    For evaluation purpose I'm testing the RadTileView. I would like to have a scrollbar if there are many items to show.
    With the XAML in your Example, that's no problem, but...

    Now, if I set my datacontext in codebehind and using domaincontext from RIA services, there's at first no scrollbar.
    I have to change the size of IE for example. (Refresh the control).
    I don't know why.
    Could this be, because of changing the datacontext from "null" to something?

    The mousewheel doesn't work, too.
    But this seems to be a general problem, or am I doing something wrong?

    I notified either, that the scrollbar is making tiny steps if you are using the up and down arrows.
    Can I change that?

    Would be nice to get some answers because we're planning to use Telerik an especially TileView a lot.

    Hello Fabian,

    Now, if I set my datacontext in codebehind and using domaincontext from RIA services, there's at first no scrollbar.
    I have to change the size of IE for example. (Refresh the control).
    I don't know why.

    This appears to be an issue in RadTileView. A fix will be available with this weeks internal build i.e. when you set/reset the items source of RadTileView, the control will automatically determine if it needs a scrollbar. I've also updated your Telerik points because of this report.

    The mousewheel doesn't work, too.
    But this seems to be a general problem, or am I doing something wrong?


    We are aware of this limitation of RadTileView. This functionality will be available with our 2010 Q2 Service Pack release which is scheduled for the middle of August. Here is the public issue tracking system item associated for this functionality. Meanwhile, I've prepared a small project that shows one possible way to achieve this functionality.

    I notified either, that the scrollbar is making tiny steps if you are using the up and down arrows.
    Can I change that?


    The attached project shows how to achieve this. Once you get a reference to the scrollbar in RadTileView, you can set the SmallChange property of the scrollbar. In the future RadTileView will probably contain a property called ScrollBar that will allow you to easily access the scrollbar and set various properties.

    Have a look at the project and let me know if you have additional questions. I'd be glad to further assist you.

    All the best,

    Hi Fabian,

    I just want to let you know that I've added an item in our public issue tracking system under the name "TileView: Add ScrollBar property exposing the scrollbar element". You can follow this item in order to understand when the feature will be implemented exactly. Let me know if you have further questions or comments regarding this topic.

    Sincerely yours,

    Hi Fabian,

    It usually takes around 24 hours for the public issue tracking system to update itself and display the newly added items, so probably tomorrow the latest the item will be available for tracking.
