Local data binding

Rotator provides the data binding support for the Rotator item. So you can bind the data from JSON Data. For this behavior, you need to map the corresponding filed with their column names. The data can be bound as a list and it is assigned to e-dataSource property. You can refer the following code example to bind local data.

  • html
  • <ul ej-rotator id="sliderContent" [dataSource]="data" [fields]="fieldList" [showPlayButton]="true" [showCaption]="true" width="500px" height="150px"
                                slideWidth="400px" slideHeight="300px">
                            </ul>
  • js
  • export class AppComponent {
       data: Array<any>;
       fieldList: Object;
        constructor() {
            this.data = [
              { text: "Green", url: " http://js.syncfusion.com/demos/web/content/images/rotator/green.jpg" },
              { text: "Snowfall", url: " http://js.syncfusion.com/demos/web/content/images/rotator/snowfall.jpg" },

              { text: "Nature", url: " http://js.syncfusion.com/demos/web/content/images/rotator/nature.jpg" }
    
            ];
            this.fieldList = { dataSource: this.data, text: 'text', url: 'url' };
        }
        }
