The TileControl.SaveLayoutToXml method creates an .xml file to save the current custom TileControl layout at runtime. Later, this file can be loaded via the RestoreLayoutFromXml method to restore the layout. You can also save a custom user layout via the TileControl.SaveLayoutToRegistry and TileControl.SaveLayoutToStream methods - for each of them, the corresponding restore method exists.

Saved and restored layouts keep information only about group and item arrangements. Item content and appearance settings are not kept.
