    Hello,

    I have a WPF application where I am using a TileView to show different user controls. It is very confusing for our customers when the tile they click gets removed from the docked (minimized) area. The tile goes back to the correct location when they click another tile, but we would like to keep the list of docked tiles the same even when the tile is maximized. For example, if I have 4 total tiles, I would like to keep all 4 in the minimized list when the user clicks an item. Right now, you only see 3 tiles in the minimized list, because the other is maximized.

    I would like to change the background color or header color of the tile when it is selected and keep it in this list. Is it possible to have this behavior?

    Thank you,
    Scott

    Hi Scott,
    Currently the RadTileView doesn't support this behavior, but you can achieve something similar with two RadTileViews - one will contain the "minimized item" and the other one will contain only the maximized one.
    In the PreviewTileStateChanged EventHandler you can see the new maximized item, handle the event (so that the item won't maximize) and add this item to the other RadTileView.
    For further references could you please examine the attached project and see if this is what you're looking for?
    p.s. There's a small bug in the RadTileViewItem when you handle the PreviewTileStateChanged event, but I've provided a workaround for it in the attached project.

    Best wishes,

    Thanks for the response. That is what I was looking for.  Will there be support for this in one tile view in the future?

    Hello Scott,
    We'll consider this feature request, but I think that there'll some unpleasant problems if we allow two identical RadTileViewItems to be in the same RadTileView simultaneously.
