‹‹ homejQuery Cycle Plugin - Option Reference


The cycle function can be passed a command string in the form:
The following command strings are supported:
'pause'   // pauses the slideshow, slideshow can be resumed with 'resume' command
'resume'  // resumes a paused slideshow
'toggle'  // toggles the pause/resume state of the slideshow
'next'    // advances slideshow to next slide
'prev'    // advances slideshow to previous slide
'stop'    // stops the slideshow
'destroy' // stops the slideshow and unbinds all events


The following default options are provided by the plugin. They can be overridden by passing an options object to the cycle method, by using metadata on the container element, or by redefining these values in your own code. Lots of cool effects can be achieved by taking advantage of these options, but none of them are required. So override the ones you like and ignore the ones you don't care about.
// override these globally if you like (they are all optional)
