jquery-image-slider

<div id="slider-div">
	<img class="img-slide" src="1.jpg">
	<img class="img-slide" src="2.jpg">
	<img class="img-slide" src="3.jpg">
	<img class="img-slide" src="4.jpg">
</div>

jQuery UI Slide Effect

This script uses jQuery UI library to add slide effect for the sliding images.

$.fn.startSlider = function(){
	var simgderDIV=this;
	var img=simgderDIV.find(".img-slide");
	
	simgderDIV.css({overflow:"auto"});
	img.css({position:'absolute'});
	img.hide().first().show().addClass("active");
	
	var iterateTickerElement = function() {
		setInterval(function(){
			var next = $(".img-slide.active").next();
			$(".img-slide.active").hide("slide",{direction:'left'},2000);
			$(".img-slide.active").removeClass("active");
			if(next.length == 0) next = $(".img-slide").first();
			next.addClass("active");
			next.show("slide",{direction:'right'},1000);
		},2000);
	}	
	iterateTickerElement();
}

and call this script like as follows after DOM is ready

$("#slider-div").startSlider();
