Go to URL on slide click

Nov 27, 2008 at 7:29 PM

Has anyone extended the Slide.Show 2 control to launch a new window to a URL when a slide is clicked? Ideally with the URL specified in the data.xml for each slide?

If so, are you feeling generous? :)

Solution: Hmm, this appears to have been added in Slide.Show 2! :)




/// <summary>



/// Gets or sets the link.



/// </summary>



/// <value>The link.</value>



public Uri Link { get; set; }

Yes, this is already included using the link attribute.  You can also set the transition (but not transition timing) for each slide using the transition attribute.
This changes the cursor to a hand when the user is over the slide and when you click, it opens up a new window going to the link address.

Is there anyway to open the link in the same window?

Nevermind, figured it out.

rainmanjam ... how did you set "_self" in the data.xml file?
