TileLayout PHP Class Overview

The Kendo UI TileLayout for PHP is a server-side wrapper for the Kendo UI TileLayout widget.

The Kendo UI TileLayout widget allows you configure a two-dimensional grid-based sandbox surface to display content in tiles which can be dragged around and rearranged to create any modern page design.

It is based on the CSS Grid(with all its features) which covers the majority of cases and uses additional JavaScript logic to provide resizing, reordering and templates customizations.

Getting Started


Below are listed the steps for you to follow when configuring the Kendo UI TileLayout for PHP.

Step 1 Make sure you followed all the steps from the introductory article on Telerik UI for PHP—include the autoloader, JavaScript, and CSS files.

Step 2 Create a TileLayout.

    $tilelayout = new \Kendo\UI\TileLayout("tilelayout");

    $header1 = new \Kendo\UI\TileLayoutContainerHeader();
    $header1->text("Header One");

    $container1 = new \Kendo\UI\TileLayoutContainer();
    $container1->bodyTemplate("Body Text One")

    $tilelayout ->addContainer($container1);

    $header2 = new \Kendo\UI\TileLayoutContainerHeader();
    $header2->text("Header Two");

    $container2 = new \Kendo\UI\TileLayoutContainer();
    $container2->bodyTemplate("Body Text Two")


    $header3 = new \Kendo\UI\TileLayoutContainerHeader();
    $header3->text("Header Three");

    $container3 = new \Kendo\UI\TileLayoutContainer();
    $container3->bodyTemplate("Body Text Three")


Step 3 Output the TileLayout by echoing the result of the render method.

   <?php echo $tilelayout->render(); ?>

Container Styles

The TileLayout exposes an object that allows you to override the following styles:

    var tileLayoutStyles = {
        wrapper: "k-widget k-tilelayout",
        item: "k-tilelayout-item k-card",
        itemHeader: "k-tilelayout-item-header k-card-header",
        itemHeaderTitle: "k-card-title",
        itemBody: "k-tilelayout-item-body k-card-body",
        reorderHint: "k-layout-item-hint k-layout-item-hint-reorder",
        resizeHint: "k-layout-item-hint k-layout-item-hint-resize"

To override any of the classes, add your own or remove some, insert the new definition before the widget is initialized:

    kendo.ui.TileLayout.styles.item = "k-tilelayout-item k-card my-own-class";

Add or Remove Tiles

The Kendo UI TileLayout supports the option to dynamically add and remove tiles.


This functionality is a custom implementation based on the splice JS array method and the setOptions TileLayout client-side method.

For a full implementation of the Add/Remove functionality please refer to the official Add/Remove demo page.

Known Limitations

Currently, the component is not supported in Internet Explorer as the browser does not support gutters.

Event Handling

You can subscribe to all TileLayout events.

Specify Function Names

The example below demonstrates how to subscribe for events by specifying a JavaScript function name.

$tilelayout = new \Kendo\UI\TileLayout("tilelayout");

    function onResize(e) {
        // for widgets that do not auto resize
        // https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/styles-and-layout/using-kendo-in-responsive-web-pages
        kendo.resize(e.item, true);


Client-Side Instances

You are able to reference an existing TileLayout instance via the jQuery.data(). Once a reference is established, use the TileLayout API to control its behavior.

    $tilelayout = new \Kendo\UI\TileLayout("tilelayout");

    $(function() {
        // The constructor parameter is used as the 'id' HTML attribute of the tilelayout
        var TileLayout = $("#tilelayout").data("kendoTileLayout");
