I'd like to build a content rotator web part for SharePoint 2010 to display list information. I'm working with the ever-popular AnythingSlider. A couple of questions:
- How would I let the page author set the AnythingSlider's defaults, such as buildArrows, width, height, and other properties from the web part edit dialog?
- Is this a project best done in Visual Studio as a visual web part?
- I'm going to create it as a content query web part with a custom ItemStyle.xsl file. This will then contain the AnythingSlider code. It might pull data from a list in another site, and therefore the CQWP choice. Is this a good approach?
Also, if you know of a good (and free) SharePoint content rotator, please advise. I'm looking for something that can handle any kind of content, thus the AnythingSlider. Thanks :)
