    I'm trying to create a tile user control.

    I need to be able to have tiles have three different sizes with drag/drop support.  Preferably something like a two column format.
    Size 1 = single column.  Size 2 = column span.  Size 3 = column span and double height.

    This is very similar to the TileList, but I cannot get the TileList to work though because I cannot change the width/height of the tiles enough.  I need the small tile size to be as big as the quadruples are showing up and I need the quadruples to take up half the screen.  I wish their was a way that you could set the default width/height for each tile type. I would also greatly prefer it if I could scroll vertically instead of horizontally.

    I have also tried to use the TileView, but it doesn't handle the dynamic re-sizing of tiles well.  Namely in that I would want a tile to span multiple columns.  And to have an easy way of increasing the height of a single tile/row and not the rest (to achieve the third size).

    Dock doesn't work for our use case.  There will probably be too many tiles to reasonably dock anything.

    Am I missing anything for any of these controls where I could modify any of them to work for my use case?

    RadTileList exposes the TilePlaceHolderSide property. You may use this in order to control the side length of a single square tile. Doubles and Quadrupules will respect this property as well and adjust proportionally.
