Slick Slider Carousel with Custom Next and Prev Buttons

I had a slider the other day where i needed to attach some detached buttons, so added the following click events to control the next and previous events on the slider. 

Note the class names: slick-next and slick-prev are already used if you are binding click events and having issues. 

Note 2: for some reason the previous button works and the next does not work, not sure why this is. Further investigation required here. 

Update: this is fixed, i was referencing slide not slider! an easy fix. Next button works now.

Random CSS Property


The mask-image CSS property sets the image that is used as mask layer for an element. By default this means the alpha channel of the mask image will be multiplied with the alpha channel of the element. This can be controlled with the mask-mode property.
