Best way to implement a "tile" start page in a m:ui app?

Oct 23, 2014 at 7:19 AM
Hello forum,

I understand that there are no plans for adding a "tile control" (like this: to the library anytime soon. I need one however, so now I'm asking for advice about how such a control best could be implemented on top of existing m:ui infrastructure.

I'm looking to implement a set of buttons (tiles) on a page automatically displayed at the launch of the application. Each button associated with a view to be displayed when the button is pressed.

I'd be very grateful for a push in the right direction! :)

Hmmm, never mind. I have been running the demo application and experimenting for a while and must say that the navigation scheme in m:ui is growing on me. I'll use it as it is for my next application... :)
Another thing came to my mind though - does anyone have any tips for using Blend together with m:ui?

Thanks again in advance!
