    I'm currently using your SlideView control - I downloaded the latest 2012 Q1 version, but it doesn't seem to have the IsZoomedIn property anymore, or the SelectedIndex property. Is there a reason for omitting these properties, as they were useful in development.

    Hi Thomas,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The initial version of RadSlideView was actually an extended RadLoopingList and the IsZoomedOut property came out as a functionality from the base class. The same was with the SelectedIndex property.

    As it turned out from the feedback we gathered, RadLoopingList would not fit all the scenarios so we decided to redesign the control's architecture. It is now more like our RadDataBoundListBox - it has its own ItemsSource property plus much more new ones like TransitionMode - Slide vs. Flip, AdjacentItemsPreviewMode, etc. The SelectedIndex property is replaced by the SelectedItem one. You can easily find the selected index by using the IndexOf method of your items source. E.g.:

    int selectedIndex = myCollection.IndexOf(this.radSlideView1.SelectedItem);

    The IsZoomedOut property does not have an equivalent yet but we will consider whether it is worthy implementing it according to our users' feedback.

    More information about all the new changes as well as the updated documentation may be found here:

    I would like to thank you for your time and feedback - it is much appreciated. Do not hesitate to write us back should you have other questions/problems with our tools.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team

    Thanks for the response! After refactoring my code to work with the new SlideView, I do actually like the current system better. Keep up the good work!

    Great, thanks. Was trying to figure out how to set the selectedindex of a slideview. This post helped immensely.
