    The custom hub tile is great; however, I've been running into issues controlling it.  I have some heavy duty content on the backs of a bunch of tiles so I've been trying to limit showing of the backs to one at a time except when the user "locks" a particular tile to its back content.  I've done this using a combination IsFrozen, setting the BackContent to null, and leveraging the TiltUpdateInterval from my model.  This works mostly but my app can become out of phase with the actual scene when the timing is just right.

    Any chance of you guys adding a bindable boolean for us to solidly control which side is showing?  This would greatly simplify my model and presumably work more consistently.

    Thanks for any help/info.

    Hello Jonathan,

    Thank you for the feedback.
    Your suggestion seems reasonable. I am thinking about an IsFlipped property or something like this. It will allow you to manually flip the tile when necessary and will override the automatic periodic updates. Is this what you are looking for?

    I am looking forward to your reply.

    Victor,

    An IsFlipped as you described would be perfect.

    Thanks

    Hi Michiel,

    Thank you for writing.
    I am afraid that this feature did not make into the official release. We will include it in an internal build which we will release later this week or next week. I will notify you as soon as the new version is available.

    Thank you for understanding.

    HI, I see that IsFlipped is now implemented and is great but i can't resume the Flipping animation anymore.



    I was expecting that if the tile is forced to one state and brake the animation to have the IsFrozen state set to true and to be able to set the IsFrozen state to False and resume the animation.



    Right now in WP7 version of controls if I set the IsFlipped to true i cannot resume the animation.



    Am I doing something wrong?



    Thank you.

    I've found a temporary solution...

    I've set the state from the visual state, going around the IsFlipped and setting the IsFrozen = true and unfrozen the tile to be able to have a pause resume experience.

    So just a conclusion ... The IsFrozen should be set to true when changing the IsFlipped and when the IsFrozed is changed to false then should be able to resume the animation.

    Hi Dan,

    Try clearing the IsFrozen property:

    this.ClearValue(RadCustomHubTile.IsFlippedProperty);
