After the RadRotator is initially data bound, changing the XML file that populates the control will not affect its items. You need to rebind the rotator control in order to display the new data. Note that doing so will restart the scrolling of the items.
Another approach that will allow you to modify the items dynamically is to use the client-side API of RadRotator and more specifically the methods, listed in the online demo Rotator / Client-side Items Management
. Via these methods you can remove items with outdated information and insert new ones. The data for the items can be retrieved via Ajax requests.
