    Instead of looping through the items in the rotator I'd like to have it come to the end and after displaying the last item rewind back to the beginning, quickly if possible.

    i was able to emulate this as closely as possible by placing a counter on the items and when the last item is displayed I reverse the direction of the rotator and decrease scroll and frame duration to 0, but I don't get the effect I'm looking for. It does rewind, but it pauses slightly between each frame which doesn't give the wanted effect of "sliding" back to the starting position.

    Additionally while I'm here... Is there any way to retreive how many items are in the rotator display window and how tall they are?

    Hi Andrew,

    There is no built-in functionality that will make the rotator "rewind" to its first item, after all items have been displayed. The only way to achieve the desired effect is by using some custom code, and setting the right scroll and frame duration. For example, if you set FrameDuration="0" and ScrollDuration="100", to the rotator in the following demo:, the items will be scrolled very quickly.

    There is no built-in way to retrieve the number of the currently shown items in the rotator's viewport. If the items have fixed dimensions (fixed ItemWidth and ItemHeight), then it is easy to compute how many items are displayed. Otherwise, it is fairly complicated to determine the number of the items in the viewport. The same is true, for the dimensions of the items.
