Scrollable row of thumbnails, each providing navigation

Carousel: horizontally scrolls images.

Version: 4.00

The Carousel requires a data source with images.
You can define the width of the image as well as the margins around the image.
You can also define a loading image, such as a spinner and an overlay image that sits on top of each image in the feed.
The autoscroll checkbox provides animated scrolling from right to left.

You can also feed captions for the images from the same data source.
The captions can be set on Top, Bottom or Inside Bottom. You can define the color of the background of the text as well as margins around the text itself. You can truncate the caption text by defining the amount of lines. An ellipsis (...) will be added if the text is truncated.

Carousel provides a tap action on each record in the Carousel.
