How to customize header in the WPF TileViewControl?

1 min read

You can customize header of the TileViewItem by using the Header Template. In the following example, the header is customized by setting the image at the left corner and changing the FontWeight of the Header Text. Different colors are set for the HeaderBackground.


    <Style x:Key="Tileviewstyle"  TargetType="{x:Type syncfusion:TileViewItem}">
      <Setter Property="HeaderBackground" Value="{Binding Color}"></Setter>
    <syncfusion:TileViewControl  x:Name="Tiles"   AllowItemRepositioning="False" ItemContainerStyle="{StaticResource Tileviewstyle}"  ItemsSource="{Binding TileItems}"  >
              <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto"/>
              <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto"/>
            <Image Source="book.png" Stretch="Fill" Width="15" Height="15" Margin="0,0,5,0"/>
            <TextBlock FontWeight="Bold" Grid.Column="1" Text="{Binding Header}"  Height="30"></TextBlock>
          <StackPanel Orientation="Vertical">
            <TextBlock Text="{Binding Description}" Height="30"></TextBlock>



public MainWindow()
                this.DataContext = new ViewModel();



public class Model
           public string Color { get; set; }
           public string Header { get; set; }
           public string Description { get; set; }



public class ViewModel
         public ObservableCollection<Model> TileItems { get; set; }
                    public ViewModel()
                TileItems = new ObservableCollection<Model>();
                TileItems.Add(new Model() { Header = "Item5", Color = "#FF4DAEB5", Description = "TileViewContent1" });
                TileItems.Add(new Model() { Header = "Item2", Color = "#FF36377C", Description = "TileViewContent2" });
                TileItems.Add(new Model() { Header = "Item1", Color = "#FF4DEAB4", Description = "TileViewContent3" });
                TileItems.Add(new Model() { Header = "Item4", Color = "#F4FADEB5", Description = "TileViewContent4" });
