I tried setting EnableAutoLoop to False (in VB.NET) in the Form's Load event handler. It had no effect. FYI, EnableAutoLoop was already set to False when the form first loaded. I didn't have to set it, although I did anyway, as such (using VB.NET):
Me.RadCarousel1.EnableAutoLoop = False
... all to no effect.
Perhaps if I add a little more detail, maybe it will help you to suggest an alternate solution. I have what I'll call the main form. It has the carousel control on it. When I click on one of the Items (a RadImageButtonElement) on it, the .Click event handler is raised for that item. The event handler opens a form using the typical WinForms formName.Show() method:
Private Sub RadImageButtonElement1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmdItemDesigner.Click
Me.Cursor = Cursors.WaitCursor
Me.Cursor = Cursors.Default
In the form that opens (in my case, frmItemMain) I do some work, and then eventually close it, returning me to the main form. At that point the items on the carousel rotate or have already rotated.
Note, I have Telerik WinForms Controls version 2011.1.11.419.
UPDATE: OK, here's what I'm seeing... Apparently, the first time I close the child form, it rotates. After that, the items don't rotate, as long as I keep selecting the same item. If I select a different item, the child form opens, i do some work, close it, the items rotate. Then as long as I keep selecting that item, the items won't rotate.
