React-Bootstrap is a front-end framework that was designed keeping react in mind. Carousel Component provides a way to create a slideshow for our images or text slides with a present full manner in a cyclic way. We can use the following approach in ReactJS to use the react-bootstrap Carousel Component.

Carousel Props:

  • as: It can be used as a custom element type for this component.
  • controls: These are used to show the next/previous button in the carousel.
  • defaultActiveIndex: It is the default active index which is 0.
  • fade: It is used to add a fade animation between slides while movement.
  • indicators: It is used to show a set of slide position indicators.
  • interval: It is used to delay time between automatically cycling movement.
  • keyboard: It is used to indicate whether the carousel should react to the keyboard event or not.
  • nextIcon: It is used to override the default next icon.
  • nextLabel: It can be used to show the next element in the carousel, and it is a type of label that is only shown to screen readers.
  • onSelect: It is a callback that is triggered when the active item changes.
  • onSlid: It is a callback that is triggered when a slide transition ends.
  • onSlide: It is a callback that is triggered when a slide transition starts.
  • pause: It is used to pause the slide based on different mouse events.

  • prevLabel: It can be used to show the previous element in the carousel, and it is a type of label that is only shown to screen readers.
  • ref: It is used to provide the ref attribute for this element.
  • slide: It is used to enable the animation between slides.
  • touch: It is used on touchscreen devices to indicate whether it should support left/right swipe interactions.
  • wrap: It indicates whether the carousel should have a hard stop or cycle continuously.
  • bsPrefix: It is an escape hatch for working with strongly customized bootstrap CSS.

Carousel.Item Props:
