    Using the  XmlDataProvider I'm able to bind all the data to the correct elements. Works great in the MainWindow Xaml.  When I Put the TileView control in a page xaml using the same XmlDataProvider I'am able to bind all the elements except the image. I tried using a Imageconverter, but no luck. Is there a trick to get this to bind or I'm missing something?

    Any thoughts?


    <local:ImageConverter x:Key="ImageConverter" />

    <Image x:Name="listImg" Source="{Binding XPath=EmpImage, Converter={StaticResource ImageConverter}}"  Stretch="Uniform"/>



    public class ImageConverter : IValueConverter





    public object Convert(object value, Type targetType, object parameter,


    CultureInfo culture)


    String xml =


    "<Tables>" + "<Table>" + ((XmlElement)value).InnerXml.ToString() + "</Table>" + "</Tables>";


    XmlDocument XDoc =


    new XmlDocument();





    // XmlNodeList oXmlNode = XDoc.GetElementsByTagName("Station");




    //XmlNode node = XDoc.SelectSingleNode("RecipeName");



    XmlNode oXnode = XDoc.SelectSingleNode(




    value = oXnode.LastChild.Value;

    BitmapImage image =


    new BitmapImage();




    if (value != null)









    image.CacheOption = BitmapCacheOption.OnLoad;

    image.CreateOptions = BitmapCreateOptions.IgnoreImageCache;

    image.UriSource =


    new Uri((string)value, UriKind.Absolute);









    image =








    return image;





    public object ConvertBack(object value, Type targetType, object parameter,


    CultureInfo culture)




    throw new Exception("The method or operation is not implemented.");

    Hi Rick,

    Where are the images stored? Do you see any exceptions being thrown in the Output window? If the images are part of the wpf project, what is their Build Action? I've attached a sample project with which I try to mimic your scenario. Have a look at it and let me know if it helps. If you can send me a sample project demonstrating the issue, I'd be better able to assist you.

    All the best,
