question about AdRotator

P: n/a
Dan
Hi,

I created an AdRotator control with this code:
<asp:AdRotator id="AdRotator1"
Runat="Server" AdvertisementFile="adrotator.xml">
</asp:AdRotator>

The xml file contains:
<Advertisements>
<Ad>
<ImageUrl>images/pic1.png</ImageUrl>
<NavigateUrl>http://www.cocacola.us</NavigateUrl>
<AlternateText>Coca Cola</AlternateText>
<Keyword>coca</Keyword>
<Impressions>50</Impressions>
</Ad>
<Ad>
<ImageUrl>images/pic2png</ImageUrl>
<NavigateUrl>http://www.alfaromeo.us</NavigateUrl>
<AlternateText>Alfa Romeo</AlternateText>
<Keyword>alfa</Keyword>
<Impressions>50</Impressions>
</Ad>
</Advertisements>

When running, i see the first advertising, but the second advertising never
appears. Do i need some codebehind code to switch from advertisings or it
must happen automatically?

Thanks
Dan

It should work, try to refresh the page few times and see if the image
changes.

hope this helps

Hi Milosz,

thanks for replying .. but i think there is a little misunderstanding ...
When i refresh my page, the advertising also changes.That's not the problem.
I thought the advertising would change by itself automatically.
Is it wrong and must the page each time be refreshed for switching between
advertisings?

Howdy,

It's just the way how it works (it requires a postback). You can find some
nice resolutions to this limitation (i.e. if you use MS AJAX put adrotator
inside an UpdatePanel). Anyway, it would involve javascript coding, for
instance:

Hope this helps

That's correct. The AdRotator is designed to pull one item at random from
the datasource. It doesn't pull them all and then iterate through them
client-side. There are third-party rotator controls that can do it.
r.a.d.Rotator from www.telerik.com is an excellent control that can work
this client-side.
