    Hi all,

    I tried Q3 2008 but backed up to Q2 due to bugs in RadRotator as per other forum posts.  I am wondering if this is another bug or I am just using the tool incorrectly...

    I set WrapFrames to false using essentially the photo gallery demo on the live site's code to scroll through a series of photos.  When I hover over the right button the items move to the left.  When I reach the end of my items I keep scrolling, but the LEFT button is disabled and I cannot scroll left.  I can continue scrolling right (as in photo's move to the left, and new photo's come into view from the right).

    Is this a bug (whether it be the same as discussed in another recent thread or a new bug) or am I doing something wrong?

    Thx,
    Rob

    Hello Robin,

    I think there is a bug with the buttons mode of the Rotator. I was able to reproduce it and I think that it will not be a problem to resolve it and send you a custom hotfix build. If you want the custom build, just open a formal support ticket. If this is not a serious issue for your application, you can wait until the next service pack release, which will also include the fix.

    All the best,

    What is the expected time to release the next service pack?    It is not crucial that I implement that feature for right now, so as long as the release is in the near future I wouldn't bother with a special build. 

    Related to the Rotator... can i ask if there is a standard way client side and server side to set the first item visible in the rotator?   I have 40 images (e.g.) and 4 per page.  When I am about 1/2 way through the images and click on one, I want it to show in the main area of my gallery page.  The problem is, when I do this with a server call-back, the rotator resets to the first image it seems.  I can get the index of the selected item and set that to be the first, but if it was the 4th image, the shfiting of the visible items in the rotator seems odd from a user's perspective.  My thought for features are (and forgive me if they exist and I do not know of them)...

    1. Add client-side event for clicking on an item that returns the item DOM or something of that nature.  So I can browse it to my image and use that img.src, img.alt, img.width, img.height etc. to populate another image tag all in client-side.

    2. Ability client side and server side for finding both number of items visible and first item visible.  Specifically so that when an OnItemClick event is raised server side, I can control what images are visible.

    Thanks!
    Rob

    Hi Rob,

    There is no set date for the next service pack but I expect that it will be at the beginning of January.

    As for your question - we have an example of this scenario in our online demos: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/Rotator/Examples/Gallery/DefaultCS.aspx
    When you click a rotator item, you can get its index and make an Ajax request and update only the part of the page you need (the main area). The rotator is not updated so it does not reset.
