    I have a page with eight square tiles, two rows by eight across.

    I would like to animate the tiles, but not nearly as much as your demo page.

    In particular, I'd like one tile to fire off at 5000 and close after 5000.

    And then at about 15,000 another one, and so forth all the way down.

    I have tried staggering the ShowIntervals, but the earliest ones repeat too quickly, as I they repeat on that shorter interval.

    Is there a way to introduce a delayed start for each tile when the page loads?

    Alternatively a quiet period, say show at 5,000 for 5,000, and then wait for 100,000 ticks, or whatever?

    Hello Tomica,

    There are no such built-in delays but you can consider using the RadTile's client-side API to reset/modify timers when needed: You can get a reference to a given tile by its name, for example, and reset/change its timers as required (the methods you can use include set_peekShowInterval(value), set_peekCloseDelay(value), showPeekTemplate(), startPeekShowInterval()).
    If you manage to create such functionality and post it in the code-library section we will gladly award your efforts with Telerik points.
