SilverlightShow Page for all Silverlight and Windows Phone 7 (WP7) things on TwitterIn this tip, Brad Tutterow focuses on one way in which you can update your application’s live tile background: The ShellTileSchedule.

Of the two ways to update the background image, ShellTileSchedule is by far the easiest. The other mechanism is a push notification.

To start, you need to get the background image you will use for your background on a web server. ShellTileSchedule can only pull images off the web, not from the phone itself. This is one of the limitations of ShellTileSchedule. If you want to set background images to resources on the phone, look at using push notifications instead.

    What if i want to change the tile based on user selection. And my titles are local resources. Can that be done? All i hear about is using the web to access resource on your phone via push. What if the web is down, i can't access local resources? Does anyone know if this is possible?
