Hi, I want the selected item to be controlled in my code only, not by the user clicking on items (e.g. as in a slide show). This can, of course, be accomplished by clearing IsHitTestVisible or IsEnabled on the entire CoverFlow control. But in the Content of each item I have an interactive UserControl which I want to be enabled for the selected item. If the CoverFlow's IsHitTestVisible is false, then the contained UserControl's also do not receive mouse events.

How can I disable interactive CoverFlow navigation while enabling user inputs on the UserControls in the item Content?

Hi,

I have created an example project that handles input that may navigate the RadCoverFlow and a clear style for the RadCoverFlowItems. The buttons in the RadCoverFlowItems can now be clicked while navigation is disabled.

If you have further questions please do not hesitate to contact us again.

Hi Pana,

Thank-you for the example project; this is useful! My next question is, how can I assign mouse-event handlers for the RadCoverFlowItem's if my RadCoverFlow gets the items via ItemsSource binding? Would this be done in the Style for the ItemContainer?

regards,

Hi,

You can put Images or Buttons in the RadCoverFlowItems and handle their Click or LeftMouseButtonDown events. As the RadCoverFlowItems themselves are fully transparent and handle the events I don't think you will be able to get the same events working for you.

Hi Pana,

Thanks for your response. Meanwhile I was beginning to figure as much and I have implemented a workaround. Has the telerik team considered making the collection of RadCoverFlowItems available to the caller e.g. as a property of RadCoverFlow?

Hi,

The RadCoverFlow is no different than any other ItemsControl so I do not think we will add such property. We will not implement other properties than the Items and ItemsSource.
