Hi all

Is it possible to have multiple RadTileViewItem with different skins in the same RadTileView?

Note: The application is "submitted" to a large Metro Skin type through the instructions in VB.NET:

         StyleManager.ApplicationTheme = New MetroTheme
         RadSpellChecker.WindowSettings.Theme = StyleManager.ApplicationTheme

In advance, thanks for the help you can give me ...

Hello Romell,
Could you please specify what exactly do you mean by different skins? Do you mean different Themes or different styles? You can't set different themes to the tileViewItems in one tileView but you can set them different styles.
I've attached a very simple project which shows how you can change the header background of the items so could you please examine it and if you have further questions feel free to ask.

Thank you for your prompt response,

I've certainly chosen the wrong words to explain.

The application is subject to a large MetroTheme through lines of code :

         StyleManager.ApplicationTheme = New MetroTheme
          RadSpellChecker.WindowSettings.Theme = StyleManager.ApplicationTheme

And it requires the application still using this theme, allow the colors to change RadTileViewItem but keeping the same style.

The example works fine, thanks ... but the elements are created at runtime, how I can perform this through code???

In advance, thank Zarko

Hi Romell,
If you're using business objects in your RadTileView you could use the ItemContainerStyleSelector.
I've updated the attached project so you should check it out and if you need further assistance feel free to ask.

Hi Zarko,

Let me explain.....what steps have made

- I created the class "MyStyleSelector" in my project and took it to VB.NET (which is the default)
- The class was included in the proyect
- I omitted the section in the XML: ItemsSource = "{Binding Items}" because the application generates at runtime TileViewItems.
- I omitted the class "MainViewModel" For the same reason as above.

Furthermore,

- I included in the main form as indicated between the tags: <Grid.Resources>

And here I am presented with the following error:

Error 1 The type 'local:MyStyleSelector' was not found. Verify that you are not missing an assembly reference and that all referenced assemblies have been built. C:\Users\......\Visual Studio 2010\DemoWPF\DemoWPF\DemoWPF 
\Main.xaml 131 38 DemoWPF


I have several questions regarding the behavior of WPF controls ... or ...

1- If I can change the colors or style of an issue at runtime, why should I preset values ​​Tagged <Grid.Resources> and <Style among others? Is this necessary?

2- What should the lines indicated above error if the class is included in the project and the names match?


Additional data,
-WPF Web Browser
-VB.NET
-Framework 3.5


In advance, thanks for the support you can give me ....

Hello Romell,
From your description I guess that you may have forgot to include the "local" namespace:
xmlns:local="clr-namespace:TestWPF"
(instead of TestWPF you should place your project's name)
As for the styles - what exactly do you mean by "application generates at runtime TileViewItems"? Does this mean that you don't use business items and manually create containers (RadTileViewItems) in code-behind and add them to the RadTileView's Items collection? If this is the case then you'd have to change the styleSelector or you could not use it at all, because you can manually set the desired style:
Dim newItem As New RadTileViewItem()
newItem.Content = "Put some content"
newItem.Header = "Item " & Convert.ToString(Me.tileView.Items.Count)
Select Case Me.tileView.Items.Count Mod 4
    Case 0
        newItem.Style = TryCast(Me.Resources("redHeader"), Style)
        Exit Select
    Case 1
        newItem.Style = TryCast(Me.Resources("blueHeader"), Style)
        Exit Select
    Case 2
        newItem.Style = TryCast(Me.Resources("greenHeader"), Style)
        Exit Select
    Case 3
        newItem.Style = TryCast(Me.Resources("purpleHeader"), Style)
        Exit Select
End Select
 
Me.tileView.Items.Add(newItem)
End Sub
I've update the attached project so could you please examine it and if you have further questions feel free to ask.

All the best,
