Carousel Thumbnail Scrollable Navigation


Product Carousel for Blazor


How to add a thumbnail scrollable navigation below the page/image in Carousel? This would be a nice addition, which would allow independent scrolling from that of the current page. It will also be clickable in the same way that the dots are to jump to the selected page.


To add a thumbnail scrollable navigation:

  1. Add HTML <div> container under the Carousel markup.
  2. Apply custom CSS with the needed styles to the container.
  3. Inside the <div>, loop through all the images in Carousel and define them in a smaller size.
  4. Optionally, use a javascript function that keeps the synchronization of the AutomaticPageChange and the thumbnail.
