Hello, 

I'm trying to adapt the DataBinding TileView sample to my requirements.  I'm creating a dashboard-like view that lists a selection of objects to edit/delete/copy. With the data binding sample and the virtualization sample I was able to come pretty close to our design of a tile view of objects to be edited\copied\deleted.

 My current issues are this:

  •  I haven’t been able to determine how to have the column/row count grow as the window size grows; currently the tiles change size to fit the window based on the set row\col as the window grows and shrinks.  I would really like the tile to stay a set size and have them lay out  to fill the screen. Is this possible with this control?  
  •  As an alternative I quickly looked at the CardView but haven’t implemented any code yet. The bonus is the built in filtering/sorting/grouping. I need to be able to filter/sort/group on data that is not show on the actual card item, but can be part of the data model for each card -  is this possible?

 See attached image for a sample of what I am trying to do. Would a CardView control be more suitable? I would like to keep the filter combo box aligned with the right edge of the tiles for visual appeal. 

Thanks!

Hi Sheri, 

Thanks for your patience. 

Query-1:  I haven’t been able to determine how to have the column/row count grow as the window size grows; currently the tiles change size to fit the window based on the set row\col as the window grows and shrinks.  I would really like the tile to stay a set size and have them lay out  to fill the screen. Is this possible with this control? 
 
In TileView control, once row/column is initialized it cannot be changed dynamically. Row and column count remains the same based on number of tiles and it is not possible to change the row/column count dynamically based on window size. 

Query-2:  As an alternative I quickly looked at the CardView but haven’t implemented any code yet. The bonus is the built in filtering/sorting/grouping. I need to be able to filter/sort/group on data that is not show on the actual card item, but can be part of the data model for each card -  is this possible?  

In CardView, cards will be arranged horizontally based on window size. When window is resized either horizontally or vertically cards will be arranged based on the available size. We have prepared a sample for the same and let us know whether the provided sample meets your requirement.

Thanks for replying to my questions confirming the TileView behavior. 

I had already looked at the provided CardView sample via the SyncFusion WPF Control Panel bit will look at it in greater detail.

Hi Sheri, 

Thanks for your update. 

You can refer the below documentation which contains the list of features available and implementation details. 



And also you can refer the below documentation which provides more information regarding the data binding, 


If we misunderstood your requirement, please provide more information regarding the requirement. This would help us to proceed further.

I had already looked briefly at that documentation when I initially looked at the CardView as an option. 

For now I am still working with the TileView control as it seems to be what I want in terms of UI. I will eventually need to be able to show a filtered view which is where the CardView's build in sorting/grouping may end up being what I need. I'll get back to you if do have to switch over and have any questions.
