I tried to implement your code, however, the rotator behaved weirdly and things didn't go the way I asked about. I want to be able to use the Fade effect from code, at the same time I want the rotator to start automatically, to move to next and previous items, as well as pausing the rotator. On the other hand, I'm looking to control the rotator frames show by a set of numbered buttons, what ever button u press the frame the correspondent frame shall show. Please let me know if such a thing is not applicable, other wise I would appreciate providing complete code. Unless I shall go and open a ticket asking for help on that!
