How to change the branding of tile? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I want to change the branding of the tile, in the tile template, I just find three type of the branding: logo, name, none.

    Is it possible to  add one type, such as big brand?

    I mean :

    in wide tile, show an image with the big logo on the bottom,

    meantime, in the square tile, show an image with the small logo.

    , does anyone know how to do this?

  • This should already be possible according to the documentation:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh781198.aspx

    If both a square and wide logo image are provided in the manifest, your app's tile will default to a wide tile when it is installed. Tile notifications sent to your app can use both wide templates and square templates. It is a best practice to include both square and wide templates in a single tile notification because the user can change your tile's size at any time and only notifications that match its current size will be displayed. For instance, if you include only a wide template in a notification and the user has chosen to display the square tile, the default square image will be shown instead of the notification content.

  • with branding all you get is logo, name and none just as documentation sugests. You can't even combine logo and name, something we wanted to do, but alas you can't. So no, you can't add new type of branding.
