WinRTLiveTileManager.DefaultTileImage Property

An image, displayed within a Live Tile by default.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraBars.WinRTLiveTiles

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraBars.v19.1.dll


public Image DefaultTileImage { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description


An Image that is the default Live Tile image.


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.
