    Hi, 

    I've been using the updated LiveTileHelper and am having trouble getting the Small Icon displayed. Using the below code snippet


    if (LiveTileHelper.AreNewTilesSupported)
               {
                   // Create Iconic Tile for calls
                   var IconTileData = new RadIconicTileData
                   {
                       SmallIconImage = new Uri("Images/appbar.network_normal.png", UriKind.Relative),
                       IconImage = new Uri("Images/appbar.network_large.png", UriKind.Relative),
                       Count = 0,
                   };
                   LiveTileHelper.CreateOrUpdateTile(IconTileData, new Uri("/Mainpage.xaml?page=data", UriKind.Relative), false);

    The IconImage works fine, but when resizing the tile to small, the image will disappear. I've triple checked the references, and they're ok. The files are set to Content - Copy if newer and the image is the recommended size 70px x 110px.

    I've been testing on a WP8 device, but the app is being compiled for WP7.5. When testing on the 7.8 emulator, the small icon displays fine.

    Any ideas?

    regards

    David

    Hi David,

    We experienced a similar behavior with the IconicTileTemplate  and it was fixed with our last internal build. Please download it from your account and let us know if the issue persists.

    All the best,

    Thanks, 

    I've downloaded the latest internal builds and replaced the existing binaries. However, I've run into issues adding the updated BackgroundAgentTools to the background task. I get an error message

    "A reference to a higher version or incompatible assembly cannot be added to the project."

    Hi David,

    Please make sure that you have downloaded the internal build for RadControls for Windows Phone 7 and the project that you have created targets Windows Phone OS 7.1. If these requirements are met, try cleaning and rebuilding the solution prior to adding the new references and then try to add them to the solution.

    Thanks.

    That was all done, and correct. However, I had forgotten that DLLs that are manually downloaded from the web are automatically blocked by Win8, so they won't be added. I had to manually unblock them before they would be added.

    All good now, and it fixes the missing images issue.
