Turn a flat list of items into a virtualizing carousel

CarouselPanel is a virtualizing panel control that arranges child elements along an arbitrary 3D path. You can use CarouselPanel with any items control to turn a flat list of items into a virtualizing carousel with true 3D perspectives and scrolling animation.

Define an Arbitrary Path

CarouselPanel items can navigate along any arbitrary path. Define a simple ellipse path, or create a more advanced path like a zig-zag or a figure '8.' CarouselPanel provides a simplified 3D path definition as a composition of a 2D path and a rotation angle in a 3D space.

True 3D Perspective

When distributing elements along a 3D path, the placements of child elements in 3D space are fully honored. This means that more distant elements are overlapped by nearer ones, and more distant elements will be more diminished than nearer elements. This creates a true 3D scene with a perspective effect.

Perspective Effects

The perspective effect is controlled with one property that defines how much the elements will be diminished. This depends on the distance of each element from the screen plane in 3D space.

Scroll Animation

CarouselPanel provides scrolling animation to create the effect of element movement when scrolled.

Many Control Options

CarouselPanel provides a number of control options like alignment of the path, placement of elements, and more.

Use with any Items Control

You can use CarouselPanel with any items control to turn a flat list of items into a virtualizing and interactive carousel.
