The Carousel component allows you to display a selection of rotating views at a defined rate with a link to the view on a page in your project. The Carousel component can automatically cycle through the views or a user can click through the views on demand, either way, still providing a link to the view on a page.

This version updates how the component handles drag transition ("swiping" across embedded views). Only common rotational angles are supported (90, 180, 270, 360) for drag transitions. If the Carousel's rotation doesn't match one of those angles, then drag transition is disabled.
Here are a few best practices when working with the Carousel component.
- Components such as the Video Player and Map are performance intensive components and should not be embedded in the Carousel since they can hurt session performance.
- Avoid embedding views containing carousels in a carousel. This can become confusing for users.
- Avoid embedding views that contain iFrame components. It's easy for content embedded in an iFrame to steal focus from other components. Also, depending on the content in the iFrame, it may impact performance.
