Hi Admin,
We are using TileView control inorder to show multiple contents at a time. When we add elements to the TileView it automaticaly adjusts the size all of the elements .But we need a fixed size for all the elements ,which we can put at design time .Can it be possible .Because of the automatic resizing of the elements ,when there are large number of elements ,sometimes the content of the control are not visible properly and this is a issue for the client. Can you please guide us how to solve this issue.I am attaching a image with this mail.Please find it.I have attached tow images. I don't know how to remove the attachment.Please look at the second image,where i have put some comment.
Thanks
Kalyan

Hello kalyan,

 You can change the size of the restored items with the RowHeight and ColumnWidth properties(they are set to "*" by default) and the size of the minimized items with the MinimizedColumnWidth and MinimizedRowHeight properties. You can also take a look at this example which shows you how to customize the sizes and the layout of your RadTileView.
If you need further assistance feel free to ask.

Hi Zarko,
I tried my best ,but could not find the properties RowHeight and ColumnWidth. Here I want to know in which version the example was built. May be it is buit with a latest one. We are using Q3 2010 SP1.

Hi kalyan,

 Yes, the properties that I mentioned in my previous post are available from the Q1 2011 Release. Unfortunately in the older versions you can't change the default size of the items.
If you have more questions please feel free to ask. 

All the best,

Hi Zarko,
We have already purchased Q3 2010 .To update with Q1 2011 ,do we need to buy it again or we can update with the newer version with out any cost.If we have to go with the older version,Do you have any other way so that our requirement can be carried out.

Thanks

Hello kalyan,

Could you please open a new support ticket and send us the license holder's e-mail? You can open the ticket under the account of the license holder and we will check whether there is something wrong with your account. Please paste a link to this forum thread so that we will better understand the matter. Also, keep in mind that if you purchased a Developer license without subscription you will not receive new major versions as part of the Developer license. You can refer to this page for more details:
http://www.telerik.com/purchase/individual/silverlight.aspx

As for achieving the task with the version you already have - I'm afraid this won't be possible because the sizing logic is build-in and you can't change it. You can try to set the MaxColumns/ MaxRows property because if you have, lets say, only 2 columns your items will be wider but their hight will be lower.
If you have further questions don't hesitate to ask.

Best wishes,
Zarko
