    I'm trying to get the name of the tile when selected but because I'm binding my RadTileList to an observablecollection the tile's do not have that property set, is it possible to bind the tile x:Name property?

    I guess in looking further into this what's more important is setting a Command and CommandParameter for each tile??

    Hello Joe,

    It is not possible to bind the x:Name property since it is not a DependencyProperty. Alternatively you can use FrameworkElement's Tag property. As for binding a command to the RadTiles, you can use an implicit style like so:
    <Style TargetType="{x:Type telerik:Tile}" >
                    <Setter Property="Command" Value="{Binding MyCommand}" />
                    <Setter Property="CommandParameter" Value="{Binding MyCommandParameter}" />

    Please note that if you are using implicit styles, you will have to base the style on the theme's default one.

    I hope this helps. Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
