    I have searched around quite a bit to try to find out how to do this, but maybe im not looking in the right place. Is there anyway i can see a sample project/code on how to change the Maximize tooltip on the individual TileViewItems to something like "Preview"?

    Note: The RadTileView is populated dynamically in the code behind. I need to attach this change to the individual RadViewItems as they are being added to the Main View.

    Thank You in Advance!

    Hello Justin,

    You can apply a style to the RadTileViewItem TileViewItemHeader Control Element. The RadTileView control exposes a style property that allows you to apply such a style to all RadTileViewItem.Headers.

    I attached a sample project where I modified the default TileViewItem HeaderStyle by changing the tooltips of the Minimize/Maximize RadToggleButton. Please have a look at it and let me know if it helps.

    you can change the tooltip of the buttons(maximize, minimize) 
    using localization... like the gridview menus... using a resource file?

    Hello Luis,

    You can use the built-in localization mechanism in Silverlight which provides the possibility to set the TileView in one of the languages, which we support - more information you can find in our help article- Localization.  
    If you want to translate it in another language, you should use the CustomLocalization Manager, as it is described in the same article.

    Please let us know in case any further assistance is needed.
