This week’s product release introduces the new, the mighty, Custom tile! We now have a dedicated tile just for creating custom tiles within the product platform. We also have one bug fix as well. For all the details, read on down.
New feature: Custom tile
The Custom tile allows you to use the new, improved editing experience, by giving you the ability to create your own tiles by adding in the option to create end user configuration variables from the tile, giving those in the LiveTiles Designers group the option to not be able to edit the code and have the tile appear to those in the group as a Custom tile.
To allow an end user to specify custom values directly from the tile settings, you can use custom variables that can be set up in the tile options. These will allow parameters in the code to be changed without editing the source. An example of this would be setting up a string, which when a user enters a value into the tile will allow them to set a location if you were creating a map tile.
For more information about the tile, we do recommend going to the knowledgebase.
