Hi,
A prospect had sent me the following and asked me if we can do this kind of CF effects?
Once you're in the site, click Photography, and you see a CF opens up which  you can navigate. But it uses a fairly small amount of "Width" and uses depth for placing other images and uses nice zoom out effect to bring the image out.

Is it possible to have this kind of effect?

Hello ..Ben,

 Actually this is achievable with the RadCoverFlow control - you just need to customize it a little. Please take a look at the attached project.

Hi Miroslav;

I remember seeing that sample previously and I now put it side by side with the above site, and you're right it can be made to come close to it. I guess the movement speed and the resizing on that site is more pronounced which gives it a more Wow effect. I need to play with the speed and making the images 50% of what they show in the middle;

Thank you for quick respond!
..Ben

I notice something odd. If I make any changes to the sample you provided in VS or Blend (which I see the changes in design mode) and compile and run, I only get the output that was originally configured with the sample. Even I cleared the cache and deleted the xap, dll and recompile and see those dll and xap being recreated, but when I hit F5, none of the changes shows up. Why is that? I even saved the project and started again, and I see the changes were saved to source code, so they're not read-only.

Hello ..Ben,

 I don't know why is this happening - I didn't do anything special in the project - just created a new Silverlight application and customize the CoverFlow in Blend. Could you please check the references - I added referenced to the assemblies that are somewhere on my computer and most probably there is no such folder on your machine - this might be causing the problem.

Best wishes,

Hi Miro;

I removed the references, and added them again and no change;
here is the xaml code and see the Item

<telerikNavigation:RadCoverFlow CameraViewpoint="Center" ItemScale="0.1"
                        DistanceFromSelectedItem="0" OffsetY="164"
                        ReflectionHeight="0.5" DistanceBetweenItems="70"
                        IsReflectionEnabled="True" CameraDistance="197"
                        SelectedIndex="8" ReflectionOpacity="0.7" RotationY="35" ReflectionRelativeHeight="1">

And take a look at the screen shot of that code. That's why I said it's odd! Using SL3!
