Telerik RadCoverFlow in SilverLight 5


Introduction

 

Today, in this article let's play around with another interesting concept of Telerik RadControls.

 

Question: What is RadCoverFlow?

 

In simple terms "It enables to provide a rich GUI interface which navigates through a group of images.".
 

I think we are now good to go to implement this wonderful concept.

 

Step 1: The complete code of MainPage.xaml looks like this:

<UserControl x:Class="RadCoverApplication.MainPage"xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008" xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006"xmlns:telerik="http://schemas.telerik.com/2008/xaml/presentation"mc:Ignorable="d" d:DesignWidth="640" d:DesignHeight="480">
    <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot">
        <telerik:RadCoverFlow Margin="126,12,108,61" Name="radCoverFlow1" OffsetX="0"OffsetY="40"CameraViewpoint="Top"DistanceBetweenItems="20"DistanceFromSelectedItem="5"
RotationY
="56"IsReflectionEnabled="True"ItemScale="0.60">
            <Image Source="pics/e6e22af6f3224593a6c658b3d3f7a1fd.jpg"  Width="400" Height="120"></Image>
            <Image Source="pics/Microsoft-.NET-logo-white.png"  Width="400" Height="120"></Image>
            <Image Source="pics/microsoft-windows-8.jpg" Width="400" Height="120"></Image>
            <Image Source="pics/microsoft (1).jpg"  Width="400" Height="120"></Image>
            <Image Source="pics/Microsoft.jpg"  Width="400" Height="120"></Image>
        </telerik:RadCoverFlow>
    </Grid>
</
UserControl>

Step 2: The complete code of MainPage.xaml.cs looks like this:


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Net;
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Controls;
using System.Windows.Documents;
using System.Windows.Input;
using System.Windows.Media;
using System.Windows.Media.Animation;
using System.Windows.Shapes;
namespace RadCoverApplication
{
    public partial class MainPage : UserControl
    {
        public MainPage()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }
    }
}

 

Step 3: The output of the application looks like this:

Step 4: The output of the left moved pics application looks like this:

Step 5: The output of the right moved pics application looks like this:
