    I want to use C# classes to query the database and create a data table and then set it as my DataSource for my TileList. However, after some debugging it seems that TileList does not have a "OnNeedDataSource" attribute to run a method that will query the data table. I know that I can set the DataSourceID, but I prefer to do it via C# code. This is what it looks like

    <telerik:RadTileList runat="server" ID="PurchaseTileList" Width="900px"
                        <CommonTileBinding TileType="RadTextTile" Shape="Square" DataTitleTextField="ProductDescription" DataNameField="ProductID" />
                            <div class="productNamePeek"><%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"PName") %></div>
                            <telerik:RadTextTile runat="server" Shape="Square" Font-Size="18px" Font-Bold="true"
                                <Title Text=""></Title>

    My TileListPurchase_NeedDataSource will set Data Source to a created DataTable (This, however, is never run)

    and my TileListPurchase_OnDataBound currently doesn't do much seeing as I'm not sure how to set these values for the tile.

    Hi Jason,

    In order to achieve your scenario please try to bind the RadTileList in the Page_Load event. Please have a look into the following help documentation for further information.

    From what I understand, I just set the datasource in page_load instead. That sounds perfect. Thank you.
