    I am creating a demo that uses the tile view control and I would like to make it almost invisible apart from a few controls in the header like the minimise/maximise icon.

    To achieve this I have removed the boarder and made the background of the tileview item transparent. I was hoping that there would be an easy way to make the background

    of the header transparent but when setting the background to transparent it doesn’t make any difference to the header. Is there a way to make the background header transparent

    without having to create a new template in blend and also maintaining the minimise/maximize icons? (I am looking to achieve this in XAML at design time as I am using MvvM)

    Kind regards

    Hi James,

     Please find attached the project in which I've edit the default HeaderStyle of the TileViewItems and set the Background to Transparent. Note that the HeaderStyle applies both to RadTileView and RadTileViewItems.
    Please let us know if this approach fits in your scenario.

    All the best,
