How to: Use Built-in Path Types

This example shows how to specify a path for a CarouselPanel via the ItemMovingPath property.

The path assigned to this property is retrieved from a specific resource (ResourceId=Ellipse) defined in the DXCarousel library. Other built-in path types include: HalfEllipse, Line, Angle, Arc, Rectangle, Sine and Spiral.

<Window x:Class="CarouselItemMovingPath.Window1" 
        xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" 
        xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" 
        xmlns:dxca="http://schemas.devexpress.com/winfx/2008/xaml/carousel"
        Title="Window1" Height="300" Width="300" >
    <Grid>
        <Grid.Resources>
            <Style TargetType="{x:Type Rectangle}" 
                   BasedOn="{StaticResource {ComponentResourceKey TypeInTargetAssembly={x:Type dxca:CarouselPanel}, ResourceId=advancedCarouselItemStyle}}" />
        </Grid.Resources>

        <dxca:CarouselPanel Margin="12" Name="carouselPanel1" VisibleItemCount="5" ActiveItemIndex="2" 
                            ItemMovingPath="{StaticResource {ComponentResourceKey TypeInTargetAssembly={x:Type dxca:CarouselPanel}, ResourceId=Ellipse}}">
            <Rectangle Fill="Red" />
            <Rectangle Fill="Green" />
            <Rectangle Fill="Blue" />
            <Rectangle Fill="Yellow" />
            <Rectangle Fill="Beige" />
        </dxca:CarouselPanel>
    </Grid>
</Window>
