    I try to add a CoverFlow to a grid at runtime.
    In the Coverflow Images should be shown.
    ItemsSource of the CoverFlow is connected to a collection of objects that have a ImageURL property.
    ImageURL value is for instance "/Images/nature1.png"
    Images are stored in "ClientBin/Images"

    CoverFlow = new RadCoverFlow(){ReflectionStartAlpha=100,  
                                   ReflectionRelativeHeight = 0.3,  
                                   CameraY = -120,  
                                   ItemMaxHeight = 140,  
                                   Height = 200 };  
    CoverFlow.DisplayMemberPath = "ImageUrl";  
    AntwoordCoverFlow.ItemsSource = ImageCollection; 

    If I run the application only the ImageURL is shown as text in the CoverFlow.
    In the Q2 version I had no problem.
    Is an item template mandatory for the items in the CoverFlow in Q3? If yes how can I assign it in code behind. I don't have a XAML file.

    Hi Henk,

    Infortunately setting ItemTemplate is mandatory at this time. You could set it from code-behind using XamlReader (in Silverlight you cannot create DataTemplate purely with code) and the string representation of the template XAML. For example:

    string data = @"<DataTemplate xmlns="""" xmlns:x=""""><Image Source=""{Binding ImageUrl}"" /></DataTemplate>";

    DataTemplate template = (DataTemplate)XamlReader.Load(data);

    Best wishes,
