Redux::set_field( 'OPT_NAME', 'SECTION_ID', array(
    'type' => 'slides'
) );

# Example Config

Redux::addField( 'OPT_NAME', 'SECTION_ID', array(
    'id'          => 'opt-slides',
    'type'        => 'slides',
    'title'       => __('Slides Options', 'redux-framework-demo'),
    'subtitle'    => __('Unlimited slides with drag and drop sortings.', 'redux-framework-demo'),
    'desc'        => __('This field will store all slides values into a multidimensional array to use into a foreach loop.', 'redux-framework-demo')
    'placeholder' => array(
        'title'       => __('This is a title', 'redux-framework-demo'),
        'description' => __('Description Here', 'redux-framework-demo'),
        'url'         => __('Give us a link!', 'redux-framework-demo'),
    ),
) );

# Example Usage

This example assumes at least one slide has been filled out and saved, based on the example usage provided above. Individual slide information are stored in a zero-based array. Be sure to change $redux_demo to the value you specified in your opt_name argument.

IMPORTANT NOTE

Redux does NOT save blank slides to the database. This means on the initial load of your options panel, the empty slide will not be available. It will be necessary to use isset and !empty checks on the slide variable before attempting to use it in your code, as shown below.

global $redux_demo;

if ( isset( $redux_demo['opt-slides'] ) && !empty( $redux_demo['opt-slides'] ) ) {
    echo 'Slide 1 Title: '         . $redux_demo['opt-slides'][0]['title'];
    echo 'Slide 1 Description: '   . $redux_demo['opt-slides'][0]['description'];
    echo 'Slide 1 URL: '           . $redux_demo['opt-slides'][0]['url'];
    echo 'Slide 1 Attachment ID: ' . $redux_demo['opt-slides'][0]['attachment_id'];
    echo 'Slide 1 Thumb: '         . $redux_demo['opt-slides'][0]['thumb'];
    echo 'Slide 1 Image: '         . $redux_demo['opt-slides'][0]['image'];
    echo 'Slide 1 Width: '         . $redux_demo['opt-slides'][0]['width'];
    echo 'Slide 1 Height: '        . $redux_demo['opt-slides'][0]['height'];
}

# Using the show Argument

There are 3 main elements to the slide field, namely the title, description, and URL (media URL). You can easily hide any of these elements using the show argument and providing a key=>False value for the element you wish to hide.

Redux::addField( 'OPT_NAME', 'SECTION_ID', array(
    'id'          => 'opt-slides',
    'type'        => 'slides',
    'title'       => __('Slides Options', 'redux-framework-demo'),
    'subtitle'    => __('Unlimited slides with drag and drop sortings.', 'redux-framework-demo'),
    'desc'        => __('This field will store all slides values into a multidimensional array to use into a foreach loop.', 'redux-framework-demo')
    'placeholder' => array(
        'title'       => __('This is a title', 'redux-framework-demo'),
        'url'         => __('Give us a link!', 'redux-framework-demo'),
    ),
    'show'        => array( 'description' => false ),
) );
