I am using RadRotator to display photos on a home page.  The site is slow to load and I think every image in the xml file feeding the rotator is loading rather than just the initial photo.  I don't want every photo in the list to have to load before the visitor sees the page.  I didn't see any reference to controlling the loading of images in the documentation. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks

It seems like the load-on-demand feature of RadRotator won't be out until Q1 2010, but the initial post from the thread I found this information in has an idea of how to manually do this. Maybe implementing this timer to load the images after the page has been rendered will help you out.

Hi J K,

As Schlurk said, the LOD feature of the rotator is planned for the Q1 2010 release. For now, you can use a timer + XmlHttpPanel/AjaxPanel implementation or you can put the RadRotator in a panel and load a small number of pictures (say 10) and then after these pictures have all been displayed, update the rotator with Ajax and display another set of pictures.

Kind regards,
