    We like the way this tool functions for a image gallery:
    http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/rotator/examples/gallery/defaultcs.aspx

    However, we would prefer something more like this:
    http://www.simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/examples/hires/

    We have figured out how to do most of this except with the rotator it appears that we are bound to using either a vertical column or a horizontal row. We would like to have both rows and columns although just have it rotate one way. So we would like to have say a 6 x 6 grid, then we rotate the entire grid up and down. Is this possible with the rotator and if not is there another telerik tool that could handle both columns and rows?

    Thanks,

    Hi Patrick
    I'm looking to do something like you. I've been using http://www.dnzone.com/go?3570 but it has some limitations and caching issues and not much support.

    I'd be very happy if you could share your exeperiences with rad rotator here.

    Hi Morten,

    You can achieve this behavior by using the RadRotator control. In order to do this you need to implement these steps :
    • Set appropriate size properties. Please note that all of the items should have the same size. I believe that this forum thread will be of help at this step
    • The data source should be configured to serve the data according to the ItemTemplate that is used. For example you can check this forum thread.
    • In your case I recommend you pass the selected image to the JavaScript function that will show the image in the pane on the right (in the provided Flash web site).
    All of these steps are implemented in the demo project attached to the thread.

    I hope this helps.

    All the best,

    Morten,

    I was able to do this. I posted a solution to the AJAX Radrotator section. Once its a live post, I can update this thread with a link to it. Its not exaclty like that version that I pointed out. That one is a little flashier, but this does work and works well.

    Thanks,
