The ASPxNewsControl is designed to display news or announcements on a web page. This control is shown in the image below:
The ASPxNewsControl can function in bound and unbound modes:
To bind the control to a data source, use its ASPxDataWebControl.DataSourceID property. To indicate the way the control's items are populated from the data source, use the following properties:
To populate items, use the methods provided by the ASPxNewsControl.Items collection. The collection provides methods and properties that allow you to add new items and remove existing ones, access individual items, etc.
To access item settings, use the ASPxNewsControl.ItemSettings property. For more information on item settings, see NewsItem.
To allow end-users to immediately navigate to the top of the current page, set the ASPxNewsControl.ShowBackToTop property to true. This shows the Back to top link within items. To specify a custom text for this link, use the ASPxNewsControl.BackToTopText property. It's also possible to display an image before this link, by specifying the ASPxNewsControl.BackToTopImage property.
The client-side API is always available for this control.
