Hi, 

I've used radrotator to display some products. Below is the code sample, there are current two problems I'm facing (as listed below)

I'm showing the product description when either user selects the radrotatoritem or when user clicks on the ControlButtons.

1)If I toggle between either of this option I get an error (error screenshot attached)
2)If I toggle between either of this option the product description is shown incorrectly for  a product which i've not selected at all. This happens when i toggle between the ControlButtons and clicking on the products themselves.
3) Sometimes I get this error like the below one

A]System.Collections.Generic.List`1[SelectProducts+fileInfo] cannot be cast to [B]System.Collections.Generic.List`1[SelectProducts+fileInfo]. Type A originates from 'mscorlib, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' in the context 'LoadNeither' at location 'C:\Windows\assembly\GAC_32\mscorlib\2.0.0.0__b77a5c561934e089\mscorlib.dll'. Type B originates from 'mscorlib, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' in the context 'LoadNeither' at location 'C:\Windows\assembly\GAC_32\mscorlib\2.0.0.0__b77a5c561934e089\mscorlib.dll'.

Could you please help me resolve these issues? Thanks

Hi Meghanath,

I tried to reproduce the described problems, using your sample code, but to no avail. You can find attached my test project. Please compare it with your actual project and check if there are differences in the setup or if I have missed something.

Note that at the current state of affairs I am mostly guessing as to what your setup is. If you are still experiencing difficulties please try modifying the attached sample so that the problem is reproducible or  prepare and send us a sample, runnable project that displays your issue so that we can examine it locally and provide a more to the point answer.

Kind regards,
Slav
