Extend the ASP•NET Image Slider to make your own Video control (coming soon in v2013 vol 1)

28 May 2013

Check out this video playback control that was made using the versatile DevExpress ASP .NET image slider control:

DevExpress ASP.NET Image Slider Templates - Video Gallery Sample

How? Templates, ftw!

The animated gif above shows the DevExpress ASP.NET Image Slider control’s new templates support. ASP.NET Templates allow you to extend the control by defining your own HTML that you want to use within a control. So, in the above sample, we’ve created a couple of divs and some custom CSS to make a slick video playback control.

If you’d like to see the template’s HTML code, click the image below:


Specifically, we’ve add support for ItemTemplate, ItemTextTemplate, and ItemThumbnailTemplate.

What would be really cool is to have this in WINFORMS.  Need a way to show tutorial videos within our Windows app.

I'm with Neal on this - adding this to the WinForms Suite would be great.

Great addition to an already awesome control.

Mehul, will the upcoming changes to the imageslider include the ability for it to display images from a LINQ File System Providor (database binary image column)?

Neal & Mark,

Thanks for your feedback. I recommend creating a suggestion.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

The changes you currently implemented worked for what I was trying to accomplish. (BinayImageCacheFolder and ImageContentBytes fields).
