Queuing tiles - how to adjust rotate rate

    Question

  • With Metro Style App tiles, we can "queue" up to 5 notifications to be displayed on a tile so that one is shown after the other in a round-robin fashion.

    Is there a way we can adjust the rate, i.e., the time one notification is given to stay on the foreground, when they rotate.

    No, you cannot change the rate (this is controlled by the system).  Is there a compelling reason to have the rate different for your app, or were you just asking out of curiosity?

  • Thanks jpsanders,

    I just observed the rotate rate of different tiles (tiles of the apps built-in in the developer preview) are different, though slightly. After your reply, I guess what I'm seeing can be a situation where the difference comes from the timing differences occur in a low priority thread and time calculation differences (I presume tile rotation implementation is running on a low prio thread).  No, I don't have a compelling reason, it was mostly out of curiosity. But thanks much for explaining otherwise i'd be pulling my hair on this one :-)
