I have a rotator that works in IE and Firefox but doesn't rotate in Chrome. The rotator just sits on the same frame.

<telerik:RadRotator ID="rrWebSponsors" runat="server" ContentFile="sponsors/sponsors.xml" FrameTimeout="6000" TransitionType="Slideshow" FrameDuration="10000" PauseOnMouseOver="true" Height="125px" Width="125px" UseRandomSlide="true">
<ItemTemplate>
<a href='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "url") %>' target='_blank'>
<img src='sponsors/<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "filename") %>' alt=''  style='border: 0px;' /></a>
</ItemTemplate>
</telerik:RadRotator>

Hello Darren,

Some of the properties that can be examined in your setup are not available in the RadRotator:
 - ContentFile;
 - FrameTimeout;
 - TransitionType;
 - UseRandomSlide;

Please ensure that you are indeed using the RadRotator for ASP.NET AJAX and that you have not introduced modifications to the control that are affecting its functionality.

You can check the properties of the control in this help article. Examining the article How to configure RadRotator is also recommended as the rotator has some properties that need to be set in order for the control to behave consistently in the different browsers.

Hi, I altered my code to the latest methods and it still does not auto advance in chrome - just IE, Firefox etc...

<telerik:RadRotator ID="rrWebSponsors" runat="server"
                                        SlideShowAnimation-Type="CrossFade" FrameDuration="10000"
                                        Height="125px" Width="125px" RotatorType="AutomaticAdvance" WrapFrames="true">
                                        <ItemTemplate>
                                            <a href='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "url") %>' target='_blank'>
                                                <img src='sponsors/<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "filename") %>' alt=''
                                                    style='border: 0px;' /></a>
                                        </ItemTemplate>
                                    </telerik:RadRotator>


Dim ds As New Data.DataSet
ds.ReadXml(Server.MapPath("~/sponsors/sponsors.xml"))
'get a pointer to the table, and add a column for random numbers
Dim table As Data.DataTable = ds.Tables(0)
table.Columns.Add("Random", GetType(Double))
'create a new random number generator
Dim random As New Random
'add a random number to each row
For Each row As Data.DataRow In table.Rows
    row("Random") = random.NextDouble
Next
table.DefaultView.Sort = "Random ASC"
rrWebSponsors.DataSource = (table.DefaultView)
rrWebSponsors.DataBind()

Hello Darren,

Please check the help article How to configure RadRotator, which was included in my previous post. It contains information that will help you configure the control correctly. For example, the properties ItemWidth and ItemHeight should be set to ensure that the rotator will behave consistently in the different browsers, so you need to add them in your setup.

The property SlideShowAnimation takes effect only when the rotator type is set to SlideShow or SlideShowButtons.

If you are still having difficulties after examining the information above, please send a simple, fully runnable sample that isolates your setup so that I can inspect it locally and suggest a concrete solution.

It started working in Chrome when I added in the ItemWidth and ItemHeight. Thanks!
