    I have a grid that contains in one row a RadTileView control. i set a MouseLeftButtonDown event to the grid but when i make a click in the tileview area it does not shoot. Then i put the same event in the RadTileView control but did not work neither.
    When i put the event on the tleviewItem it works correctly but what i need is to start this event when somebody click in an empty area.
    Any solutions to this?
    Sry for my english.

    Hi javier,

     The problem is that the RadTileView handles the MouseLeftButtonDown event. If you want to be able to handle it too you'll have to add a handler for it in code behind like this:

    this.AddHandler(MouseLeftButtonDownEvent, new MouseButtonEventHandler(OnClick), true);
    And in the OnClick method you can check if the click was inside some of the RadTileViewItems by checking if the original source has a parent of type RadTileViewItem like this:
    private void OnClick(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
        var originalSource = e.OriginalSource as FrameworkElement; = (originalSource.ParentOfType<RadTileViewItem>() == null).ToString();
    I've attached a sample project with this behavior and if you need further assistance feel free to ask.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
