    I want a solution for my SilverLight application. I am creating a MultiVideoPlayer, where i am using RadCoverFlow and TelrikMediaPlayers. Here in RadCoverFlow the images can be visible in horizontal orientation. How can i put these in vertical or any other user defined orientation.Or how can we write  a userdefined templete to solve this problem.

    Hi kalyan,

    At this time it is not possible to arrange the images vertically. We are planning to accomplish that task, but we cannot give you any time freme for now. If you mean something else, please let us know.

    Hi kalyan,

    If you mean to customize it to work vertically, it is not possible yet. We will consider this feature for development in one of the next major releases of the control. Unfortunately we cannot provide a specific date when this will happen.

    and Image name under the image.

    Can I do this on ItemTemplate ? If yes, How ? Following link is only telling about scrolbar.
    If no, when can I ?

    Hi ankit,

    You can put a label under the image and border around it. However, none of them can be included in the perspective transformation. I'm attaching an example of how to put a label under the image.

    Hope that helps.

    Miroslav,

    Thanks.
    That's exactly what I am looking for.
    Hope, future versions might be able to provide transition on Label.

    How do you attach mouse events to the RadCoverFlow elements. Sorry, this may be a trivial question, but I'm new to Silverlight/C#

    Hi Silly,

    The easiest way is to put RadCoverflowPerspectiveItems and to handle their mouse events. To put an image in RadCoverflowPerspectiveItem you need to set Image, Uri or a string that represents an uri as its content. Hope this helps!

    Kind regards,

    Hi Alexis,

    RadCoverFlow control does not support this feature at this stage. We are sorry for the inconvenience that this may causes to you.

    We will try to implement it for future versions of the control.

    Your Telerik points have been updated for your involvement.

    Hi,

    Since this post is already a while ago, I wondered if there is already a solution for the vertical scrolling?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Hans,

    The CoverFlow controls doesn't support vertical arrangement of the items yet. You could apply RenderTransformation to rotate the CoverFlow control but we have no guarantee that it will work properly.

    Miroslav ,
    Don't you see the limitations of RadCoverflow Control. I have seen some issues regarding ZoomingIn/Out the items, rotating the items.
    Really these functionalities can't be applied with RadCoverFlow ( as per my own knowledge. I am not sure if i am correct. But at my end i am correct) . It is limited with  only images, where it could have been used with Videos also. How can it be used in a application where requirements are much more .It can only be used as a Multiviewer  I think telerik should think about these issues.

    Thanks

    Kalyan

    Hi kalyan,

    You are right - the CoverFlow control have its limitations. This is the reason why we are working on new version of the CoverFlow control that will support any visual elements as content and will have more features. The limitations of the old one comes from limitations of Silverlight 2.

    Hope the absence of this functionality is not a major showstopper for you.

    Hello Phil,

    You can easily make your CoverFlow vertical by setting Orientation= Vertical. We added such functionality in the summer. For reference you can check the bottom option in this example: http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#CoverFlow/Configurator.

    Don't hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.

    Hi Saru,

    Yes, you can make the CoverFlow control display charts. The CoverFlow control acts like a ListBox so you may use the same approaches:
    - Add charts as items
    - Use chart in the ItemTemplate
    - Use chart as part of the ControlTemplate of the CoverFlowItem

    You could refer to the following article for the ListBox control - http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/pages/silverlight-tutorial-part-5-using-the-listbox-and-databinding-to-display-list-data.aspx.

    Hope this helps.
