Invoking citrus will return a slider object with various methods. This will allow you to programmatically control the slider. For example, to reset the slider you would use citrus[0].reset(). The [0] represents the index of the slider. If you have more than one slider on a page you will need to change this to the slider you intend to target.

Method Description Example
play() Unpauses and starts the automatic slideshow citrus[0].play()
stop() Stops and pauses the automatic slideshow citrus[0].stop()
prevSlide() Goes to the previous slide in the sequence citrus[0].prevSlide()
nextSlide() Goes to the next slide in the sequence citrus[0].nextSlide()
gotoSlide() Goes to the specified slide in the sequence citrus[0].gotoSlide(2)
reset() Resets slider by rebuilding and resetting status citrus[0].reset()
