Custom live tile for universal app

    Question

  • Hi everybody,

    Is there any way I can create a custom image in the background task and use it as a live tile for a universal app? I have seen a sample using XamlRenderingBackgroundTask class and C++ but only for windows phone and not for metro app. Thanks in advance.

  • Yes you can create a custom image in the background task. You just cannot use Xaml to do so. You can use rendering techniques such as Direct2D which aren't dependant on a foreground renderer.
