Hi everyone,

I'm hoping someone may know how to do this.

I took the jewelry sample from the demo site and customized it slightly so that I could have it work with my demo. Nothing major at all, just size and placement.

But I was wondering about, depending on a value within the XML, if I could switch the side of the screen that it appears on?

So I set up the ticker to display on both the left and right side, no issues, they both behave exactly the same.

What I was hoping is that I could set the visible property for the ticker based on an entry in the xml data file.

Here's what I was hoping to do:

<

 

 

telerik:RadTicker ID="RadTicker2" runat="server">

 

 

 

<Items>

 

 

 

<telerik:RadTickerItem Text='<%# XPath("Title")%>' Visible='<%# XPath("LeftSideVisible")%>></telerik:RadTickerItem>

 

 

 

</Items>

 

 

 

</telerik:RadTicker>

And my xml entry looks like this:

 

<

 

 

NewsItem>

 

<

 

 

Title>

 

 

 

 

 

This option shows what it would look like if the left of the image was blank (for demo purposes)

 

 

 

</

 

 

Title>

 

<

 

 

Image>Images/Testing/Splash-Test-1.jpg</Image>

 

<

 

 

ItemName>Images/Testing/Splash-Test-1.jpg</ItemName>

 

<

 

 

URLIcon>Images/Testing/demo-info.png</URLIcon>

 

<

 

 

URL>~/AboutUs.aspx</URL>

 

<

 

 

bool name="LeftSideVisible">true</bool>

 

<

 

 

bool name="RightSideVisible">false</bool>

 

</

 

 

NewsItem>

 



But when I do this I a type mismatch thrown by the ticker.

Any ideas as to how I can do this? I'm open to any suggestions :)

Thanks,
Jon
