IGN's slider has this feature and it's pretty sweet.

Does Royal Slider offer such a feature and if not, can it be implemented in a future version?

    I already planned this autoplay "bar" feature, but don't expect it too soon.

    Thank you for suggestion.

    My web admin added it, i still think you should implement it in future editions for others to enjoy :)

    So this thread is a couple of years old, was this feature ever added?

    @rsmolkin, sorry, there won't be such feature. Test showed that such continuously running animation affects performance of site on mobile, which is why development was dropped.

    Really? I've seen several sliders that implement it, even if it's just a little circle that gets filled in with a timer like AJAX type stuff?
    Here are some examples that work:

    Yes, even if the loader small. Open any of those links on 2.3 - 4.0 Android phone (or WP7) and you'll see how continuously running animation makes whole page and even scrolling laggy.

    like AJAX type stuff?

    "AJAX" preloaders are usually just GIF's, which aren't running at max FPS, mobile browsers handle them much better.

    Ok, maybe it could be conditional just for desktop browsers... Thanks.
