mySlider.Size = new Size(240, 200);
//Populate ImageSlider with images
mySlider.Images.Add(Image.FromFile(@"c:\Images\im1.jpg"));
mySlider.Images.Add(Image.FromFile(@"c:\Images\im2.jpg"));
mySlider.Images.Add(Image.FromFile(@"c:\Images\im3.jpg"));
mySlider.Images.Add(Image.FromFile(@"c:\Images\im4.jpg"));
//Increase image sliding animation duration (default is 700 ms)
mySlider.AnimationTime = 1200;
//Display images at the center of ImageSlider in their original size
mySlider.LayoutMode = DevExpress.Utils.Drawing.ImageLayoutMode.MiddleCenter;
//...
//Slide to the next image
mySlider.SlideNext();
