    Hi,

    I'm new to RadCoverFlow and this is a new control.

    Is it possible to blur the other items that is not selected?

    Can you show a simple databinding or itemsouce to the coverflow?

    How can i show item info?

    Can I highlight the selected coverflow item? for example giving it a border?

    Hi Cheng Lim Sek,

    Yes, it is possible to blur the items that are not selected. However, this feature is not out of the box, and is necessary to implement it, you just have to apply the blurring effect to all items that are different from the SelectedItem. You can easily achieve this by creating a user control and a visual state for the blurring effect, we have an example that demonstrates how to create a user control and a visual state and apply it in the selected item of the CoverFlow control in our FirstLook CoverFlow example.

    Moreover, we also have an example for our CoverFlow control that demonstrates a DataBinding model. You can also check the Data Binding CoverFlow for Silverlight article by Valeri Hristov. It also contains a sample project that you can find quite handy.

    I hope these resources will help you achieve your goals, if you cannot make use of them or have questions about something, do not hesitate to contact us again.

    Best wishes,

    You mean i apply the blurring effect at code behind?

    Can show any example code?

    Why Cover flow do not have themes setting like Vista Themes, etc?

    The Data Binding CoverFlow for Silverlight article by Valeri Hristov is too complicated, I'm new to the RadCoverFlow. I not understand how the data info is pair to the image. If i want to databinding, how do i match the name and info to the image?

    I have 10 images with name and info, how can I do the data binding.

    And how is the items info being show for selected item?

    Please help !!
