The tile maker control can be placed on the page by adding the following namespace declaration:


Once this is in place you can add the control to the page:

<mh:TileMakerControl x:Name="maker" />

The control should look like this:

2011-05-09 14h19_04

The control then has 3 methods GetCurrentTile, SetTileImage and SetBackground.


This has no parameters and returns a BitmapImage that contains the current tile that is visible in the tile square of the control.


Takes a BitmapImage as it’s parameter. This sets the image that the design surface of the tile maker will use.


Takes a SolidColorBrush. This changes the background colour that will be used when rendering the tile.
