Display dot and thumbnail representations at any one of the four sides: left, right, top, or bottom. On mobile devices, the top or bottom placement provides more horizontal space to display the selected items.


Looping

The looping option helps users to navigate back to the first item when they reach the last item. This provides a better review experience when the control is loaded with many items.
