    Hello atik,

    Instead of using the Image control, you would need to use the RadBinaryImage control in your ItemTemplate, if you're loading the images from the database.

    <telerik:RadRotator ID="RadRotator1" runat="server" Width="810px" ItemWidth="300"
                    Height="350px" ItemHeight="220" ScrollDuration="500" FrameDuration="2000"
                    PauseOnMouseOver="false" RotatorType="CarouselButtons" OnClientItemClicked="OnClientItemClicked">
                    <ItemTemplate>
                        <telerik:RadBinaryImage ID="Image1" runat="server" DataValue='<%# Eval("ImageColumn") %>' />
                    </ItemTemplate>
                </telerik:RadRotator>

    I hope that helps.

    thank you for your feedback.

    i can't seen image for the slide show. the   RadRotator1.DataSource = GetAllProductName();
    can't display the images. where i am wrong i can't find out. this is my code.

    UI aspx:

    <telerik:RadRotator ID="RadRotator1" runat="server" Width="810px" ItemWidth="300"
                    Height="350px" ItemHeight="220" ScrollDuration="500" FrameDuration="2000"
                    PauseOnMouseOver="false" RotatorType="CarouselButtons" OnClientItemClicked="OnClientItemClicked">
                    <ItemTemplate>
                        <telerik:RadBinaryImage ID="Image1" runat="server" DataValue='<%# Eval("Photo") %>' />
                    </ItemTemplate>
                </telerik:RadRotator>

    hare i am use LINQ for data.

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        LoadSlide();
    }
     
    private void LoadSlide()
    {
      RadRotator1.DataSource = GetAllProductName();
    }
     
    public List<BasicInfo> GetAllProductName()
    {
        IECLDataContexDataContext dataContexObj = new IECLDataContexDataContext();
        List<BasicInfo> products = new List<BasicInfo>();
        foreach (var p in (from j in dataContexObj.NEW_PROJECT_INFOs select new { j.PROJECT_PHOTO}).Distinct())
        {
            BasicInfo aProduct = new BasicInfo();
            aProduct.Photo = p.PROJECT_PHOTO;
            products.Add(aProduct);
        }
        return products;
    }



    and my class:

    public class BasicInfo
       {
           public Binary Photo { get; set; }
     
     
       }


    Thank you in advance.

    Hello atik,

    Try changing you Binary property into a Byte[] array. Then in your GetAllProductName, call the ToArray() method on your PROJECT_PHOTO column.

    So it would look something like this:

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        LoadSlide();
    }
       
    private void LoadSlide()
    {
      RadRotator1.DataSource = GetAllProductName();
    }
       
    public List<BasicInfo> GetAllProductName()
    {
        IECLDataContexDataContext dataContexObj = new IECLDataContexDataContext();
        List<BasicInfo> products = new List<BasicInfo>();
        foreach (var p in (from j in dataContexObj.NEW_PROJECT_INFOs select new { j.PROJECT_PHOTO}).Distinct())
        {
            BasicInfo aProduct = new BasicInfo();
            aProduct.Photo = p.PROJECT_PHOTO.ToArray();
            products.Add(aProduct);
        }
        return products;
    }

    The class:

    public class BasicInfo
       {
           public Byte[] Photo { get; set; }
       
       
       }

    I hope that helps.

     it is not working.
     RadRotator1.DataSource = GetAllProductName();

     RadRotator1 can get data from the list  but can't display.

     i have attached a screen short.

    Hello Atik,

    I have prepared a sample project that implements a possible approach for populating a RadRotator with images from a database. As Kevin suggested, since the images are stored in your database you can configure a ItemTemplate in the rotator control and you can display the images via a RadBinaryImage.

    I am trying to add one small feature. I would like to add a OnClientItemClicked="openWindow" to the RadRotator control so when a photo is clicked a user can open a popup window passing the CustomerId (from the CustomerPhotos table) in the querystring to the new window.

    So I add the following code to your sample right below the RadScriptManager:

    <telerik:RadWindowManager ID="theWindowManager" runat="server" Width="600" Height="400" />
    <script type="text/javascript">
         function openWindow(rotator, args) {
             var windowManager = GetRadWindowManager();
             var extItem = $telerik.$(args.get_item().get_element()).find("[CustomerId]");
             alert(extItem);
             //windowManager.open(extItem.data("????"), "sites");
            }
    </script>

    The problem I am having is how to find the CustomerId for the photo that was clicked? I would like to pass the CustomerId in a querystring to a CustomerDetails.aspx page where I can display other Customer related information.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions you might have.

    Hi David,

    You can add a custom attribute to the RadBinaryImage tag, which will store the CustomerID of the currently displayed item. When an item of  RadRotator is clicked, you can get the value of this attribute via the attr jQuery method. The suggested approach is demonstrated in the following code sample:
    <div>
        <telerik:RadRotator ID="RadRotator1" runat="server" Width="810px" ItemWidth="180"
            Height="350px" ItemHeight="220" ScrollDuration="500" FrameDuration="2000" PauseOnMouseOver="false"
            RotatorType="CarouselButtons" DataSourceID="Sqldatasource1" OnClientItemClicked="openWindow">
            <ItemTemplate>
                <telerik:RadBinaryImage ID="Image1" runat="server" DataValue='<%# Eval("Photo") %>' CustomerId='<%# Eval("CustomerID") %>' />
            </ItemTemplate>
        </telerik:RadRotator>
        <asp:SqlDataSource ID="Sqldatasource1" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:TelerikConnectionString %>"
            SelectCommand="SELECT TOP 5 * FROM [CustomerPhotos]" />
        <telerik:RadWindowManager ID="theWindowManager" runat="server" Width="600" Height="400" />
        <script type="text/javascript">
            function openWindow(rotator, args) {
                var windowManager = GetRadWindowManager();
                var extItem = $telerik.$(args.get_item().get_element()).find("[CustomerId]");
                windowManager.open("CustomerDetails.aspx?CustomerID=" + extItem.attr("CustomerId"), "sites");
            }
        </script>
    </div>

    Thanks for all your help. This example now dose pretty much what I was wanting to do.

    I have one more request. In this scenario I have added the ContactName to the RadRotator and in the CustomerDetails.aspx I allow the user to update the ContactName. When the user closes the window the OnClientClose event is called.

    From the OnClientClose event I would like to issue a command to refresh the RadRotator portion of the page. My attempt below was to find the rotator control and rebind it, however this causes an error stating the object does not support DataBind.

    Thanks again for all your expertise and any suggestions you might have.

    Dave

    Hi David,

    Please note that the RadRotator should be rebound on the server, so if you want to refresh only its portion of the page, you can use an Ajax request. This can be achieved by triggering Ajax request and updating just the RadRotator via a RadAjaxManager control. For your convenience I have attached a sample page that demonstrates this approach. Please use it as a reference for implementing this functionality into your actual project.

    All the best,

    This is working great! I have a RadRotator when a item is clicked it is displayed in a Radwindow where changes to the item can be made. When the window closes the RadRotator is refreshed.

    Now I have one more challenge. I would like to do this in the MasterPage / ContentPage scenario where the RadRotator is on the ContentPage and will be refreshed. I think the recommend approach is to put RadAjaxManager on the MasterPage and then a RadAjaxManagerProxy  on the ContentPage.I am having trouble hooking up OnAjaxRequest from the RadAjaxManagerProxy. 

     My question - is this scenario workable? If so any hints or suggestions on setting things up will be most appreciated.

    Hello David,

    Note that RadAjaxManagerProxy is designed only to ease the design-time configuration. If you want to force an Ajax request, you should get the RadAjaxManager instance in the Master page through the GetCurrent static method, as shown in this help article. Once this is done, you can handle the event AjaxRequest in order to execute your logic.

    I hope this helps. Feel free to contact us again if you encounter more difficulties.

    I think I finally got this working the way I want. I have a masterpage/contentpage scenario where the content page has the RadRotator. When a image is selected from the rotator a page is popped open in a RadWindow where the user can edit details displayed in the rotator. When the RadWindow is closed the RadRotator is updated with ajax. Here is my approach.

    I used the database as found in the RadRotatorRebinding.zip project listed previously. Also check your web.config to be sure your TelerikConnectionString has been set.

    Web.Config
    ...
    <
    configuration>
      <connectionStrings>
        <add name="TelerikConnectionString" connectionString="Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|Telerik.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
      </connectionStrings>
    ...

    Here is the MasterPage.Master
    <%@ Master Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="MasterPage.master.cs" Inherits="MasterPage" %>
     
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

        <asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="head" runat="server" />

            <asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="ContentPlaceHolder1" runat="server" />
        </div>
        </form>
    </body>
    </html>

    There is not codebehind for the masterpage.
