Tiles on App Main Page - Is this possible? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I have a question concerning tiles in Metro Style Apps. I would like to use tiles (or something similar to it) on the App Main Page and use them as navigation buttons. I would like to achieve that when my App will start, after the splash screen on the main page there will be several items present - which will look and feel very similar to tiles templates. Clicking on them will navigate the user to the appropriate page. Is there any build-in control that will allow me to achieve such functionality? Because AFAIK the Tile class may be used only for the App Tile. Maybe I should use a UserDefined Control with appropriate custom template (Rectangle, Button, StackPanel with some Image and Text etc.)

    Thank you very much for help!
