Hi There,

I have started using "TileView" control, and used "Demo" code as base to start from.
Now, "Demo" code is very neat and clean and easy to understand.

I am adding "TileViewItem" dynamically, and more items i add into "TileView", the width and height of the "TileViewItem" changes automatically.
What i need is, I have to make the Height and Width of the "TileViewItem" fixed, so that contents don't cut off, and instead show a scrollbar to scroll thru tileview.

Any idea on how to achieve this?

Cheers,
Bhavin

Hi Bhavin,

Currently the RadTileView control does not have an internal scrollviewer which would allow the behavior you are after. You are our first customer inquiring about such a functionality, but we will certainly consider implementing it if there are more people requesting it.

What you can do in the moment is a not-so-elegant workaround: wrap a TileView with a hard-coded size in a ScrollViewer and increase the TileView size as needed when you add new tiles. I know that's not a nice solution, but it's a possible way to achieve your goal with the current version of the control.

I hope I was able to help. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Good Morning Tihomir,

Would it be possible to get a confirmation that this feature will be added in the next major version and if so would it also be possible to get a ball park estimated date for that release?

Jeremy Brown

Hello Jeremy,

The feature is planned but our current priorities do not allow us to promise that it will be available with the 2010 Q1 release (mid-March).

By the way, you can use our new Public Issue Tracking System to keep track of bugs and feature requests. Any feedback you might have about it is welcome too.

I tried to find this feature request in the Public Issue Tracking system but was unable to.

I would like to be able to fix the TileViewItem's Width and Height as well. (I need to develop a user configurable dashboard and the widgets will have a fixed size).

Can you tell me when this feature will be available?

Can I also suggest that a property be added that would allow the method used to reorganise the tiles to be specified? For example "ColumnsOnly" would only shuffle items down within the column being inserted into. However this would also mean that gaps would have to be allowed. E.g.
A B C
D E F

If G moved between B and E then
A B C
D G F
   E

If this is sensible then I will raise it in the issue tracker. Or should I be using drag and drop to 3 lists instead?
    
Many thanks,
Jason

Hello Jason,

Thank you for your suggestions. I've created work items for them and tomorrow they will be available for voting and should be implemented.
About the lists, you'd better create custom panel that arrange the items as you want to and enable dragging in it. You can do and you idea with lists as well.
If you have further questions please contact us.
