    Firstly I'm quite new to Silverlight so I've probably missed something really basic - so sorry in advance :)

    The looping list is exacly the control I need, except I want to loop horizontally not vertically. So I have added the control to my page and rotated it 90degs then rotated the stackpanel contained in the ItemTemplate back 90degs.

    This looks fine however to make the list loop I still have to swipe up or down, not left to right which is the desired behaviour.

    Standard LoopingList behaviour:
    ITEM 1
    ITEM 2
    ITEM 3   ↕ swipe up or down to make the list loop
    ITEM 4
    ITEM 5

    Desired behaviour:
    ITEM 1 | ITEM 2 | ITEM 3 | ITEM 4 | ITEM 5
    <--  --> swipe left or right to make the list loop

    What my rotated LoopingList does at the moment
    ITEM 1 | ITEM 2 | ITEM 3 | ITEM 4 | ITEM 5
    ↕ swipe up or down make the list loop

    Is there a way of altering the swipe direction to allow for a rotated LoopingList?

    Cheers

    Hello Simon,

    Thanks for contacting us and for your question.

    Currently there is no way to implement the scenario that you require since the RadLoopingList control internally considers the vertical delta in a manipulation event to perform the flick and scroll operations. Could you please share with us some further details on your scenario so that we can better understand it and thus be able to evaluate the possibility of a possible extension of the control to support this feature?

    Thanks for your time.

    All the best,

    Hio Deyan,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I was hoping to use the LoopingList as an "image gallery" control where the user chooses a thumbnail image from the loopinglist and taps through to view a larger version. The only option missing on your control is being able to render the list horizontally not vertically.

    Cheers

    Hi Simon,

    Thanks for writing back and for the requested details.

    Indeed, this is a valid point in favor of supporting this functionality in RadLoopingList. I would therefore like to inform you that we decided to extend the control to support this case. Currently I am not able to give you an exact time-frame when it will be available. We hope that we will be able to introduce it within the Q2 2011 release of RadControls for Windows Phone 7. Check out our announcements and blog posts on our website on a regular basis for further information.

    I have also updated your account with 1000 points for this feature request.

    Thanks for your time.

    Hi Deyan,

    Thanks for the points :), good to hear that the feature will be included!

    Just want to say that the forum support has been great so far, quick and helpful answers. I'm just getting started with WP7 and your controls and it's nice to feel confident that any questions will be looked into swiftly.

    Cheers!
    Simon
