I am trying to bind a rotator control to an xml document (type=System.Xml.XmlDocument) returned by a method using the rotator’s datasource property:

RadRotator1.DataSource = object.GetXML()
RadRotator1.DataBind()



This is xml returned by the above method:

<Participants>
    <Participant>
        <FullName>John Smith</FullName>
        <PayAmount>4611.00</PayAmount>
    </Participant>
</Participants>


And this is the rotator:

                <telerik:RadRotator ID="RadRotator1" runat="server" RotatorType="AutomaticAdvance" FrameDuration="4000" ScrollDirection="Down" ScrollDuration="500" Height="120px" Width="300px">
                    <ItemTemplate>
                        <div>
                            <div><%# XPath("FullName") %></div>
                            <div><%# XPath("PayAmount") %></div>
                        </div>
                    </ItemTemplate>
                </telerik:RadRotator>


The code runs fine, but nothing displays on the page. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for your help.

Ivan

Hi Ivan,

The RadRotator control uses the standard DataBind mechanism and the problem that you experience is not directly related to RadRotator control. This mean that you will experience the same problem using a standard asp:Repeater (for example) as well. For your convenience, however, I have implemented the solution in a demo and attached it to the thread.

I hope this helps.

Sincerely yours,

Hi and thx in avance, in the example before where can i put an hyperlink for each item

like

<Participants>
 <Participant>
  <FullName>John Smith</FullName>
  <PayAmount>4611.00</PayAmount>

                      < hyperlink  ..... >

 </Participant>
</Participants>

I adapted that example for a news rotator, so i want to redirect each news item to a especific page.

thx again

Carlos.

Hi Carlos,

As long as the new (<HyperLink>) node is a child to the <Participant/> node, there is no difference where it will be placed. I modified the XML file in the following way:

<Participant>
    <FullName>John Smith</FullName>
    <PayAmount>4611.00</PayAmount>
    <HyperLink>http://www.google.com/search?q=John<;/HyperLink>
</Participant>

And here is the modified source code of the project:
<%@ Register TagPrefix="telerik" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server">
    </telerik:RadScriptManager>
    <div>
        <telerik:RadRotator ID="RadRotator1" runat="server" RotatorType="AutomaticAdvance"
            FrameDuration="4000" ScrollDirection="Down" ScrollDuration="500" Height="120px"
            ItemHeight="120" Width="300px" ItemWidth="300">
            <ItemTemplate>
                <div>
                    <div>
                        <a href='<%# XPath("HyperLink") %>'>
                            <%# XPath("FullName") %></a></div>
                    <div>
                        <%# XPath("PayAmount") %></div>
                </div>
            </ItemTemplate>
        </telerik:RadRotator>
    </div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

Thx very much Pero, one more question pls, if each item (news in my case) have an id like 

<news>
     <id>notice1<id> 
    ....
     <id>notice2<id> 
<news>

how could i pass that "id" to the child page which porpouse is: shows the enterely news of the selected item, how can i retrieve that "id" in the child page using C#, only i need that value like a "parameter variable", using that i could search the enterely news in another xml file.

Thx very much
Best Regards
Carlos.

Hi Carlos,

I am not quite sure that I understood your scenario. Could you please implement it without RadRotator control (using an asp:Repeater control for example), open a new support ticket and send it to me? I will rework it in order to use RadRotator control and send it back as soon as possible.

Kind regards,
Fiko
