Carousel is a customized Panel, provides the ability to slide back and forth between different child items. It usually adds the items as in card layout and on slide it flips through the items. Carousel can be created using either ways, using Ext.Carousel class constructor or by using carousel xtype.

Provides an indicator while toggling between items to notify the user to know where they are in the card stack. You can also disable the indicator by setting the indicatorconfiguration property to false. The direction configuration property allows user to set the direction of the Carousel. Default is ‘horizontal’.

Below is the example demonstrating the usage of Carousel.

	icon : 'icon.png',
	tabletStartupScreen : 'tablet_startup.png',
	phoneStartupScreen : 'phone_startup.png',
	glossOnIcon : false,
	onReady : function() {
		var title = new Ext.Toolbar({
			 title: 'Carousel Example'
		var actionBar = new Ext.Toolbar({
            id: 'mytoolbar',
            dock: 'bottom',
            ui: 'light',
             items: [{
                xtype: "button",
                ui: "back",
                text: "Previous",
                handler: function(){
                xtype: "button",
                ui: "forward",
                text: "Next",
                handler: function(){;
		var carousel = new Ext.Carousel({
	            direction: 'horizontal',
	            items: [{
	                title: 'Tab 1',
	                html: 'Carousel Tab 1'
	                title: 'Tab 2',
	                html: 'Carousel Tab 2'
	                title: 'Tab 3',
	                html: 'Carousel Tab  3'
		var formBase = new Ext.Panel({
			layout : 'fit',
			pinHeaders: true,
			id: 'formbase',
			name: 'formBase',
			fullscreen : true,
			items: [carousel],
			dockedItems: [title, actionBar]
