How do you use the auto stop feature in jQuery?

I am trying to get the auto stop feature to work in my image slider.

This is what I have but it doesn't work.

Any help would be greatly apprectiated

        jQuery(document).ready(function($) {

			animtype      : 'fade',
            height      : 236,
            width       : 658,
			 autostop:    1,
            responsive  : true

I'm not certain which jQuery slider you're using, but I'm guessing it's the one at Check out the options at the bottom of that page. Autostop isn't one of the options, but automatic is. If you want the slide to not automatically switch between slides, try changing "autostop: 1" to "automatic: false" in your code.

Thanks for the reply.

Yeah that's the one.  Ideally I would like it to loop through completely once then stop on the first slide.
That slider doesn't have events available so it's not built into the plug-in. You could try looking through the plug-in source code and find anywhere the slide change is being made. Check to see if you're on the last slide. If you are, then set automatic to false and move to the first slide.

The better solution is probably to find a different slider or carousel that has an on change event or has the functionality you want built in.
