Hey Guys,

I've been struggling with this situation for a few hours and have read everything I could find online.

What I'm doing is displaying Information from a DataObject to create a carousel (using jCarousel). The part I'm struggling with is displaying a bit of information from the next Item, the name, so basically it says next item is called 'item name'.

I looked on the web for a solution and found something called 'peekNext'. I tried to implement this in the template like so:

<% control Products %>

$productName
$productImage

<% control peekNext %>$productName<% end_control %>

<% end_control %>

But I've had no luck.

Any Help?

quick google leads me to believe..

<% if Iterator.peekNext %>

instead of

<% if peekNext %>

and I'd also advise nivo slider over jcarosel anyday of the week (including today)

Hey swaiba,

I tried what you suggested but it failed on me and caused an error.

I swapped out the

<% control peekNext %>$productName<% end_control %>

for this

<% if Iterator.peekNext %>$productName<% end_if %>

but to no avail. Just got an error.

From what I understand it's supposed to allow you pull data from the next data object. At least that is the outcome I would like to achieve.

I'm the process of creating a module and widget set. It creates a dataobject tied to a page type; the data object being a motor home and the page type being a motor home category.

The peekNext part is part of the widget. It is supposed to display all the motor homes regardless of their category page, which it does. But also on each motor home entry i would like it to display the one that is going to appear next.

If you get what I'm trying to explain.

I get what you are saying - I'm obviously not being clear enough myself.... what is the code when you execute outputing... is it blank? is it erroring? what is exactly is the result of the code?
