    Hi,
    How do I create a tile with a transparent background so that it comes out in the accent colour?. Currently the background bits of the Visual Element come out in black.

    Thanks

    Hi Andrew,

    Thank you for your question.

    Currently, it is not possible to create a tile with transparent background with our LiveTileHelper. We have plans to extend the features of this control, so stay tuned and expect to see this feature soon.

    Hello Andrew,

    Yes, the features will be part of our Q1 2013 release, scheduled for end of February.

    Hi Todor,

    any updates on that problem? With 2013.1 I still have the problem if I use a .png image for example.
    The background ist black and not in accent colour.

    Kind regards,
    Fabian

    Edit: I have downgraded to 2012.3.1311.2040 again, and accent color works. Layout was wrong with 2013.1, too.
    2012.3 makes it perfect.

    Hi Fabian,

    The support of transparency was introduced with Q1 2013. We added a new property IsTransparencySupported. Here you can see an example.
