    Hi guys,

    I have a couple of questions about the TileView controller.

    1. Is it virtualized?
    2. Is there an easy way to set the sizes of the tiles for small, normal, and large content?
    3. Is it possible to remove the header altogether and just use a click event on the tile to change the tile state?

    Thanks

    Helen

    Hi Helen,

     I'll try to answer your questions:
    1 - Yes, as from Q1 2011 the RadTileView supports UI Virtualization
    2 - Again, from Q1 2011 you can customize the size of the RadTileViewItems with the RowHeight, ColumnWidth, MinimizedRowHeight and MinimizedColumnWidth properties. You can also take a look at this example.
    3 - This behavior is not available out of the box, but you can achieve it by editing the template of the RadTileViewItem and doing some checks in code behind. Could you please examine the attached project and see if this is what you are looking for. The drawback is that you can't drag and drop items if you don't have a header.
    I hope I was able to help you and if you have more questions feel free to ask.

    Kind regards,

    Hi guys,

    This is a great step forward. One little glitch -- it's not picking up the formatting of the

        TileViewItemState

     

     

    .Minimized:  

     

     

     

    state.

    Everything else seems to be fine.

    I've played with this solution, and the minimized items have the same format as the normal content items. How  can I fix this?

    Never mind, think I've solved it.

    Thanks
