Images not shown in custom widget


Images not shown in custom widget

  • Images not shown in custom widget
  • I created an image slider (jquery) which should slide through my product images. I use the following code:

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                if (!IsPostBack)
                    rptProductSlider.ItemDataBound += new RepeaterItemEventHandler(rptProductSlider_ItemDataBound);
            void rptProductSlider_ItemDataBound(object sender, RepeaterItemEventArgs e)
                if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item || e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem)
                    Product p = e.Item.DataItem as Product;
                    var imgProduct = e.Item.FindControl("imgProduct") as Image;
                    imgProduct.ImageUrl = p.ThumbnailUrl;
                    imgProduct.AlternateText = p.ThumbnailAlternativeText;
            private void BindData()
                var manager = CatalogManager.GetManager();
                this.rptProductSlider.DataSource = manager.GetProducts();

    For some reason the slider shows the default image instead of the image that I uploaded with my products.

    What am I doing wrong? The ProductList control that comes with the ECommerce module, is showing the images without a problem?

  • Hi Daniel,

    You'll need to call CatalogManager's "PopulateImages" function on the list of Products that are returned from "GetProducts". Alternatively, you can call "SetProductImages" on each Product returned from "GetProducts".

  • Can't figure out what 'provider' I have to fill in with this method. The SetProductImages() works okay, though...
  • Passing an empty string for that parameter will be fine in most cases.
  • Hm... doesn't work, unfortunately.
    Hi Daniel Plomp,

    The solution that Daniel suggested will work. I am also providing you a small sample attached to this reply where I demonstrated how you would get list of Products with Images.

    Let me know if you are still facing any issues, and I will be glad to help.

    Kind regards,
