Public Property DefaultTileImage As Image

Property Value

Type Default Description
Image

null

An Image that is the default Live Tile image.

Remarks

WinRTLiveTileManager's Live Tiles display default images in two cases:

  • after the Live Tile was just pinned to Windows 8 Start Screen and has not yet received any notifications via the WinRTLiveTileManager.UpdateTile method ;
  • after an end-user switched off the Live Tile via Windows 8 Apps bar.

Default images are stretched to occupy the entire Live Tile. For the best visual result, use images of 310x150 pixels size. This size is in effect when a Live Tile is displayed as a large (wide) Tile (see the WideTile class). If an end-user switches the Live Tile size to SquareTile, default image will be clipped to 150x150 pixels size.
