After working on responsive or flexy designs, I found some serious issues about fixed width in most of images/banner sliders which I have got online. So, I thought to develop a liquid/responsive images slider with different transition effects. Here, I am going to introduce you, a most flexible/responsive slider i.e. Responsive_DG_Slider. It is so easy and useful. I have decided that I will post a page dedicated to this slider with it’s features and API later.

Here I am showing It’s full screen responsive image slider functionality powered by the fantastic java-script library jQuery. With a nice and simple design it adjusted automatically to the width of your browser screen. Image sliders add life and interactivity to your web contents. But creating an image slider from scratch is not that easy. You need some good programming skills to create your own slider. If you are not the programmer or you just don’t want to re-invent the wheel, Responsive_DG_Slider is for you. Previously, I have already developed a very simple and useful slider i. e. jQuery – DG_Slider.

Configuring Your Slider

Configuring the slider is very simple, you just need to place your images and call the initializer function and your slider is ready. Here’s how you can do this for full-screen.

The HTML

For develping a Full-Screen Background image slider you need to create the necessary HTML markups for your slider and then add references to necessary script files.

<div class="fluid_container">
        <div class="fluid_dg_wrap fluid_dg_emboss pattern_1 fluid_dg_white_skin" id="fluid_dg_wrap_4">
            <div data-thumb="slides/thumbs/1.jpg" data-src="slides/1-1280x720.jpg"></div>
            <div data-thumb="slides/thumbs/2.jpg" data-src="slides/2-1280x720.jpg"></div>
            <div data-thumb="slides/thumbs/3.jpg" data-src="slides/3-1280x720.jpg"></div>
            <div data-thumb="slides/thumbs/4.jpg" data-src="slides/4-1280x720.jpg"></div>
            <div data-thumb="slides/thumbs/5.jpg" data-src="slides/5-1280x720.jpg"></div>
            <div data-thumb="slides/thumbs/6.jpg" data-src="slides/6-1280x720.jpg"></div>
        </div>
</div>

The CSS

We have to link it’s default css file.

<link rel='stylesheet' id='fluid_dg-css'  href='css/fluid_dg.css' type='text/css' media='all'>

After attaching the default CSS, now we will customize it according to our requirement.

.fluid_container {
	bottom: 0; height: 100%; left: 0; position: fixed; right: 0; top: 0; z-index: 0;
}
#fluid_dg_wrap_4 {
	bottom: 0; height: 100%; left: 0;
	margin-bottom: 0 !important;
	position: fixed; right: 0; top: 0;
}
.fluid_dg_bar {
	z-index: 2;
}
.fluid_dg_prevThumbs, 
.fluid_dg_nextThumbs, 
.fluid_dg_prev, 
.fluid_dg_next, 
.fluid_dg_commands, 
.fluid_dg_thumbs_cont {
	background: #222;
	background: rgba(2, 2, 2, .7);
}
.fluid_dg_thumbs {
	margin-top: -100px; position: relative; z-index: 1;
}
.fluid_dg_thumbs_cont {
	border-radius: 0;
	-moz-border-radius: 0;
	-webkit-border-radius: 0;
}
.fluid_dg_overlayer {
	opacity: .1;
}

The jQuery

First, We have to add some jQuery library.

    <script type='text/javascript' src='http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.6.2.min.js'></script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src='Scripts/jquery.mobile.customized.min.js'></script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src='Scripts/jquery.easing.1.3.js'></script> 
    <script type='text/javascript' src='Scripts/fluid_dg.min.js'></script>

After adding all these library we have to initiate the Responsive_DG_Slider. In this slider’s API we have several customization options. Here we are customizing some options according to this full-screen slider.

jQuery(document).ready(function(){
	jQuery(function(){			
		jQuery('#fluid_dg_wrap_4').fluid_dg({height: 'auto', loader: 'bar', pagination: false, thumbnails: true, hover: false, opacityOnGrid: false, imagePath: ''});
	}); 
})

Done!
