Introduction

Carousel.png

A widget that displays a set of images. Users can navigate through the images. When one selects an image or go to the previous/next image, a smooth transition is applied.

Usage

The first thing to do is to instantiate the widget and add images (by using the methods setImages or addImage)

final Carousel carousel = new Carousel(shell, SWT.NONE);
carousel.addImage(loadImage("images/first.png"));
carousel.addImage(loadImage("images/second.jpg"));
carousel.addImage(loadImage("images/third.png"));

You can customise some elements : color of arrows (setArrowColor()) or the circles :

  • The selected index is represented by a filled circle which color that can be changed by calling the method setCircleBackground()
  • The non-selected index is represented by a circle that which color can be changed by calling the method setCircleForeground()
  • You can change the hover color (color used when the mouse is on a circle) with the method setCircleHoverColor()

A SelectionEvent is fired when the user selects and image.

Example

An example called CarouselSnippet.java is located in the plugin org.eclipse.nebula.widgets.carousel.snippets.

This example is also available here : CarouselSnippet.java
