Keyboard arrow keys navigation with Easy Slider 1.7


I'm trying to edit the <a href="http://cssglobe.com/post/5780/easy-slider-17-numeric-navigation-jquery-slider" rel="nofollow">Easy Slider</a> to allow the keyboard's arrow keys to navigate the slideshow.

I tried editing the <a href="http://stanford.edu/group/webdev/champions/js/easy-slider.js" rel="nofollow">javascript's</a> animate function from:

default: t = dir; break;


default: t = parseInt(dir); break;

...but that didn't work.

Does anyone know how to use the keyboard's arrow keys to navigate this slideshow?


Assuming your next and prev links have IDs of #next and #prev:

$(document).keydown(function(e){ if (e.keyCode == 39) { $('a#next').trigger('click'); } else if (e.keyCode == 37) { $('a#prev').trigger('click'); } });

I'm also not familiar with easy slider, but if they have a way to programmatically switch the slides back and forth, then you could swap out the triggers with those. The posted solution will work fine though.
