I have a tile view something like what is below. How to I set the colors of the tiles in this scenario?

<telerik:RadTileView Margin="12" Name="DashboardRadTileView" ItemsSource="{Binding}" Grid.Row="2" BorderBrush="{DynamicResource BorderBrush}" Background="{DynamicResource PanelGradientBrush}" Foreground="Black" MinimizedItemsPosition="Bottom" Padding="12">
    <telerik:RadTileView.ItemTemplate>
        <DataTemplate>
            <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=Description}" />
        </DataTemplate>
    </telerik:RadTileView.ItemTemplate>
    <telerik:RadTileView.ContentTemplate>
        <DataTemplate>
            <StackPanel>
                <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=Text}"/>
            </StackPanel>
        </DataTemplate>
    </telerik:RadTileView.ContentTemplate>
</telerik:RadTileView>

Hi Arthur Vanderbilt,

In the attached file you can find an example of  setting the background of  tiles. However, at the moment there is no convenient way of changing the background of the tile header, and currently this is only possible by editing the ControlTemplate. We will probably add a new property that will alow easier customization of the tile header. Please visit the link below for more details on how to edit the template:

I hope I was able to help. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Kind regards,

Hi,

Do you know if this is now included in the newer versions of 2010?  I am looking also to change the tile header background.

Hello Julio,

We've decided to ease the process by adding a new property called HeaderStyle. This property will be of type Style and will allow you to set various properties to the Border that represents the header in RadTileViewItem (Background etc.). I've added an item in out public issue tracking system called "TileView: Add HeaderStyle property to RadTileViewItem". You will be able to track and vote for this item tomorrow the latest. We will try to include this feature in one of the following internal builds but I cannot bind to a specific release date, therefore I'd suggest you track the PITS item.

Sincerely yours,
Kiril Stanoev
