    Hello Gustavo,

    The RadRotator demo you linked is configured to work with the exact XML structure that is shown when you click the presentation.xml tab in the demo. If you change the structure of the XML, you will have to update the ItemTemplate of the rotator with the names of the new XML nodes to ensure that the rotator will keep functioning.

    If you are not sure how to do this, I will need a fully runnable sample that shows how you implemented the rotator with the changed data source so that I can help you apply it.

    Hi Gustavo,

    The RadRotator control can be data bound to a XmlDataSource and the XmlDataSource can present the data from an .xml to a data bound control, however it is up to you to make use of this data and to present it in a meaningful way. The .xml file that is generated by PowerPoint is quite complex and it will be difficult to interpret the information it contains. Note that the Slide Show demo you linked resembles a MS PowerPoint and it does not use an actual .xml generated from PowerPoint.

    One way to make a similar example as the one shown in the demo is to create an .xml with simple structure that contains the needed texts and can be easily used with the XmlDataSource.

    Another approach that might allow you achieve the desired result is to find a way to embed the PowerPoint slides on the page and then place them in the ItemTemplate of the rotator like various content is placed in the item template in the following demo: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/rotator/examples/richcontent/defaultcs.aspx
