Using ItemsSource

SfCarousel accepts any business object collection to be bound to its ItemsSource property.

Adding items to the control

Follow the below steps to add the Items through ItemsSource property.

public string Name { get; set; }

public string Description { get; set; }

}
Public Class Employee


Public Property Name() As String

2.Create a collection of model

private List<Employee> employees;

public List<Employee> Employees

{
	
get { return employees; }

set { employees = value; }

Public Property Employees() As List(Of Employee)


Get
	Return employees_Renamed
End Get

Set(ByVal value As List(Of Employee))
	employees_Renamed = value
End Set
