I have been working with the radTileView. It's going to do what I need it to do in most cases. However, when there are only a few items the RadTileViewItems take the full space proportionally. It doesn't matter if I set the TileState="Minimized" or TileState="Restored" and the RadFluidContentControl ContentChangeMode="Manual" and State="Small". The controls do appear in the proper state, however the border of the control takes the remaining space causing the controls to be spaced evenly in the area. Even if I manually set the maxHeight and maxWidth of the radTileViewItem.
Is there a way to cause the tiles to be top left justified and leave blank space to the bottom and right when minimized or restored?
The other thing is that when I have a radTileView item maximized and the minimizedItemsPosition="Right" the same kind of spacing issue occurs. I would like them to appear like they do in the "Tile States" BMW section of this link - http://www.telerik.com/products/silverlight/tileview.aspx
I have also tried this with the sample code by adjusting the number of BMW tileViewItems and the size of their container.
I would like to use it more like a list box with very small items taking advantage of the eye candy moving them around and the maximize to edit the information in the control.
Thank you for your help.
