    I am using telerik RadTileView control. I had to create a template to stick it to ContentTemplate. This has a ItemSource bound to ObservableCollection.

    <DataTemplate x:Key="tileHeaderTemplate">
        <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
            <TextBlock HorizontalAlignment="Center" Text="{Binding Name}"></TextBlock>
            <Button x:Name="btnCloseTileItem" HorizontalAlignment="Right" Content="X" Click="btnCloseTileItem_Click"></Button>
    <DataTemplate x:Key="TabItemTemplate">
            Some controls here
    <telerik:RadTileView x:Name="SelectedTablesTile" ColumnsCount="3" ColumnWidth="*" ItemTemplate="{StaticResource tileHeaderTemplate}" ItemsSource="{Binding FinalTablesCollection}" ContentTemplate="{StaticResource TabItemTemplate}" IsAutoScrollingEnabled="True" IsDockingEnabled="True" IsVirtualizing="True" MinimizedColumnWidth="150" MinimizedRowHeight="150" PreservePositionWhenMaximized="True" RowHeight="150" TileStateChangeTrigger="SingleClick" AllowDrop="False" Grid.Row="0">

    I am not able to understand as to how I can bind the name of the RadTileViewItem.

    Hi Deepak,

    Basically in MVVM scenarios the x:Name attribute of the UI elements are not used. Could you please provide us with more detailed information about your requirements? This will help us to better understand why you need to use that attribute. Once we do so we will be able to suggest a better approach in your particular scenario.

    Hi Pavel,

    You are absolutely right. Realised it.. Change my logic and as you said there is no need for me to set the name. 
    Thanks for putting me in right direction.
