    I designed a form in a tileview content item which customers can send emails to the head office. How can I get the items within the content of tileview? I mean get a textbox value!

    Hello Kamal,

    Could you please tell us how have defined your RadTileView and RadTileViewItems - in XAML or via code (ex. binding)?

    Hi Kamal,

    In this case you can set an x:Name/Name property for each element that you need to access. Setting these properties in XAML identifies the elements in a XAML name-scope. For example if you have the following RadTileView definition:
    <telerik:RadTileView x:Name="tileView">
        <telerik:RadTileViewItem Header="Tile 1">
                <TextBlock x:Name="textBl1" Text="TextBlock1" />
        <telerik:RadTileViewItem Header="Tile 2" Content="Content of Tile 2"/>
    You can access the RadTileViewItem "Tile 1" TextBlock in code-behind through its x:Name property:
    textBl1.Text = "Test";

    Another approach that you can use is to access the TextBlock through the RadTileViewItem.Content property. It holds the content of the tile. This means that the "Tile 1" RadTileViewItem.Content will be an object of type StackPanel. While the "Tile 2" RadTileViewItem.Content will be a string - "Content of Tile 2". This is why you can access the RadTileViewItem "Tile 1" TextBlock in code behind like so:
    RadTileViewItem tile1 = tileView.Items[0] as RadTileViewItem;
    TextBlock txt1 = (tile1.Content as StackPanel).Children[0] as TextBlock;
    txt1.Text = "Test";

    I hope this information will help you. Let us know if we can further assist you.

    Hi Tina and Kiril,

    what if I defined my RadTileView and RadTileViewItems via binding?


    Greetings, João

    Hi  João,

    You can use the second approach Tina suggested, but when you get the TileViewItem you should cast is to your business class instead of RadTileViewItem: 
    var tile1 = xTileView.Items[0] as CustomerAccount;
    where CustomerAccount is a class from the ViewModel and then you can work with its properties (e.g. email address, name, etc.).

    I hope this information helps.
