    Hi
    Following is my code to show the RSS feed inside a rotator which i copied from your example. (http://localhost/telerik/r.a.d.controlsQ3_2006_NET2/Rotator/Examples/Functionality/Default/DefaultCS.aspx)

    I am using a dataset as the datasource to display the read rss feed. Everything is working fine. My question is how can I make the Title of the feed that is being displayed by the Ticker as hyperlink, so that when user clicks on it, it displays the full story.

    <radR:RadRotator ID="RadRotator1" runat="server" ScrollDirection="right" DataMember="item"
                Width="700" Height="25" FrameTimeout="5000"  >
                <FrameTemplate>
                    <table>
                        <tr>
                            <td style="color: Red; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px;">
                                Latest News :
                            </td>
                            <td>
                                <div style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; color: #798048;">
                                    <radR:RadTicker ID="ticker1" runat="server"  TickSpeed ="85" >
                                   
                                   <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "title") %>
                                    </radR:RadTicker>
                                </div>
                                </div>
                            </td>
                        </tr>
                    </table>
                </FrameTemplate>
            </radR:RadRotator>

    thanks

    Hey Mitesh,

    You might get better responses posting in the regular RadControls for ASP.Net forum, I just spent ten minutes trying to find documentation on ticker in ASP.Net Ajax and eventually discovered it was only in the regular suite. :)

    But taking a stab in the dark, does this example (the aspx page mainly) help at all?

    RSS feed with RadRotator

    It shows them using one of the fields in an link tag, would a similar syntax work for what you need?

    Let me know, as I normally only use the Ajax controls suite and am curious if this works for you. :)

    Hi Serrin,
    Thank you for your promt reply.

    Basically what i am trying to achieve is read the feed  and constantly display it rotating either from left or right, something like Marquee control in html but the text needs to be hyperlinked.

    Is that possible?

    Hey Mitesh,

    I think it *should* be possible, but I can't find any links to download a trial of the regular ASP.Net version of RadControls (non AJAX) so I can't mess around with the control to see if I can figure it out.  Sorry. :(

    Hi
    I am trying to achieve multiple scrollers as shown in our example, but our source is rss feed.
    http://demos.telerik.com/ASPNET/Prometheus/Rotator/Examples/MultipleScroller/DefaultCS.aspx

    Is it possible to achieve this by any RAD controls of any version.

    Hey Mitesh,

    Would this forum post/solution from Rumen help you at all?

    Binding to RSS feed

    Looks like he explains how to take a RSS feed and turn it into a dataset which you can then use in the rotator...  So my guess (?) is to use two rotators, each one getting a dataset?

    I dont have any problems in getting feed, my only issue is i need RAD controls or any control to display it continously in a like share price ticker.

    Is it possible to achieve this without using this version of the control (r.a.d.controlsQ3_2006_NET2) and using the new version which is used int the demo of multiple scrollers.

    If we can display the 2 different rss feed as it is shown in that example in 2 different scrollers then we will buy that version of RAD Rotator specifically for this purpose.

    Hello Mitesh,

    Currently RadRotator for ASP.NET AJAX does not support the ticker feature - it will be included in one of the following updates.
