Similar to the post here, I am looking to next a control instead a RadTileView content template.  I can get the RadTreeListView grid headers to appear, but I can't get the grid to databind to a collections object.  Eventually, I will need this to bind to dynamic data, but for now I am just working on a proof on concept.  (I'll actually want to display in the large content template, but that's another issue.)  My xaml is:

<UserControl x:Class="TileView.MainPage"
        mc:Ignorable="d"     d:DesignHeight="500" d:DesignWidth="800" >
        <DataTemplate x:Key="MDSHeaderTemplate">
            <TextBlock Text="{Binding ModelCode}"></TextBlock>
        <DataTemplate x:Key="MDSTemplate">
            <telerik:RadFluidContentControl ContentChangeMode="Manual" State="{Binding ModelCode}">
                        <telerik:RadTreeListView x:Name="RadTreeListView" HierarchyColumnIndex="1" ItemsSource="{Binding}">
                                <telerik:TreeListViewTableDefinition ItemsSource="{Binding ModelCode}">
                                <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding ModelName}" Header="Model Name" />
                                <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding TailNumber}" Header="Tail Number" />
                                <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding Mods}" Header="Mods" />
                    <TextBlock Text="This is the content"></TextBlock>
                        <TextBlock Text="This is the large content"></TextBlock>
        <Style TargetType="telerik:RadTileView">
            <Setter Property="ContentTemplate" Value="{StaticResource MDSTemplate}"></Setter>
            <Setter Property="ItemTemplate" Value="{StaticResource MDSHeaderTemplate}"></Setter>
    <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">
        <telerik:RadTileView HorizontalAlignment="Left" x:Name="RadTileView" VerticalAlignment="Top" Height="500" Width="800"
                             MinimizedItemsPosition="Right" ItemsSource="{Binding}" MaximizeMode="One">

In my code behind, I am trying to bind the data as follows:

Public Sub New()
    Me.RadTileView.ItemsSource = MDS_Service.GetMDS()
    Me.RadTreeListView.ItemsSource = MDS_Service.GetMDS()
End Sub

I get the error that "RadTreeListView is not a member of 'TileView.MainPage'."  (Where TileVIew is the name of my project and MainPage the name of my file.)  If you could point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it.

Hi Nicole,

 You get an exception because you can't access (by name or key) FrameworkElements that are defined in a DataTemplate. Instead you should bind your RadTileView to a collection of items and each item should have a subcollection of other items for its RadTreeListView. Also could you tell me what's the type of ModelCode variable, because I noticed that you use it as a string(Text="{Binding ModelCode}"), as a collection(ItemsSource={Binding ModelCode}) and as a FluidContentControlState(State="{Binding ModelCode}")? 
I've created a sample project for you so could you please examine it and if you have further questions feel free to ask?

All the best,
the Telerik team
