Need a tiled background control in your Silverlight application? Unfortunately, there is no native tile control in Silverlight. However, you can easily obtain the source code for one if you install the JetPack theme. Sure, there a few steps, but at least you don’t have to write it yourself! A special thanks goes out to Tim Heuer for the tip!

    An alternative tiled backgound control can be found here. It uses a pixel shader to achieve the effect and supports rounded corners and a border. Full source included.
