Maybe you can use the slideshow widget from the appstore?


Hi there Omid,

I am not sure of how extensive your Mendix knowledge or training is but with regards to the Image slider you are hoping to create. Once the widget is downloaded from the AppStore the documentation does explain what is required. Here are the basics :

  • You will need to display a form that contains the Carousel widget
  • In your Carousel widget properties you will need to select the "Entity" you are using. This entity needs to have the System.Image entity as a generalisation
  • You will need another form with an overview grid connected to the entity which will allow you to add these images.

This will help you to create your entity and select System.Image as its generalisation : Domain model : generalisation

Adding the widget :

Hope this helps!
