I have a Telerik transition control binding to a custom class, The transition control accepts needs an image as input.  Can you please tell me how can i bind explicitly telling the element name which have the image reference. Itemsource is an attached property. I have included the code below. I tried Path=AdImage but it did not worked.

I was using http://blogs.telerik.com/blogs/posts/11-01-11/how-to-create-ad-rotator-with-telerik-transitioncontrol-and-coverflow-control-for-silverlight.aspx  to create an adrotator control.



<telerik:RadTransitionControl  x:Name="radControl" adRotator:AdRotatorExtensions.ItemChangeDelay="0:0:3" 
 adRotator:AdRotatorExtensions.CurrentSelectedIndex="0"
                              adRotator:AdRotatorExtensions.IndexChanged="{Binding TopItemCommand, Mode=OneWay}"
                              adRotator:AdRotatorExtensions.ItemsSource="{Binding ImagePaths, Mode=OneWay,Path=AdImage}"
 VerticalAlignment="Center" 
 HorizontalAlignment="Center" Width="650">
<telerik:RadTransitionControl.Transition>
<telerik:MotionBlurredZoomTransition />
</telerik:RadTransitionControl.Transition>

</telerik:RadTransitionControl>


 public static readonly DependencyProperty ItemsSourceProperty =
    DependencyProperty.RegisterAttached("ItemsSource", typeof(IEnumerable), typeof(AdRotatorExtensions), new PropertyMetadata(null, OnItemsSourceChanged));
    
    private static void OnItemsSourceChanged(DependencyObject d, DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs e)
