Now I have different colors as rowbackground depending on value in "category". but how can I use images (horizontal tiled) as background for my rows?

How I do it now:
 <Style x:Key="GridRowStyle" TargetType="telerik:GridViewRow" 
                <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding Path=category}" Value="1">  
            <Setter Property="Background" Value="#FFFF88" /> 
//In grid I use:  
RowStyle="{StaticResource GridRowStyle}"

Hi Kennet,

You can use the following XAML to set an image brush as a background of the row, however the tiling is not working as intended and we will have to have a look at it. For now I suggest you use a wider image than you originaly intended to get results as close as you expect.

Here is the XAML:
<ImageBrush x:Key="RowBackgrondImage" ImageSource="icon.png" Opacity="1" Stretch="Fill" TileMode="Tile">
                    <ScaleTransform CenterX="0.5" CenterY="0.5" ScaleX="1" ScaleY="1"/>
                    <SkewTransform AngleX="0" AngleY="0" CenterX="0.5" CenterY="0.5"/>
                    <RotateTransform Angle="0" CenterX="0.5" CenterY="0.5"/>
                    <TranslateTransform X="0" Y="0"/>
        <Style TargetType="{x:Type telerik:GridViewRow}">
            <Setter Property="Background" Value="{DynamicResource RowBackgrondImage}" />
