The html page is divided into different sections like TitleBar followed by tabbed menu, content which has images as shown in below screenshot.

To create a Content View with three images as shown in screenshot, separate styles have been defined for all images, text and background applied to 'div' elements as shown below

<div id="carusel" class="ui-main-content">
  <div class="ui-coru-background ui-coru-item-prev">
    <img id="prev-image" class="ui-coru-image-thumb" src="./images/recepies/RECE-01.jpg" />
    <div class="ui-coru-sub-text1">First Text1</div>

Page Carousel JavaScript File

Handling Swipe Events

On user's swipe events, images in the content area are scolled from left to right based on swipe direction. This functionality can be acheived by moving the page scroll view as shown below.

$("#content").on('swipeleft', function(e) {
  if( index < 6)
    $("#carusel").animate( 	{"left": "-=65%"},"slow");
    index++ ;
    $('#pagecontrol1').pagecontrol("value", index);

Handling Click Event on Menu

The below sample code used for changing the tabbed Menu state to active and changing images in content area with VIDEO images.

$("#list2").bind("vclick", function() {
  var data=   ' <div  class="ui-coru-background ui-coru-item-prev">';
  data += '<img id="prev-image" class="ui-coru-image-thumb" src="./images/videos/01.jpg" />';
  data +=  '<div class="ui-coru-sub-text1">First Text1</div>';
  data  +=  '<div class="ui-coru-sub-text2">Sub Text</div>';
  data += '</div>';
  data += '<div  class="ui-coru-background ui-coru-item-curr">';
  data += '	<img id="curr-image" class="ui-coru-image-thumb" src="./images/videos/02.jpg" />';
  data += '	<div class="ui-coru-sub-text1">First Text2</div>';
  data += '	<div class="ui-coru-sub-text2">Sub Text</div>';
  data +=  '</div>';
  data += '<div  class="ui-coru-background ui-coru-item-next">';
  data +='	<img id="next-image" class="ui-coru-image-thumb" src="./images/videos/03.jpg" />';
  data += '	<div class="ui-coru-sub-text1">First Text3</div>';
  data +='	<div class="ui-coru-sub-text2">Sub Text</div>';
  data+=  '</div>';
