Custom tile template RRS feed

  • Question

  • Although there are quite a lot of templates to choose from, I wonder if its possible to create a total custom template and style it myself?

    It seems the "template" attribute in the visual refers to a CSS setting Windows/Startmenu already knows about. So I assume there is no way to provide custom styling and therefore no custom XML template for a tile?

  • Hi Phil,

    You cannot create a custom template.

  • Not exactly, you can create a image adding all of your information you need into, and set it as the tile with image field. NOTE, you can't render a image in .cs , you should first render it in XAML .
