Google API

Last month google released an update to their AJAX Slide Show application, created using their AJAX Feed API.

New in this release are:

  • The Full Control Panel
    This will give you a pause/play button, as well as forward and previous controls. The Full Control Panel will fade in and out on mouse events. The Full Control Panel will also auto-fade out when the mouse does not move for some period of time.
  • Animation and Pause Callbacks
    The Slide Show supports a number of callbacks which your application can use to alter its behavior and react to whats going on in the slide show. For instance, you might have a custom feed which requires that you compute the url of the image for an entry, or you might want to alter the click behavior to play an embedded movie when someone clicks on an image (instead of following a hyperlink). All of this is easy to setup using the Slide Show callbacks.
  • Position Bias for Images and Controls
    By default the Slide Show is configured to center the images to be displayed. It also automatically positions the controls, such as the pause image, approximately on the bottom 1/3 of the Slide Show. As an application, you can provide position bias to images, controls, or both, using the centerBias and pauseCenterBias properties of options. Bias is expressed as an object with topBias and leftBias, both expressed as offsets in pixels.

Here's an example slide show from Google's site:
