How to load images in the Carousel?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: Carousel

The Carousel control is a circular conveyor where objects are displayed and rotated. The Carousel control provides a 3-D interface for displaying objects with interactive navigation. You can add images through ImageListCollection, that is, only when the ImageSlides property is set to true.

The following code example demonstrates the same.


private void buttonAdv1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    for (int i = 1; i <= 5; i++)
        CarouselImage carouselImage = new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.CarouselImage();
        // Sets the carousel image.
        carouselImage.ItemImage = Image.FromFile("..\\..\\Images\\" + i + ".jpg");
        //Adds the carousel images to ImageListCollection.
    // Displays the images in the Carousel.
    this.carousel1.ImageSlides = true;


Private Sub buttonAdv1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles buttonAdv1.Click
    For i As Integer = 1 To 5
        Dim carouselImage As CarouselImage = New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.CarouselImage()
        'Sets the carousel image.
        carouselImage.ItemImage = Image.FromFile("..\..\Images\" & i & ".jpg")
        'Adds the carousel images to ImageListCollection.
    Next i
    'Displays the images in the Carousel.
    Me.carousel1.ImageSlides = True
End Sub



The items of the ImageListCollection in the Carousel should contain the Carousel image.

Hello How I can do the reverse process? That is, remove the active image from ImageListCollection Reply

Hi Walter,

Yes, this requirement can be achieved by handling OnCarouselItemSelectionChanging event andusing Remove method in Carousel.


Code snippet [C#]


void carousel1_OnCarouselItemSelectionChanging(object sender,CarouselItemSelectionChangingArgs e)


Carousel carousel = sender as Carousel;


List<CarouselImage> imageList = new List<CarouselImage>();


foreach (CarouselImage image in carousel.ImageListCollection)







foreach(CarouselImage img in imageList)


if (img.ItemImage == e.SelectedImage)
