NativeScript NA Slider plugin

NOTE! Android is currently not supported.

A NativeScript slider. The successor of my previous, deprecated slideshow plugin, nativescript-na-slideshow.

Installation

$ tns plugin add nativescript-na-slider

Usage

Slides can be added statically inside the XML as below:

<Page xmlns:NASlider="nativescript-na-slider">

<NASlider:NASlider id="slider">
<NASlider:NASliderContainer>
<NASlider:NASliderSlide>
<Label text="Slide 1" />
</NASlider:NASliderSlide>
<NASlider:NASliderSlide>
<Label text="Slide 2" />
</NASlider:NASliderSlide>
<NASlider:NASliderSlide>
<Label text="Slide 3" />
</NASlider:NASliderSlide>
</NASlider:NASliderContainer>
</NASlider:NASlider>

</Page>

Using <Repeater>

For a more dynamic slider, a <Repeater> can be used:

<Page xmlns:NASlider="nativescript-na-slider">

<NASlider:NASlider items="{{ slides }}">
<Repeater>
<Repeater.itemsLayout>
<NASlider:NASliderContainer />
</Repeater.itemsLayout>
<Repeater.itemTemplate>
<NASlider:NASliderSlide>
<Label text="{{ text }}" />
</NASlider:NASliderSlide>
</Repeater.itemTemplate>
</Repeater>
</NASlider:NASlider>

</Page>

This way, a slider can simply be set up with an ObservableArray. The <NASliderContainer> will act as the Repeater's itemsLayout, while a <NASliderSlide> becomes the wrapper itemTemplate of the Repeater.
