Getting Started

The Essential Studio for ASP.NET Core Web Tiles are simple, opaque rectangles or squares that are arrayed on the Start screen in a grid-like pattern and it can be either static or live. By Tap or Touch you can navigate to the corresponding linked page/url or whatever function you have configured.
This section explains briefly you how to create a Tile control in your ASP.NET Core application.

Create a simple Tile

The following steps guide you to add group of Tiles for creating a home page like view that displays all the available applications.

  1. Refer the Getting Started page of the Introduction part to know more about the basic system requirements and the steps to configure the Syncfusion components in an ASP.NET Core application.
  2. To add a Tile control, call Tile helper. You can specify the tile name, size and image URL as follows. Add the following code example to the corresponding view page.
  • cshtml
  • <ej-tile id="tile7" tile-size="@TileSize.Medium" image-url="../images/tile/windows/map.png" text="Map"> </ej-tile>
    1. Run the above code and you will get below output.

    In this scenario, a home page is designed using tile for easy navigation. Therefore, you require many different sizes of tiles aligned in a grid-like manner. To align the tiles automatically, define the necessary tile elements inside the wrapper element that contains a e-tile-column class. You can define all columns elements under the wrapper element with e-tile-group class to make ā€˜nā€™ number of tiles as a grouped tile.
    Refer the following code example.

  • cshtml
  • <div class="e-tile-group">
            <div class="e-tile-column">
                <ej-tile id="tile1" image-position="@TileImagePosition.Fill" tile-size="@TileSize.Medium" image-url="../images/tile/windows/people_1.png" text="People"></ej-tile>
                <div class="e-tile-small-col-2">
                    <ej-tile id="tile2" image-position="@TileImagePosition.Center" tile-size="@TileSize.Small" image-url="../images/tile/windows/alerts.png"></ej-tile>
                    <ej-tile id="tile3" image-position="@TileImagePosition.Center" tile-size="@TileSize.Small" image-url="../images/tile/windows/bing.png"></ej-tile>
                    <ej-tile id="tile4" tile-size="@TileSize.Small" image-url="../images/tile/windows/camera.png"></ej-tile>
                    <ej-tile id="tile5" image-position="@TileImagePosition.Center" tile-size="@TileSize.Small" image-url="../images/tile/windows/messages.png"></ej-tile>                
                </div>
                <ej-tile id="tile6" image-position="@TileImagePosition.Center" tile-size="@TileSize.Medium" image-url="../images/tile/windows/games.png" text="Play"></ej-tile>
                <ej-tile id="tile7" tile-size="@TileSize.Medium" image-url="../images/tile/windows/map.png" text="Map"></ej-tile>
                <ej-tile id="tile8" image-position="@TileImagePosition.Fill" tile-size="@TileSize.Wide" image-url="../images/tile/windows/sports.png" text="Sports"></ej-tile>            
            </div>
            <div class="e-tile-column">
                <ej-tile id="tile9" image-position="@TileImagePosition.Fill" tile-size="@TileSize.Medium" image-url="../images/tile/windows/people_2.png" text="People"></ej-tile>
                <ej-tile id="tile10" image-position="@TileImagePosition.Center" tile-size="@TileSize.Medium" image-url="../images/tile/windows/pictures.png" text="Photo"></ej-tile>
                <ej-tile id="tile11" image-position="@TileImagePosition.Center" tile-size="@TileSize.Wide" image-url="../images/tile/windows/weather.png" text="Weather"></ej-tile>
                <ej-tile id="tile12" image-position="@TileImagePosition.Center" tile-size="@TileSize.Medium" image-url="../images/tile/windows/music.png" text="Music"></ej-tile>
                <ej-tile id="tile13" image-position="@TileImagePosition.Center" tile-size="@TileSize.Medium" image-url="../images/tile/windows/favs.png" text="Favorites"></ej-tile>           
            </div>
