TileLayout Reordering

The Kendo UI TileLayout widget allows you rearrange the position of the tile containers with drag and drop.

The reordering takes advantage of the CSS Grid mechanism and changes the css order of the item and lets the browser handle the rest.

Enabling the reorderable functionality of the TileLayout

To enable the reorderable feature of the TileLayout, set the reorderable property to true.

To use the reorderable functionality, define headers.

The example below will render a grid with two columns which can be reordered both vertically and horizontally.

    <div id="tilelayout"></div>

            containers: [{
                colSpan: 1,
                rowSpan: 1,
                header: {
                    text: "Item one"
                bodyTemplate: "Item one body"
            }, {
                colSpan: 1,
                rowspan: 1,
                header: {
                    text: "Item two"
                bodyTemplate: "Item two body"
            }, {
                colSpan: 1,
                rowspan: 1,
                header: {
                    text: "Item three"
                bodyTemplate: "Item three body"
            columns: 3,
            height: 200,
            reorderable: true

Event Handling

The widget triggers a reorder event which provides access to the reordered container, the old and the new index.

    reorder: function (e) {
        console.log(e.newIndex, e.oldIndex);
