Wide secondary tile development issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Here's the scenario using the SDKSecondaryTile sample app :

    - app creates a wide secondary tile (add a wide logo to the constructor)
    - user confirms, wide tile is pinned
    - unpin tile from start menu
    - change the code to remove the wide logo (create a square tile)
    - run the app again and pin tile : wide black tile is pinned - tile still in wide format even though wide logo removed. Button "Smaller" not showing

    You're then stuck with the black wide tile, even if you uninstall the app and then redeploy it and repin the secondary tile. Only solution is to go back and add the wide logo to the constructor, then run and repin, go to start menu and switch back to "Smaller", then uninstall and redeploy app.

  • Thanks for reporting this.  I will file a bug for this issue.  Thankfully this will only be a problem in development and your customers will never see this issue.
