    I get an error when calling set_rotatorType (using some code in an example post here):




    null is null or not an object.

    I have the code in a RadCodeBlock and call the script from an onload on the body tag.  I'm using a RadScriptManager.  Do I need to include a path to some javascript files or something?

    Hi Samantha,

    You are working in an ASP.NET AJAX environment and in AJAX, all ASP.NET AJAX controls, including RadControls are created after the page is loaded - you can check that by examining the HTML dump.
    What happens is that when you try to execute the script on page's load, RadRotator will still not be rendered on the page which will cause the error.
    To avoid the problem, you should call the script on a later stage - for example in ASP.NET AJAX's generic pageLoad() function - it is called when all the controls are loaded
    function pageLoad()
      //your code here

    I hope this helps.
