Fluid Design

This article explains the fluid design capabilities RadTiles offer. The example below shows how you can set its size in percent so it can resize with its parent element.

Generally, responsive design means that the page and its content are able to adapt to different screen resolutions without deteriorating the user experience. This often includes changing the font size and having dimensions set in percent.

Figure 1: A Tile with dimensions set to 100% that occupies its entire parent element


You can set the Width and Height properties of the Tile in percent. This lets it resize together with its parent element. You can find a small sample in Example 1 that shows a simple div element that resizes with the browser and the tile inside resizes with it.

Example 1: Fluid Tile with dimensions set in percent.

<style type="text/css">
    html, body, form
        margin: 0;
        padding: 0;
        height: 100%;

<div style="height: 50%; width: 50%;">
    <telerik:RadTextTile Width="100%" Height="100%" runat="server" ID="RadTextTile1" Selected="true" Text="A RadTextTile object" Shape="Wide">
        <Badge PredefinedType="Alert" />
        <Title Text="Title Text"></Title>
