jquery jcarousel how to add control buttons

I am currently working on a site,that uses Sorgilla jquery jcarousel, there are two sliders working together.

var carousel_2;
jQuery(document).ready(function() {
jQuery('#right-carousel').jcarousel({
    start: 1, // Configuration goes here
    wrap: "circular",
    scroll: 1,
    auto:3,
    vertical:true,

    itemFirstInCallback: {
    onBeforeAnimation: function(carousel, item, index, action) {
        if (carousel_2) {
            carousel_2[action]();
        }



            }
        }
    });
});

jQuery(document).ready(function() {
jQuery('#mycarousel').jcarousel({
    start: 3, // Configuration goes here
    wrap: "circular",
    scroll: 1,
    auto:3,
    vertical:false,
    buttonNextHTML: null,
    buttonPrevHTML: null,
    initCallback: function(c) {
    carousel_2 = c;
}
});

});

This works as it should but I am wondering is it possible to add external controls with the set up I am using. Unfortunately Im quite new to jquery so still learning.

What Im looking to do is add buttons underneath the carousel that behave like pagination, here is an example... http://truelogic.org/multicarousel.php or http://www.skyports.com

here is the site im working on http://hartyinternational.hailstormcommerce.com/

Ideally if I could get those pagination buttons working similar to above, itd be great.

I have this css set up underneath the carousel.

.jcarousel-pagination {
width:100px;
height:40px;
position:absolute;
right:100px;
bottom:0px;
background:#000;

}

.jcarousel-pagination a {
font-size: 75%;
text-decoration: none;
padding: 0 5px;
margin: 0 0 5px 0;
border: 1px solid #fff;
color: #eee;
background-color: #4088b8;
font-weight: bold; 
}

Here is some documentation... http://sorgalla.com/projects/jcarousel/

I was considering adding this code to the function inside initCallback: but unsure how to get it working or how to tell it what button represents what slide...

                jQuery('.jcarousel-pagination a').bind('click', function() {
            carousel.scroll(jQuery.jcarousel.intval(jQuery(this).text()));
            return false;
            });

Any help would be great, I know its a bit of a general question, but im not sure where to start Thank you.

Answer

Actually they use this function to rotate

 jQuery(document).ready(function() {
    $('.lnkDot').click(function(){alert(1)
        var img = jQuery(this).attr('id');
        var id = img.substring(img.length-1);

        var currId = currentDot;
        var i = 0;
        var start= 0;
        var stop = 0;

        if (parseInt(currId) < parseInt(id)) {
            start = currId;
            stop = id;
        }
        else {
            start= id;
            stop = currId;
        }
        for (i = start; i<= stop; i++) {
            actionFromDot = true;

            var carousel = jQuery('#mycarousel').data('jcarousel');
            carousel.next();

        }
        currentDot = id;

        return false;
    });
});

What they do is, when they click on the pagination they takes the id of the current element and get the number (var id = img.substring(img.length-1);).

Once they get the number they will have start and end position to rotate (Start position they calculate from global variable currentDot).

Later the make clicked id is currentDot

Change your pagination links like this.

<a href="#" id='page1' class='lnkDot'>1</a>
<a href="#" id='page2' class='lnkDot'>2</a>
<a href="#" id='page3' class='lnkDot'>3</a>
