change jquery bxslider options in responsive

I would like to have different settings for my slider depending on its responsive state.
for example:

var windowsize = $(window).width();

    if (windowsize < 630) {
		$('.slider-landing').bxSlider({
			minSlides: 1,
			maxSlides: 1,
			moveSlides: 1,
			mode: 'fade',
			startSlide: 0,
			captions: false
		});
		
	} else {
		$('.slider-landing').bxSlider({
			minSlides: 1,
			maxSlides: 4,
			moveSlides: 1,
			mode: 'horizontal',
			slideWidth: 280,
			startSlide: 0,
			slideMargin: 10,
			captions: true
		});
	}

Open in new window

     
On initial load of the page it seems to work fine, but when I resize the viewport the changes do not get applied to the slider?

Do I need to destroy and reload?

Thanks

No you just need it in a function and fire it with onresize  event.

Check this : http://bxslider.com/examples/reload-slider-settings

	$(document).ready(function() {

		var settings = function() {
			var settings1 = {
				minSlides: 1,
				maxSlides: 1,
				moveSlides: 1,
				mode: 'fade',
				startSlide: 0,
				captions: false
			};
			var settings2 = {
				minSlides: 1,
				maxSlides: 4,
				moveSlides: 1,
				mode: 'horizontal',
				slideWidth: 280,
				startSlide: 0,
				slideMargin: 10,
				captions: true
			};
			return ($(window).width()<630) ? settings1 : settings2;
		}

		$(window).resize(function() {
			$('.slider-landing').reloadSlider(settings);
		});
		
		$('.slider-landing').bxSlider(settings);

	});

Im getting a reloadSlider is not a function JS error?

My current code is:
      
      
$(document).ready(function () {
		if (pageType.val() == "tour-landing-page") {
			
			tourLandingScript();
			$(window).resize(tourLandingScript);
				
			// initiates responsive slide gallery
				
			var settings = function() {
				var settings1 = {
					minSlides: 1,
					maxSlides: 1,
					moveSlides: 1,
					mode: 'fade',
					startSlide: 0,
					captions: false
				};
				var settings2 = {
					minSlides: 1,
					maxSlides: 4,
					moveSlides: 1,
					mode: 'horizontal',
					slideWidth: 280,
					startSlide: 0,
					slideMargin: 10,
					captions: true
				};
				return ($(window).width()<630) ? settings1 : settings2;
			}
			
			$('.slider-landing').bxSlider(settings);
		
		}
	});
	
	function tourLandingScript() {
		var windowsize = $(window).width();
	
		$('.slider-landing').reloadSlider(settings);
		
		if (windowsize < 630) {
			// more mobile scripts here
		} else {
			// more desktop scripts here
		}
	}

Thanks, I have applied your code on a test page and none of the settings get applied - settings1 or settings2.
It appears to be just the default.

Therefore it also doesn't change when the viewport size changes either.

YOU add the line 31 and 34, not sure why
remove them for testing, it was not the subject of your main question

Even with those lines removed it does nothing still.

I miss the () after settings
and declare your var before using them

I used this solution on a site I am developing.

Everything seemed to work except when resizing teh window my captions disappeared.

I am using boostrap 3.1.1, jquery 1.10.1, bxslider 4.1

I am positioning my captions outside the ttile attribute like this


 
					<div>
						<img src="walk-fpo-800.jpg" alt="Partner">
						<div class='bx-caption'>
							<a href=''><span>Top Picks June 14th<br><span class='white-title'>12am - 10pm</span></span> 
							<span class='head'>Flag day - Light the museum pink <i class='fa fa-caret-square-o-right'></i></span></a>
						</div>
					</div>

Is this the title attribute problem? DO I need to give you more on this?
