Advanced: Dynamic Animated Thumbnail Gallery

In this tutorial we will show you how to create an Animated Thumbnail Gallery from dynamic source.
*You can also check out the video.

How to do it

1. We created a data source, using HTML5 Data Bindings. Let's add an Animated Thumbnail Gallery (2) from the insert panel (1).

2. We're not going to add any images now, just an empty gallery. Click OK

3. Now, click inside the gallery container (1). We have already created a data source that retrieves our images from a database. From the data bindings panel (2) select the repeating element (3) of your data source.

4. Select the repeat children from the dropdown menu (1) and click insert (2).

5. You see that a repeat children region has been successfully added inside the gallery container. Choose the data element (1) that corresponds to the thumbnail images and select the image option (2). When you're done, click insert (3).

6. Select the dynamic image that we just added. (1), add some dummy link to it (2) and hit the enter (3).

7.  From the data bindings panel, select the data element (1) corresponding to the big images (1). Choose the a.href option (2) and click the bind button (3).

8. You can customize the gallery appearance, by clicking on its tag and selecting the Live editor button in the property inspector.

9. As you are editing a gallery that contains dynamic data the images here are just dummy samples for preview. You can customize the style, geometry and animation options. When you're done customizing the gallery, click ok, save and preview the result.
