    Is it possible, in this first version, to have a single vertical column of tiles? 

    E.g.  I would like 5 'tiles' stacked vertically in a 1x5 grid layout.

    I cannot find a way to stop the tiles being added horizontally.

    The documentation states :
    "Tiles are ordered in columns, where each subsequent tile from the control declaration is placed below the previous one."  but this does not seem to be the case, each subsequent tile is placed to the right of the previous one.

    I know this is the v1.0 of this control, but I'm confused.

    the only interim solution I have found is to have a different RadTileList object for each item, with TileRows=1.  It works. Is there a better way?

    If your tiles are wide, this is simples. Make TileRows a large number, e.g. 999, and you get a single column of tiles (provided you don't have an even larger number of tiles, in which case you need help!)

    Hi guys,

    You can count the tiles on the server and set the appropriate Height and TileRows properties of the control, e.g.:
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        int tilesCount = RadTileList1.GetAllTiles().Count;
        int height = tilesCount  * 160; //a tile is 150px tall and we add some for the padding between them
        RadTileList1.Height = height;
        RadTileList1.TileRows = tilesCount; //TileRows defauilts to 3

    The tiles are ordered in columns, but as once the TileRows limit is reached a new row is created.

    Another point of interest is that this will work with Wide tiles only, the concept of the control is that each column is as wide as the Wide tile, so two Square tiles will fit there every time. Thus, a single column layout is possible only with Wide tiles. If Square tiles are used the height and the tileRows should be divided by 2 and there will be two columns always.
