Create tiled displays and navigation hubs
Tiles make it easy to replicate the Windows 8 start screen experience in your own app. Get two different tile controls that support sliding animations and live updates. Combine tiles with different containers to achieve endless layout possibilities.
Create Sliding Tiles
Using the ComponentOne SlideTile control, you can create tiles that display alternating content with a sliding animation. You can also provide a collection of any number of items. Simply design your template and provide content to the control. The updates and animations are handled automatically.
Familiar Windows 8 Live Tile Behavior
The ComponentOne Tile controls have been inspired from the Modern-UI style commonly seen in 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 TileService class and the UpdateInterval property.
Host in Any Container
Because the Tiles control can be hosted in any ItemsControl containers, like TileListBox or the standard WrapPanel and ListBox controls, you can use Tiles in data-bound scenarios. Each container presents a different way to arrange multiple Tiles together, giving you endless combinations and possibilities.
Support for Different Sizes
Tiles don't need to be the same type and size. Combine tiles of different types and sizes together to create displays uniquely catered to your application.
