Hi,

Is there any way to let the rotator size itself according to its contents (images in particular)? I populate the rotator with asp:Images, but if (item)height/(item)width are not specified it just defaults to 200x200 pixels regardless of the image size.

Regards,
Sjur

Hello Sjur,

Currently it is not possible to dynamically resize the RadRotator control according to its content because it will not be able to automatically calculate the number of items to show at once and how long the scroll should be. In order to get a better appearance you should set the same size for the height and the width of all the items.

All the best,

It seems to me that for a vertical rotator, the width does not matter, and for a horizontal rotator, the height should not matter with respect to calculating the number of items.

Therefore, when the rotator is configured for horizontal rotating, it should not attempt to set the height if a value has not been specified.

I have set the height to ' ' (space character) in order to avoid the default height.  But I am having problems where Internet Explorer periodically sets an incorrect initial height for the radcontrol's container div when the page initially renders.  Then the Radcontrol's scripts come along and set that height in stone, and the divs/tables/etc. no longer size dynamically according to the contents.

I am using RadRotator.Net2 version 2.6.1.  Has this behavior been fixed in subsequent versions?

Hi Philip,

The RadRotator control needs to know the Items' size (width and height), when it is loaded, in order to determine where an item starts or ends. In the RadRotator's declaration I suggest you specify appropriate values to the Width and Height (in pixels) properties according to the items' size. Those properties are important and you need them in order to make the RadRotator control works properly.
In case that the suggested solution did not work, please open a new support ticket and send us your project. We will check it and do our best to provide a solution.

I think you missed the point of my previous post.  For a horizontal scroller, it should not matter what the height is.  The number of items displayed is based solely on width.

Please explain why the height would have to be specified for a horizontal scroller.

Hello Philip,

Yes you are right - in a horizontal mode the Width and ItemHeight properties are used in order to determine where an item starts or ends. Please note that, however, when you did not specify the Height and ItemHeight properties, then there are potential size issues with inline elements, that are placed inside the Rotator's ItemTemplate. Once again, I recommend you set all of the dimension properties of the RadRotator control in order to avoid any undesired behavior.

All the best,

Hello Nico,

The RadRotator control does not support percentage resize of the content that is inside the ItemTemplate. The control works with fixed size of the items and does not support values in percent set to the Width, ItemWidth, Height, ItemHeight properties.

I hope this helps.

All the best,
