The TileControl is a control that repeats an image many times. It enables you to use animation and synchronization with a ScrollViewer to create parallax effect. XAML or Microsoft Composition are automatically used to render the control.


<controls:TileControl x:Name="Tile1" OffsetX="-10" OffsetY="10" IsAnimated="True"
    ScrollViewerContainer="{x:Bind FlipView}" ParallaxSpeedRatio="1.2"/>
