LiveTile update problem


  • Hi, I start to develop my first universal app, to learn and get practice about.

    I think eveything is ok, but I have trouble with LiveTiles (LT) updaing, I have following code to bind and update LT (for simplyfiing there's only WinApp code, but WP is simmilar, with same problem):

    Protected Overrides Sub OnWindowCreated(args As WindowCreatedEventArgs)
            'PLACE 1
            Dim tileXml_150x150 As XmlDocument = TileUpdateManager.GetTemplateContent(TileTemplateType.TileSquare150x150Text04)
            Dim tileTextAttributes_150x150 As XmlNodeList = tileXml_150x150.GetElementsByTagName("text")
            tileTextAttributes_150x150(0).InnerText = DateTime.Now.ToString("dd-MM-yyyy")
            Dim tileNotification_150x150 As New TileNotification(tileXml_150x150)
            Dim tileXml_310x150 As XmlDocument = TileUpdateManager.GetTemplateContent(TileTemplateType.TileWide310x150BlockAndText01)
            Dim tileTextAttributes_310x150 As XmlNodeList = tileXml_310x150.GetElementsByTagName("text")
            tileTextAttributes_310x150(0).InnerText = DateTime.Now.ToString("dd-MM-yyyy")
            Dim tileNotification_310x150 As New TileNotification(tileXml_310x150)
            Dim tileXml_310x310 As XmlDocument = TileUpdateManager.GetTemplateContent(TileTemplateType.TileSquare310x310TextList01)
            Dim tileTextAttributes_310x310 As XmlNodeList = tileXml_310x310.GetElementsByTagName("text")
            tileTextAttributes_310x310(0).InnerText = DateTime.Now.ToString("dd-MM-yyyy")
            Dim tileNotification_310x310 As New TileNotification(tileXml_310x310)
            'PLACE 2
            'PLACE 3
        End Sub

    with this code LT (I don't remember exactly) tile updates only once

    if a place to PLACE 3 code


    then LT is updated correctly, but next day, it have old date and if I open app, it updates LT, but "on other side (flipped LT)" stay old date and LT flip new and old data

    if I try to do this on PLACE 1


    then LT is updated once at app start, but after while, next refresh data comes out, only stay a image app and no more show data

    and for last, if i add (remove clear (place 1)) this to PLACE 2:

    tileNotification_150x150.ExpirationTime = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(1)
    tileNotification_310x150.ExpirationTime = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(1)
    tileNotification_310x310.ExpirationTime = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(1)

    Tile does same as with clear, only once update and the show app image and no show data.

    My question is, how to make LT update in interval (now i need only at start of new day) and have only actual data (no flip old)?

    Thank you for help and ideas.

  • Hi IssueKiller,

    thanks for reply, but still no change.

    with expiration data shows only once, then only app image

    with clear data shows only once and stay old, only refresh only if i kill app and start again

    without expiration and clear tile switching previos and new data, but not refresh and after while it switching 2 old data

    Have anybody any other solution? Another tiles from other work perfectly, for example clock (how it works?).

    Thanks too much for replies.
