Slide Settings


A rotator can contain any number of slides, with only one slide visible at a time. A slide represents a collection of objects (text, images, other flash movies) that animate for a period of time. Then, the slide clears the scene as the next one kicks in and starts animating another objects.

Logically, a slide representation depends on the meaning of the rotator. It could be an image when the rotator is used as a image gallery, or it can be an ad when the rotator is a banner and so on.

Each slide exposes settings grouped in 3 categories as reflected below.


General Section

Following settings exist on this screen:
  • Slide Title: The slide title is displayed when hovering the navigation buttons. This field can contain My Tokens (only supported for DotNetNuke)

  • Background Gradient: This option can be used to specify the slide background as a vertical gradient or a solid color (by setting the two fields to same value).

  • Duration: This field determines the number of seconds the slide will be displayed.

Following settings exist on this screen:
