Rotator - Carousel Mode

Switch between two Carousel modes

Enabling RadRotator's Carousel mode

Telerik RadRotator supports (starting from Q2 2010) two additional RotatorTypes - Carousel and CarouselButtons. Modes can be set using RotatorType property of the control.

Important: The Carousel mode of RadRotator works best, in case there is only a single image in every rotator item.

  • Enabling Carousel mode directly on the markup:
    <telerik:RadRotator ID="RadRotator1" runat="server" Width="810px" ItemWidth="300"
        Height="350px" ItemHeight="220" ScrollDuration="500" FrameDuration="2000" EnableRandomOrder="true"
        PauseOnMouseOver="false" Skin="Windows7" RotatorType="Carousel">
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
  • Enabling Carousel mode in codebehind:
    RadRotator1.RotatorType = RotatorType.Carousel;

If the RotatorType="CarouselButtons" is set, then the items are moved by clicking the RadRotator's default navigation buttons located on the left and right side of the control.

In this example, RadRotator shows the content of a directory. The images are loaded using the GetFilesInFolder method, shown in the codebehind file.
