    We have images stored in a database as blobs which we want to load on demand into a slideshow. Is it possible to use the BinaryImage control convert and display the images into the radrotator control from a memory stream?
    If this isn't the correct approach, how would we go about creating this functionality?

    Your help is very much appreciated!

    Hi Ben,

    You can use RadBinaryImage to load the images from your database in a load on demand RadRotator. To do this, you should render the binary image control in the web service that loads the data in the rotator and use its ImageUrl to add the image in the rotator items. You can find attached a sample that demonstrates the suggested approach and will help you with your scenario. To run the sample, please add the Telerik database in the App_Data folder (it can be found in this directory - [Your RadControls installation path]\Live Demos\App_Data).
