I have tried this scenario and it is working fine with me. I have found a problem related to buttons in the rotator in modern browsers that use SVG. It is logged and it will be researched. You can monitor it in this URL
. If your rotator's type does not include buttons there shouldn't be issues. I am attaching here my test page that works correctly. To run it you need the Telerik database from our online demos and the appropriate connection string. The page I am attaching also includes a temporary fix for newer browsers so that buttons can be used.
