API Called Direction

i am trying to figure out how to get which direction was called with slider.ev.on(rsBeforeAnimStart) but i can't find the information in the documentation. For example if i click on the right arrow i want to get the information direction / transition: "right". So i can trigger something when the end of the slideshow is reached and one still clicks the right arrow to load the (not existing) next slide.

Thanks in advance.


I managed to extend the next and prev function for the result i want:

    // Extend Prev
    slider.prev = function( /* optional_arguments */  ) {
        // First Slide
        if ( slider.currSlideId+1 == 1 ) {
                            // First Slide - do something
            console.log("Tried to go prev the first slide");
        } else {                        
            $.rsProto.prev.call(this /* , optional_arguments */ ); 

But i can't trigger the console.log when i drag the slideshow. It seems dragging ignores prev and next methods.

    There is type parameter in rsBeforeMove callback that is direction ("next" or "prev", or ID of slide to move).

    slider.ev.on('rsBeforeMove', function(e, type) {
        var nextIndex = slider.currSlideId;
        if(type === 'next') {
        } else if(type === 'prev') {
        } else {
           nextIndex = type;
         var newSlide = slider.slides[nextIndex];
         if(newSlide) {
            // new slide element would be: newSlide.content
