Binding to Folder and Static Collection

This demo shows two ways for binding the RadImageGallery:

  • Binding to Folder - it is as easy as setting the RadImageGallery ImagesFolderPath property and providing it an absolute or relative location to the folder. The control will automatically generate small thumbnail images that will be cropped automatically to fit the thumbnail width and height.
    Additionally, the images in the Image Area have relative paths and the user only needs to wait for the image to be loaded by the browser.
  • Binding to Static Collection - the RadImageGallery control supports static item collection binding. The idea is to specify items and their properties in the RadImageGallery.Items collection.
  • DefaultVB.aspx
  • Styles.css
