Remember to click "update" button after doing changes. Note that in some sub-views of the editr when clicking a "Save" button, an update is applied automatically.
After creating new navigator it is adviced to set the title opf the navigator. By default the title is set to widget Id. Changing the title to something meaningfull will let you distinguish between various navigators. Also note that if tooltips are enabled, the title is presented as tooltip for user when moving the mouse on top of navigator widrose (when windrose type is used).
The next step will probably be to select the type of the navigator. Currently for the purpose of beta testing we provide limited set of options. We will increse this list in the future based of customer requests.
Basically this is all that you need to do in this view, for the purpose of basic operation. For advanced settings, there are more settings to play with and you can find a table with summary of settings below.
|Title||Navigator title. Help to widgets in the navigators report. Does not have any purpose on run-time|
|Arrows type||Select from among multiple variations of presenting navigator arrows. The arrows are using for scrolling. See special description below of "custom" type|
|Arrows type -> custom||
Using the "custom" arrows-type let you define elements from your own website that will operate the scrolling. To do that you specify CSS selectors of the elements you want to use for triggering scrolling actions.
If you are not familiar with CSS selectors the easiest approach is to use a selector that point to element with specified "id" attribute. Example: If you have button that you want to use for scrolling to north give this button "id" attribute with the value "scroll-north". Then set the selector like this: #croll-north in the corresponding field. In other words the selector for ids is "#some-id"
It is up to you to decide what element on the screen will trigger a scrolling in a given direction. It may be some icon, button, image etc'. The scrolling algorithms will not be affected only elements that trigger the scrolling. After scrolling to a new page there will be an attempt to re-register the events on the specified element. If you want to have continuous scrolling for each of the directions you MUST make sure that the triggering element will exist on any scrolled page having the exact same selector.
|Color fields||Set the colors of the navigator. Shadow and background refer only to wind-rose styles.|
|On list end||Determine what happen when a list of products set for specific scrolling direction reach to end. Either "rotate" that means go to first item ans start all over again or "stop" that means no scrolling will be available in that direction.|
This is probably the most non trivial field. When list are not depends on each other than scrolling on some direction will not affect the scrolling on other direction. However when lists depends on each other, the current page scrolled by one direction may act as the anchor for selecting the next product to scroll if changing direction.
Example: assuming we have two list of products:
|Scrolling speed||Determine the speed of scrolling|
|scrolling type||Select the animation effect when scrolling. The best explanation is simply to try and select you preferred type.|
