    Does the Carousel support displaying and data binding of multiple tables , lIke a Customer and Products relationship?

    I can bind a DataTable to the Carousel but how do I Bind at DataSet and the individual tables ?

    Hello Jon,

    While RadCarousel for WPF internally uses the data engine that RadGridView uses, and the data engine supports hierarchical relationships, we have not added that feature for the carousel component. The short answer is no, we do not support that feature.

    We have always looked at RadCarousel as a navigation component, and displaying hierarchical data inside has never been high on our feature list. Can you describe your application scenario, so that I get a better idea of what you are trying to achieve. I am always looking to gain new insight on how customers use our components as that can change our product development direction.

    Thanks for helping us improve our product.

    Sincerely yours,

    Hi...
    I trying to add 'more' data to the carousel... Iike, besides just displaying the Customer's name  - also display the customers orders.
    I'm using the carousel as large window that occupies most of the form - like a large rolodex.
    thanks again

    Hello Jon,

    Thanks for the clarification. I can think of several ways to make this work. I am not sure how that would work performance-wise, but you can host an items control or even RadGridView inside a CarouselItem. Another option is to handle SelectionChanged and update a portion of your UI with different data related to the currently selected item.

    Thanks.. I have the RadGridView in the Carousel.. but can't figure how to bind the 'Orders' to it and have the customer info binded as well... I think I may just use the SelectionCHange and show the 'Orders; in a panel below the Carousel.. thaks again!
