Remarks

Use the AdProperties property to get a System.Collections.IDictionary object that contains the advertisement properties for the currently displayed advertisement. The keys and values of the System.Collections.IDictionary object are of type System.String.

The AdRotator control randomly selects an advertisement each time the control is displayed on the Web page. The attributes for the selected advertisement are extracted from the advertisement XML file and stored in a System.Collections.IDictionary object. When the AdRotator control creates a new instance of the AdCreatedEventArgs class, the AdProperties property gets initialized with the System.Collections.IDictionary object.

Custom attributes about an advertisement, such as an advertisement caption, can also be included in the advertisement XML file. Use this property in the OnAdCreated event handler to get the custom attributes.
