    <link href="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/17.2.0.28/js/mobile/ej.mobile.all.min.css" rel="stylesheet"/>
    <script src="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/js/assets/external/jquery-1.10.2.min.js"></script>
    <script src="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/js/assets/external/jsrender.min.js"></script>
    <script src="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/js/assets/external/jquery.globalize.min.js"></script>
    <script src="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/17.2.0.28/js/mobile/ej.mobile.all.min.js"></script>
    </head>
    <body>
        <div id="page">
            <!-- header control -->
           <div id="header" data-role="ejmnavigationbar" data-ej-title="Photo Gallery" data-ej-isrelative="true">
        </div>        
    <div id="content">
                <div>
                    <!--Add Rotator Element here-->
                </div>
            </div>
        </div>
    </body>
    </html>

    Create the Rotator control

    To render the Rotator control, set “data-role” attribute to “ejmrotator” to a div element. Also set “data-ej-targetid” attribute with the id of the target element that contains the HTML template for each item. Each first level child div element of the target element acts as an item of Rotator.

  • html
  • <div id="rotator" data-role="ejmrotator" data-ej-targetid="rotatorcontent">
     </div>    
    
    <div id="rotatorcontent">
            <div><!—  child 1 -->
                <div class="photo photo1">
                </div>
            </div><div><!—  child 2 -->
                <div class="photo photo2">
                </div>
            </div><div><!—  child 3 -->
                <div class="photo photo3">
                </div>
            </div><div><!—  child 4 -->
                <div class="photo photo4">
                </div>
            </div><div><!—  child 5 -->
                <div class="photo photo5">
                </div>
            </div>
        </div>
