    I have been working with the radTileView.  It's going to do what I need it to do in most cases. However, when there are only a few items the RadTileViewItems take the full space proportionally.  It doesn't matter if I set the TileState="Minimized" or TileState="Restored" and the RadFluidContentControl ContentChangeMode="Manual" and State="Small". The controls do appear in the proper state, however the border of the control takes the remaining space causing the controls to be spaced evenly in the area. Even if I manually set the maxHeight and maxWidth of the radTileViewItem.


    Is there a way to cause the tiles to be top left justified and leave blank space to the bottom and right when minimized or restored?


    The other thing is that when I have a radTileView item maximized and the minimizedItemsPosition="Right" the same kind of spacing issue occurs. I would like them to appear like they do in the "Tile States" BMW section of this link - http://www.telerik.com/products/silverlight/tileview.aspx


    I have also tried this with the sample code by adjusting the number of BMW tileViewItems and the size of their container.

    I would like to use it more like a list box with very small items taking advantage of the eye candy moving them around and the maximize to edit the information in the control.

    Thank you for your help.

    Hello Rick Knicely,

    Please accept my apology for the delayed response.

    Unfortunately, by design the RadTileViewItems are displayed evenly in the available space defined by the RadTileView width. However, we have previously received similar feature request and you can vote for it in our Public  Issue Tracking system thus increasing its priority.

    As for your other question, you can use the MinimizedHeight property of the RadTileViewItem to control the height of the minimized items. I have prepared an example demonstrating how you can do that. Please take a look at it and let me know if it works for you.

    Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans? Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed? Explore the Telerik Public Issue Tracking system and vote to affect the priority of the items.

    I also noticed that you can only have one row of minimized items when one of the items is maximized. Unfortunately this is not going to work for what I am trying to do.  I was trying to take advantage of the multiple layouts with 20-100 items, What I really need is a list box that works like the RadTileView to allow you to maximize one of the items.

    I ended up using the RadWrapPanel and an ItemsControl template for the binding.  I am going to have to implement the Maximize in a different manor.

    Thank you for your help :)
