Template for Rotator using DataSource?

I want to create a Rotator on my screen

I want to be able to assign a template to it and populate the template using the values that come from my datasource from the controller

So for example my model would have


Similar as to what is on this sample

but I need all those values to come directly from my Controller and not hardcoded in the View. Can't seem to find a sample on how to accomplish this.

Hi Fabio,


We have achieved your requirement (passing rotator values from controller to view) by using “ContentTemplate” which is used in “Items” property of rotator component .We have maintained the rotator image, title and text values in the generic list and the list values are  passed from controller to the view as shown below code,




List<data> Values = new List<data>();

        public ActionResult Index()


            Values.Add(new data { Title = "Beautiful Bird", Image = "../Images/rotator/bird.jpg", Text = "Tablets are equipped with sensors, including cameras, microphone, accelerometer and touchscreen" });

            Values.Add(new data { Title = "Rose", Image = "../Images/rotator/rose.jpg",Text="Flowers vary in size and shape and are usually large and showy,There are over 100 species"});

            Values.Add(new data { Title = "Nature", Image = "../Images/rotator/nature.jpg", Text = "Nature, in the broadest sense, is equivalent to the natural, physical, or material world or universe." });

            Values.Add(new data { Title = "Snow Fall", Image = "../Images/rotator/snowfall.jpg", Text = "Mt. Baker ski area in Washington State has the world record for snowfall at 1,140 inches of snow in the 1998/1999 winter season" });

            Values.Add(new data { Title = "Credit Card", Image = "../Images/rotator/card.jpg", Text = "A credit card is a payment card issued to users as a system of payment.It allows the cardholder to pay for goods and services based on the holder's promise to pay for them" });

           ViewBag.dataSource = Values;

            return View(Values);



And in the view, we can get the list values of image, title and text in “Model” and processed as shown below code snippet,




@Html.EJ().Rotator("sliderContent").Items(itemElement =>



        foreach (var data in Model)




                <div class="leftPanel">

                    <img src="@Url.Content(@data.Image)" />


                <div class="rightPanel blck">

                    <div class="contentPanel">@data.Title </div>












Also, we have prepared the sample based on this and it is available under the following location,
