public ContextItemCollection ContextButtons { get; }

Property Value

Type Description

A ContextItemCollection object that represents the collection of context buttons displayed in the tiles.


The ContextButtons property provides access to the collection of context buttons that are displayed in the TileControl. For details, see the ContextItem class, which is the base class for the context buttons.

The figure below shows the context buttons displayed in the top tile.


At design time, you can manage the context button collection and specify button properties using the Context Buttons designer. To invoke this designer, click the ellipsis button of the ContextButtons property in the Properties window. See the figure below.


To respond to clicks on context buttons in a centralized way, handle the TileControl.ContextButtonClick event. The Item property of the ContextItemClickEventArgs object passed to the event handler as a parameter, allows you to determine the button being clicked.

The TileControl.ContextButtonOptions property provides access to the settings applied to the context buttons and panels that contain them. For instance, you can specify the indent between the buttons, the background color of each panel, animation used to show and hide the buttons, and the padding around the buttons.

By default, the TileControl displays the context buttons with the same properties in all tiles. If you need to specify custom button properties for individual tiles or hide specific context buttons, handle the TileControl.ContextButtonCustomize event.
