Does this make any sense to try with this control?

    Hello,

    I am prototyping a user interface.  Basic slimmed down requirements are that I have a list of items on left side of page for the user to select.  On the right side of the list there will be a large view that contains information about the item that was selected in the list.  I have put together UI like this many times and also have used many telerik controls in our applications.  The TileView caught my eye for this one, thinking that I may be able to have something that serves the purpose and provides a bit of modern look and feel rather than just a list.

    I practice MVVM and use prism with unity injection.

    So what I am looking to get from this control is a templated list of items on left side in a single column.  When one is selected a templated view of the information related to the selection animates (maximizes) over to the right.  I do not want to ever have the items in a tiled view with several columnns and I do not want to have to Maximize in order to see information on the right side. 

    Can you let me know if I am going to be able to achieve this functionality with the control?  In addition, if this is possible, could you provide a simple example for me to download?

    Thanks,

    Jason Munger

    Hi Jason,
    I think you shouldn't have any problems to achieve the described functionality with the RadTileView and the RadFluidContentControl. Following your guidelines I've created and attached a sample project so could you please examine it and see if this is what you're looking for?
    If you have more questions don't hesitate to ask.

    Zarko,

    Thank you for providing the sample.  This sample meets the requirements I have layed out.  One last question... is it possible to keep a "phantom" minimized version of the maximized tile?  So in other words if I select from the minimized tiles collection, the maximized version of the item would display but the minimized version would never go away and would also appear to be selected somehow.  In addition, I would like to never have the collection reordered when an item is maximized.  Please let me know what you think.

    Thanks,

    Jason

    Just downloaded this sample, and got this error when I opened it...

    The type reference cannot find a public type named 'TileViewItemHeader'. Line 12 Position 117.    D:\Downloads\_Software, Utilities and Drivers\Telerik\WPF\Samples\RadTileView and RadFluidContentControl\WpfApplication1\MainWindow.xaml    12    117    WpfApplication1

    When I opened up MainWindow.xaml, the designer showed an error, and I got an additional error in the errors window...

    The property 'HeaderStyle' was not found in type 'RadTileView'.    D:\Downloads\_Software, Utilities and Drivers\Telerik\WPF\Samples\RadTileView and RadFluidContentControl\WpfApplication1\MainWindow.xaml    220    24    WpfApplication1

    Any ideas? Thanks

    Hi Jason,
    Unfortunately there's no straightforward way to keep the maximized item in the minimized column. If you really need this feature we may try to workaround it. As for you second question - if you don't want your items to change their sizes on maximization you should set the PreservePositionWhenMaximized property of the RadTileView to true.
    If you need further assistance please feel free to ask.

    Hi Avrohom Yisroel,
    Could you please tell us which is the version of your dlls, because from the exceptions I guess you have an older version (before 2011.2.712) and that's why you can't run the project (the HeaderStyle and the TileViewItemHeader were added in 2011.2.712)? If this is the case you'll have to change the style a little bit in order to run the project.
    If you have more questions please feel free to ask.

    Best wishes,

    Hello,

    I did have that version, but I tried updating to the latest, and it worked fine, so there was obviously some issue with the versions.

    Thanks
