Loading animation

If you want to benefit from the built-in loading bar and you use a ItemTemplate to define a specific layout of your RadCoverFlowItems you should use the attached property EnableNotification. Here is an example how to use the attached property with a custom ItemTemplate in RadCoverFlow:

             <Image Source="{Binding}" Width="225" Height="225" Stretch="None" telerik:RadCoverFlow.EnableLoadNotification="True" /> 
Now, if your source points to an image on the internet, the loading animation will be shown until the image is downloaded and displayed.
