Hi,
 If I put content such as M&T in the RadTickerItem it changes the  & to &. Is there a way to stop this from happening? In the code below the Ham & Eggs becomes Ham & Eggs.
<telerik:RadTicker AutoStart="true" runat="server" ID="Radticker1" Loop="true">
    <Items>
        <telerik:RadTickerItem >Ham & Eggs</telerik:RadTickerItem>
        <telerik:RadTickerItem>M&T<telerik:RadTickerItem>
        <telerik:RadTickerItem>AT&T<telerik:RadTickerItem>
    </Items>
</telerik:RadTicker>

Hi Joe,

By design the RadTicker control does not support '&' characters in its content and in your case I would recommend using the RadRotator control instead. You can configure the rotator to behave like a RadTicker control (not exactly but similar) and show the desired content as demonstrated in the following code sample:
<telerik:RadRotator runat="server" ID="RadRotator1"
    ItemHeight="100px" Height="100px" Width="200px" ItemWidth="200px" FrameDuration="1"
    ScrollDuration="5000">
    <Items>
        <telerik:RadRotatorItem>
            <ItemTemplate>
                Ham & Eggs
            </ItemTemplate>
        </telerik:RadRotatorItem>
        <telerik:RadRotatorItem>
            <ItemTemplate>
                M&T
            </ItemTemplate>
        </telerik:RadRotatorItem>
        <telerik:RadRotatorItem>
            <ItemTemplate>
                AT&T
            </ItemTemplate>
        </telerik:RadRotatorItem>
    </Items>
</telerik:RadRotator>
