I'd like to have a feature for the carousel's indicator. Currently the indicator is hovering over the carousel. Which means, if I put items in the carousel using a dataview, list, (think of the AppStore on the iPad), I'd like the indicators to be UNDER the items that are in the carousel as opposed to overlay them.
The same is true for full size carouse images. The indicators will hover over the image.
I'd like an option where the indicators will automatically shrink the carousel's content area and so they can be positioned at the bottom with, say, a single color row, so the indicators are clearly visible.
Currently I'm using a twisted workaround for this. On resize and painted events, I measure the height of the carousel, then subtract from it the height of the titlebar, then measure and subtract the height of the indicators, and that will be the actual height of the carousel. Then I have to use this number to lay out the contents so that the indicators will not be positioned over the contents and will have clear visibility. To do all this is an overkill.
Unless, of course, someone can suggest a better way of going about this. I tried docking the indicator at the bottom, thinking this would reduce the content height of the carousel, but had no effect for some reason.
