Drag and Drop Tiles to an Empty TileLayout

Environment

Product TileLayout for Progress® Kendo UI®

Description

How can I drag and drop new tiles after removing all of the tiles from the TileLayout?

Solution

  1. Add logic for adding an empty tile upon removing the last one.
  2. Change tile background color and remove borders of the empty tile so it is not visible to the users.
  3. Add logic for removing the empty tile when the first new tile is dropped.
