Create tiled displays and navigation hubs with ComponentOne Tiles™ for WinRT XAML. Tiles make it easy to replicate the Windows 8 start screen experience in your own app. Get several different tile controls that support sliding and flipping animations with live updates. Combine tiles with different containers to achieve endless layout possibilities.
Create Flipping and Sliding Tiles
With the C1FlipTile and C1SlideTile controls you can create tiles that display alternating content with a sliding or flipping animation. Simply design your template and provide content to the control. The updates and animations are handled automatically.
Familiar Windows 8 Live Tile Behavior
ComponentOne Tiles have been specially designed for Windows Store and Windows Phone apps. Each tile control exhibits the same interactive behavior as the start screen live tiles on Windows 8 and Windows Phone. This means your app will present familiar behavior to the user and you don’t have to lift a finger (except to select a tile).
ComponentOne Tiles can flip, slide, and show updated “live” content. You can easily control the update interval using the static C1TileService class and the UpdateInterval property.
Host in Any Container
ComponentOne Tiles can be hosted in any ItemsControl containers such as C1TileListBox, C1WrapPanel, or the standard GridView and ListBox controls. Thus you can use C1Tiles in data bound scenarios. Each container presents a different way to arrange multiple C1Tiles together giving you endless combinations and possibilities.
Support for Different Sizes
Not all tiles must be created equally. Combine tiles of different types and sizes together to create displays uniquely catered to your application.
