TileView

The TileView widget contains a collection of tiles. Tiles can store much more information than ordinary buttons, that is why they are very popular in apps designed for touch devices.

You can create the widget using one of the following approaches.

jQuery
HTML
JavaScript
<div id="tileView">
    <div data-options="dxTemplate: { name: 'tile' }">
        <p style="font-size:larger"><b data-bind="text: state"></b></p>
        <p>Capital: <i data-bind="text: capital"></i></p>
        <p>Population: <i data-bind="text: population"></i></p>
    </div>
</div>
var states = [
    { state: "Alabama", capital: "Montgomery", population: 4822023 },
    { state: "Alaska", capital: "Juneau", population: 731449 },
    { state: "Arizona", capital: "Phoenix", population: 6553255 },
    // ...
];
$(function() {
    $("#tileView").dxTileView({
        dataSource: states,
        itemTemplate: "tile"
    });
});
Angular

<dx-tile-view
    [dataSource]="states"
    itemTemplate="tile">
        <div *dxTemplate="let tileData of 'tile'">
            <p style="font-size:larger"><b> {{ tileData.state }} </b></p>
            <p>Capital: <i> {{ tileData.capital }} </i></p>
            <p>Population: <i> {{ tileData.population }} </i></p>
        </div>
</dx-tile-view>
export class AppComponent {
    states = [
        // ...
    ];
}
AngularJS

angular.module('DemoApp', ['dx'])
    .controller("DemoController", function ($scope) {
        $scope.states = [
            // ...   
        ];
    });
Knockout

<div data-bind="dxTileView: {
    dataSource: states,
    itemTemplate: 'tile'
}">
    <div data-options="dxTemplate: { name: 'tile' }">
        <p style="font-size:larger"><b data-bind="text: state"></b></p>
        <p>Capital: <i data-bind="text: capital"></i></p>
        <p>Population: <i data-bind="text: population"></i></p>
    </div>
</div>
var viewModel = {
    states: [
        // ...
    ]
};
ko.applyBindings(viewModel);
ASP.NET MVC Controls
Razor C#
Razor VB
@(Html.DevExtreme().TileView()
    .ID("tileView")
    .DataSource(States)
    .ItemTemplate(@<text>
        <p style="font-size:larger"><b> <%= state %> </b></p>
        <p>Capital: <i> <%= capital %> </i></p>
        <p>Population: <i> <%= population %> </i></p>
    </text>)
)
@Code
    Html.DevExtreme().TileView() _
        .ID("tileView") _
        .DataSource(States) _
        .ItemTemplate(Sub()
            @<text>
                <p style="font-size:larger"><b> <%= state %> </b></p>
                <p>Capital: <i> <%= capital %> </i></p>
                <p>Population: <i> <%= population %> </i></p>
            </text>
        End Sub).Render()
End Code

Note that DevExtreme widgets require you to link the jQuery library to your application. If you use the Knockout or AngularJS approach, the Knockout or AngularJS library is also required. For detailed information on linking these libraries to your project, refer to the topics in the Installation section.
