    Good morning,

    There seems to be an issue where the content of a RadTileViewItem is not visible when using the MetroTheme.
    If I remove the metro theme or use a different theme then the content is visible again.

    Application wide theme:
    StyleManager.ApplicationTheme = new MetroTheme();

    TileView control:
    <telerik:RadTileView MaximizeMode="ZeroOrOne" RowHeight="200" ColumnWidth="250">
                <telerik:RadTileViewItem Header="Berkeley Park">
                    <TextBlock>Test</TextBlock>
                </telerik:RadTileViewItem>
                <telerik:RadTileViewItem Header="Posh Park Developments">
                    <TextBlock Margin="10">Test</TextBlock>
                </telerik:RadTileViewItem>
                <telerik:RadTileViewItem Header="King Park">
                    <TextBlock Margin="10">Test</TextBlock>
                </telerik:RadTileViewItem>
                <telerik:RadTileViewItem Header="King Park">
                    <TextBlock Margin="10">Test</TextBlock>
                </telerik:RadTileViewItem>
                <telerik:RadTileViewItem Header="King Park">
                    <TextBlock Margin="10">Test</TextBlock>
                </telerik:RadTileViewItem>
            </telerik:RadTileView>

    Hi Robert,

     The problem is the default foreground for the Metro theme is White and the tile view item background is white also. We've address the issue and will fix it for the upcoming SP1 release. 
    In the meanwhile, you can set explicitly the Foreground to the TextBlocks to Black or the color you want.

    Kind regards,

    ah yes you're right! I didn't notice that the font colour was changing!

    Thanks for your help.
