I'm using the Q3 Rotator to make a slideshow. It has pause/play/left/right buttons. The RotatorType is set to FromCode. The left and right buttons are working as expected. The Play button doesn't want to work, though. Using the startAutoPlay() method advances a single frame, but doesn't start automatic advance. The resume() method does the same thing. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Incidentally, if I set the RotatorType to "AutomaticAdvance", the pause/left/right buttons work as expected. The play button behaves the same way, though, using either the resume() or startAutoPlay() method - it only advances one frame.

Hi Dwertz,

When the property RotatorType is set to "FromCode", the behavior of the control is fully controlled by code, including the AutoPlay functionality - that is why it is not working as expected in your scenario. 

If you want to keep this setting, but still have the AutoPlay feature, you must change the rotator type by using its client-side API and then to call startAutoPlay() method:


function StartPlay() 
var oRotator = GetRadRotator(); 
oRotator.set_rotatorType(Telerik.Web.UI.RotatorType.AutomaticAdvance); 
oRotator.startAutoPlay(); 
return false
}  

I hope this helps.

Thank you, that works for getting the AutoPlay started initially. However, now I find that I can't get the automatic rotation started after using the .pause() method. I've tried the resume() method, both by itself and in combination with the code above. What is the correct way to resume automatic rotation from the paused state?

Hi Dwertz,

When the rotator is stoped (paused) programmatically and it is set to AutomaticAdvance mode you can resume rotation by calling start() instead startAutoPlay() function of RadRotator's object e.g. :

function StartPlay() 
    var oRotator = GetRadRotator(); 
    if (oRotator.get_rotatorType() == Telerik.Web.UI.RotatorType.AutomaticAdvance) 
    { 
        oRotator.start(); 
    } 
    else 
    { 
        oRotator.set_rotatorType(Telerik.Web.UI.RotatorType.AutomaticAdvance); 
        oRotator.startAutoPlay(); 
    } 
    return false
