    Hello,

    Right now you have all the different items on the same line.
    1/ I would like that my items be smaller the more they are in background. Is this possible.
    Something were the central item would have an ItemScale of 1, the second row would have 0.9, the third 0.8, etc...
    2/ I would like the non selected items have a non flat angle... see my screenshot...
    3/ Also, I would also apply a transprency effect... the more the item is in the bak, the more it is transparent...
    Is this a local effect I should apply to each item?

    Last, can I change the size of the selected item so that it can expand to show more info for example... When I select it, it will expand to double it's size and show more info... Of course the other items should keep the same size. Maybe this is just working like for the first look demo where I specify a diffrent state if the item is selected or not... simply asked... can the size of the diffrent items of the list be different ? this is probably linked to 1/

    any help on all that would be really great...
    thanks a lot in advance,
    John.

    Hello, anyone?
    Has this something to do with the samples using RadCoverFlowPerspectiveItem that I'm unable to make run?

    Hello John,

    RadCoverflow does not support such behavior. You are pretty much stuck with the options displayed in the configurator example of the coverflow.

    I am sorry for the inconvenience. If you have suggestions or feedback we would be glad to hear them.

    Best wishes,

    Hello Panayot,
    Thank you for the feedback...

    That's very unfortunate...

    The ideal for me would be to able to use something like a PathListBox as the path for my items to follow.
    It would be nice to offer the entry in the control for that.

    Also, what is about the RadCoverFlowPerspectiveItem I can see here and there? The name looks promissing to me but I was unable to make the samples I found on your site run... Could you point me to a sample using that class working with the latest radcontrol version?

    That would be kind of you,
    Thanks in advance,
    John.

    Hello John,

    We have considered your issues and decided to give it a try. We will not create a PathCoverFlow but at least we will try to expose an overridable method that specify how the items scale and rotate depending on how far they are from the selected item so it would be possible to achieve your scenario. This will not happen before Q1 though and even then we can not commit that we will release it since we are not sure how this will interfere things like virtualization for example.

    RadCoverFlowPerspectiveItem is obsolete. It has been used to simulate perspective but Silverlight now supports perspective transform.

    Good news...

    Sadly this will come too late for my needs. I have started a solution using Flash (*irk*)...

    I guess you could make sure that those new features are disabled when using virtualisation?

    Take special care to the fact that the items can overlap (hopefully) and that they should draw correctly using the correct Z order (this is an issue with many flash coverflow as they simulate 3D with scaling items and have problems drawing things correctly when they overlap)

    Idealy I would like to be able to specifiy an angle on all 3 axes. And space between items should be scaled by the distance...

    I guess I'm not the only one asking those features? The thing for us is that we should be able to bend how the coverflow looks to make it match exactly the way our designer have drawn it... When I came out telling that the only way I was able to draw my items, was flat, people did not believe me ;)

    Thank  you for your listening anyway ;)
    John.

    Hello John,

    I do have at least 5 years of experience in Flash dating back to the times of "Macromedia - what the web can be" I have created flash coverflows myself. However developing rapid-application-development controls puts some constrains. We can create a very customizable coverflow but after all the idea of rad is to drag-drop the control, click some properties in the designer and let it be.

    Anyway I hope we will be able to make it more customizable in future :)

    Kind regards,
