Hi

Is it possible to bind the radrotator to a image libraray we have created in sitefinity.  How do you set the datasource property within sitefinty to point to the library.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Please take a look at the articles of Josh Morales - creating an AJAX News Rotator in Sitefinity (Part 1, Part 2). Since the News items and the Images and Documents items are both based on IContent interface, the approach is the same. The only difference is that you should actually use ImageManager class rather than ContentManager/NewsManager classes.

Let us know if there is anything else we could help you with.

Best wishes,

Can you please let me know that this functionality of Rad Image rotator will also work on Mobile phone too? Pease let me know because we have to develop a website using sitefinity which should be competible to Mobile as well.

Hi Ravishankar Baranwal,

Thank you for the follow up. 
The RadRotator functionality will work on a mobile device, only if the device itself supports javascript. The rotator uses Javascript so it can change the images. 
I suggest you creating a second version of the page without a rotator for the mobile devices.It should be lightweight with minimum graphical elements and script, for easier access and viewing.

Best wishes,
