I prepared a sample project for you that shows an animation when the mouse enters in the content of a RadTileViewItem. You have to enter the smaller Rectangle that has Blue Fill. Please examine it and let us know if it helps you. If you something different, please be elaborate more precisely. Thank you for your cooperation.
