Namespace: DevExpress.XtraBars.WinRTLiveTiles

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraBars.v20.1.dll


public UpdateTileResult UpdateTile(
    WideTile wideTile,
    SquareTile squareTile
Public Function UpdateTile(
    wideTile As WideTile,
    squareTile As SquareTile
) As UpdateTileResult


Name Type Description
wideTile WideTile

A WideTile template.

squareTile SquareTile

A SquareTile template.


Type Description

An UpdateTileResult enumerator value specifying whether the operation was successfully completed.


The UpdateTile method removes all the current Live Tile content (and content animation queue) and replaces it with the new content, specified via the WideTile and SquareTile templates. You can also add a specific content to the animation queue instead of destroying the current content. To do this, use the WinRTLiveTileManager.UpdateTile method that takes the enableQueue parameter instead.


It's not recommended to use the UpdateTile method too often. Normally, as the Microsoft Supporting Apps with Background Tasks article states, update operations should not exceed 2 seconds of CPU time each 15 minutes. More frequent use of the UpdateTile method may cause the background tasks to malfunction.
