    I have a telerik tile control within xaml. I have set both front and back for the tile control. I then use this tile to set the RadExtendedTileData.
    VisualElement. Should it not set both the front and back secondary tile that I'm trying to create?

    public MainPage()
            this.radHubTile.Height = 173;
            this.radHubTile.Width = 173;
            this.frontTile.SetProperties(new BitmapImage(new Uri("/Images/sunny.png", UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute)),
                String.Format("25{0}", DegreeSign));
            this.radHubTile.FrontContent = this.frontTile;
            this.radHubTile.BackContent = this.backTile;
        private void RadImageButton_Tap_1(object sender, System.Windows.Input.GestureEventArgs e)
            RadExtendedTileData tileData = new RadExtendedTileData()
                VisualElement = Tile
            Uri tileUri = new Uri("/MainPage.xaml", UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute);
            ShellTile tile = Telerik.Windows.Controls.LiveTileHelper.GetTile(tileUri);
            if (tile != null)
            Telerik.Windows.Controls.LiveTileHelper.CreateTile(tileData, tileUri);

    Hello Tom,

    This is not the way LiveTileHelper works. What it does is to make an image of the element that you specify for VisualElement and another image for the element that you specify for BackVisualElement. It disregards whether the element that you provide for VisualElement has back side or not, it just makes the picture of the element as it looks in the moment you set the VisualElement.

    I hope this information helps.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
