Carousel Message

The CarouselMessage utilizes the RadCarousel component for displaying its data. Its constructor accepts the following parameters.

  • MessageDisplayPosition displayPosition
  • Author author
  • IEnumerable source
  • DateTime creationDate

For the purpose of this example a sample collection of ImageCards will be defined.

Example 1: Defining a CarouselMessage

List<ImageCardMessage> imageCards = new List<ImageCardMessage>(); 
 
        ImageCardMessage imageCardMessagePlane = new ImageCardMessage(this.currentAuthor); 
        imageCardMessagePlane.ImageSource = new BitmapImage(new Uri("/Images/Filhas.png", UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute)); 
        imageCardMessagePlane.Title = "Filhas"; 
        imageCardMessagePlane.CardOrientation = CardOrientation.Portrait; 
        imageCardMessagePlane.ImageDisplayMode = ImageDisplayMode.Stretch; 
 
        imageCards.Add(imageCardMessagePlane); 
 
        ImageCardMessage imageCardMessageShip = new ImageCardMessage(this.currentAuthor); 
        imageCardMessageShip.ImageSource = new BitmapImage(new Uri("/Images/Casadapaz.png", UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute)); 
        imageCardMessageShip.Title = "Casadapaz"; 
        imageCardMessageShip.CardOrientation = CardOrientation.Portrait; 
        imageCardMessageShip.ImageDisplayMode = ImageDisplayMode.Stretch; 
 
        imageCards.Add(imageCardMessageShip); 
 
        ImageCardMessage imageCardMessageTrain = new ImageCardMessage(this.currentAuthor); 
        imageCardMessageTrain.ImageSource = new BitmapImage(new Uri("/Images/Hotelresidential.png", UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute)); 
        imageCardMessageTrain.Title = "Hotelresidential"; 
        imageCardMessageTrain.CardOrientation = CardOrientation.Portrait; 
        imageCardMessageTrain.ImageDisplayMode = ImageDisplayMode.Stretch; 
 
        imageCards.Add(imageCardMessageTrain); 
 
        CarouselMessage carouselMessage = new CarouselMessage(MessageDisplayPosition.Overlay, this.currentAuthor, imageCards); 
 
        this.chat.AddMessage(carouselMessage);
