Tile Control

Overview


TileControl is the navigation control, inspired by the Windows Modern UI. The Tile Control's primary building blocks are tiles - informative boxes that due to their size and geometry are capable of presenting much more information than simple buttons and more suitable to be used with touch-enabled devices. Not only can tiles be static elements, they can also be turned into live tiles. Live tiles change their content in an infinite loop with an optional animation effect that follows a content change. The following animation illustrates a customized Tile Control.

To learn more about this component refer to the links below.

  • Tile Item Structure
    Learn how to build the content of your tiles. You will learn about tile control elements, how to arrange elements across the parent tile, anchor them to each other and apply built-in tile templates.

  • Tile Animation
    This article is dedicated to Tile Frame Animation feature and demonstrates how to create live tiles, shape your animation by customizing its speed and visual effects, mix animated tile content with static tile elements and manage tile animation in code.

  • Design-Time Customization
    Learn about rich design-time capabilities and on-form access that allows you to add, modify and remove tile groups, tiles, elements and frames.
