Windows 8 - Create 310x310 Live Tile

    Question

  • The following link specifies that we can design 310 x 310 live tile. 

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/windows.ui.notifications.tiletemplatetype?cs-save-lang=1&cs-lang=javascript#code-snippet-1

    In the app manifest , we do not have an option to specify a 310 x 310 tile. The two options which we can see in VS 2012 is 150 x 150 and 310 x 150. Where we do specify 310 x 310 ???

  • Hey there Dinesh!

    As far as I know, the 310 x 310 live tile can only be created in Visual Studio 2013 Preview for windows 8.1. The 310 x 310 tile size was introduced in windows 8.1 and so can only be created in VS 2013 Preview. You can grab VS 2013 over here: http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/eng/2013-downloads

  • Mrappbrain is correct. Large tiles (310x310) are new to Windows 8.1.
