    Hello, can you give me any idea how the "Close" button can be implemented within the header of the item. We need removing items as well adding them ;)

    Hello Denis Vuyka,

    Here is a sample code:
    <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot">
                <DataTemplate x:Key="TileViewItemHeaderTemplate">
                    <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
                        <Button Click="Button_Click_1" VerticalAlignment="Center" Content="X"></Button>
                        <TextBlock Text="{Binding}" Margin="5" VerticalAlignment="Center" />
                <telerikNavigation:RadTileView x:Name="RadTileView1">
                    <telerikNavigation:RadTileViewItem Header="Item1" HeaderTemplate="{StaticResource TileViewItemHeaderTemplate}" ></telerikNavigation:RadTileViewItem>
                    <telerikNavigation:RadTileViewItem Header="Item2" HeaderTemplate="{StaticResource TileViewItemHeaderTemplate}"></telerikNavigation:RadTileViewItem>

    and code behind:

    private void Button_Click_1(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) 
               RadTileViewItem itemToRemove = (sender as Button).ParentOfType<RadTileViewItem>(); 
               if (itemToRemove != null

    All the best,

    Hello Valentin,

    I tried the same steps mentioned in your reply about implementing Close Button in Tile.

    I am getting an error when i try to close the tile. The difference in your and my RadTileView is, I am adding tiles dynamically.

    Below a code snippet of my work:
                //Add Tile Dynamically 
                DataTemplate dtempClose = (LayoutRoot.Resources["CloseButtonTemplate"as DataTemplate); 
                for (int i = 0; i < numberOfTileViews; i++) 
                    RadTileView1.Items.Add(new RadTileViewItem() 
                        Header = String.Format("TileItem {0}", i), 
                        HeaderTemplate = dtempClose, 
                        Content = new MyTileView() { Text = String.Format("Hello {0}", i)} 
            //Close Tile 
            private void CloseTile(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) 
                RadTileViewItem itemToRemove = (sender as Button).ParentOfType<RadTileViewItem>(); 
                if (itemToRemove != null

    Error: The given key was not present in the dictionary.

    Please guide me in this regards.

    Hi Akku,

    Sorry for the late response!

    I tried to reproduce the problem with the code you sent, but it is all working on our end. Can you send us the complete project in a support ticket so we can investigate where the problem comes from.

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

    Sincerely yours,
    the Telerik team
