    I have a couple of questions regarding using RadCarousel with RadHostItems:
      1. Is there an option to add a title under a HostItem (as can be done with RadButtonElement : DisplayStyle = DisplayStyle.ImageAndText)
      2. When Carousel HostItems are rotating they do not change their size (becoming smaller as they move away from the view and
          becoming bigger when they move into the view) while other items (like ButtonElement) do change their size.
          Can I make the HostItems change their size as well?

    thank you

    Hello Shachaf,

    Regarding your first question, the purpose of RadHostItem is to wrap a single control and integrate it with the element tree of the desired RadControl. You can solve the issue by using a user control and placing a label inside. 

    In WinForms there is a general limitation: Controls cannot be clipped effectively inside a parent control.
    Host items contain controls and that is why RadCarousel cannot handle them well. I suggest using elements or images instead.
