  • About this demo
  • C#
  • VB

This demo illustrates how you could easily bind the RadImageGallery to Telerik ClientDataSource. The functionality is available out of the box by using the ClientDataSourceID property.

In this demo the RadClientDataSource control is retrieving the data from a WebService. Also the following properties are set for the RadImageGallery:

  • DataImageField is set to the field containing the image URL.
  • DataThumbnailField is set to the field containing the thumbnail URL. If this property is not set the thumbnails will be generated by the RadImageGallery.
  • DataTitleField is set to the field containing the image title.
