Hi Mohanmed Yousuf,

Thanks for your update.

We have checked the published knowledge base's carousel code (both ways). We were unable to reproduce the reported issue. Here, we have republished this KB with sample. The attached sample illustrates the both ways to render the carousel control. Please download the sample from this page. 

Please look at the sample and if you are facing the same issue, update us with mode details (device specification, Syncfusion Assemblies version) to analyze further and provide an appropriate solution.

And for getting immediate reply regarding your queries please contact support@syncfusion.com
