    RadRotator and RadMenu for ASP.NET AJAX: Building an Interactive Menu Together

    It’s always cool to see how the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX work together. Today I saw a question from a customer asking if the RadRotator can be used to create a menu similar to that on the Experts Exchange web site. If you’re unfamiliar with their menu, it’s got a lot of options in it. Because there are so many menu choices they decided to make the menu interactive, adding a button to the right-hand side of the menu which, when clicked, replaces the existing menu options with another set. Using this approach means you no longer have to be concerned about having...

    Paying Homage to the RadRotator for ASP.NET

    The RadRotator is a control that is easily overlooked in the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX suite. It is not one of the more compelling controls like the RadGrid or the RadEditor, but it certainly provides a key set of functionality that is important in order for Telerik to claim that our suite is the most complete ASP.NET AJAX suite on the market.

    Last week we got an interesting request from a customer of ours – he wanted to add several RadCharts in the RadRotator control and to implement custom slideshow. The idea was so appealing that I decided to shoot a quick blog about it. We already have similar image slideshows and I must say it is a pretty cool way to give your WinForms app a modern style and appeal: Even though it is very easy to add RadChart directly to the rotator (by using RadHostItem), RadRotator performs much better with images and/or other windowless RadItems. This is why...

    RadRotator for ASP.NET AJAX: Using dynamic templates

    My colleague Todd Anglin has already written a post about how to create a rotator control dynamically - you can read it here - How to Create RadRotator Programmatically. Unfortunately, this code in that post is for the old RadRotator control and if you try to use it in the new ASP.NET AJAX version, you will notice that it will not compile. Fortunately, you can quickly fix that. Here is what you need to change: FrameTemplate - this property has been replaced with ItemTemplate RadRotatorFrame - this object has been replaced with RadRotatorItem After you update the above names, you should be able...
