    I'm using the Silverlight CoverFlow and need a control with the same behavior in WPF. So I've tried the RadCarousel. In the sample application is a CoverFlow example but the RadCarouselPanel has no ItemSource, which I need to bind my items. (By the way: It is not possible to select the last item without the scrollbar!). I've also tried to use the RadCarousel with an ItemsTemplate but I always have a border around the cover. And I'm also getting a NullReferenceException when I select an item with the mouse.

    Can you please provide me an example for a carousel with coverflow behavior and binding?
    I'm using the Q3 SP2 release.

    Hello Sternico,

    I am sending you a sample project that demonstrates how to configure RadCarousel to look like a coverflow. Basically I have copied the RadCarouselPanel definition from our Coverflow example of RadCarouselPanel and I have used it as ItemsPanel for RadCarousel. Depending on your data, it might be required to turn off the automatic generation of data presenters by setting the AutogenerateDataPresenters to false.

    Hope this helps.

    Hello Sternico,

    Thank you for writing.

    RadCarousel for WinForms behaves in a different way, because it can animate only Location, Opacity and Scale of elements. You can try to adjust the carousel path to achieve a Coverflow-like behavior using Carousel Path property. The Carousel's Items location depends only on the carousel path, so if an item appears on the left instead of on the right, you should edit the path points (e.g. path points should be in opposite direction). You can play with the attached project and adjust Carousel Path property regarding the size of your items. I would like to suggest you to take a look at our RadCarouselControl help article and its methods and properties. You can also refer to the help articles for Carousel Path.
    Please refer to the attached sample project.

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
