PlayPause button

The Play/Pause button lets a user pause or resume carousel autoplay behavior.

The button is visible only if the CarouselViewer.autoplay parameter is set to 1; otherwise, it is hidden. You can size, skin, and position this button, relative to the control bar that contains it, by using CSS.

The appearance of the button is controlled with the following CSS class selector:
