Sliding Page Widget


Apps - Widget - Sliding Page icon.png This type of widget belongs to the Basic category in the widget library. It enables you to insert a slideshow showing a series of slides, each of which can call an app page. A set of properties is used to configure the behavior of the slideshow in execute mode, e.g. auto advance, navigation display mode, etc.

  • You can only browse through the pages of the app. You cannot insert a page from another app or a HTML page in the slideshow.
  • The order in the Slides Page list defines the order in which slides are displayed in the slideshow.

Caution

  • If you disable the auto advance function of the slideshow (Timer option), you should display the Previous Apps - Previous icon.png and Next Apps - Next icon.png arrows (Navigation Arrows option). If you do not do so, users will not be able to view the slideshow.
