    Maybe I'm missing it or just being lazy, sorry.  I want to use the TlieList control but I have a requirement to show an updated total on one of the Tiles. (It's a "Pending" tile that will show a number).  How would I go about doing that with this?

    I'm guessing/trying the following, add a Textblock to one of my Tile's and Bind it to my ViewModel....am I on the right track or is there a simpler way built in?

    Thanks

    Hello Patrick ,

    You are absolutely on the right track .In order to bind from within the Tile to your data context , you may need to expose it as a  static resource  and use this static resource as source for the binding.

    * This is needed as the tile is a content control and what is inside does not inherit the DataContext of the RadTileList.

    Thanks Pavel,

    I'll give it a try then.  I've never done what you are suggesting so don't be surprised if you see me back here...
