    I have a lightbox setup with an ItemTemplate, I am displaying html text (not images like the data binding examples).  I have an label inside my ItemTemplate that I want to bind the lightbox control to a list of strings and show the string inside of the label.  I tried <%# Eval("mypropname")%> inside of the label but get a "Value of type 'System.Web.UI.Control' cannot be converted to 'Telerik.Web.UI.RadLightBoxItem'.

    All of the Data* properties exposed server side appear to be specific to displaying images in lightbox.  Is there a way to databind a lightbox with a custom item template to a list of strings?  If not, is there a way to manually add these items to the lightbox server side?

    Hi Chad,

    I have already answered your support ticket and I will quoted my answer here if anybody else have a similar requirement.

    "The only possible solution is to add the template programmatically into your code behind. For this purpose you have to create a class which inherits ITemplate interface. For your convenience I prepared a small sample and attached it to this thread."
