    protected override void CreateChildElements()
        StackLayoutPanel layoutPanel = new StackLayoutPanel();
        layoutPanel.Orientation = Orientation.Vertical;
        for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
    private RadTextBoxElement GetTextBoxElement(int count)
        RadTextBoxElement result = new RadTextBoxElement();
        result.ShowBorder = true;
        result.Text = "Element" + count.ToString();
        result.Class = "MyTextBoxElement";
        result.StretchHorizontally = false;
        result.StretchVertically = false;
        result.MinSize = new Size(100, 17);
        return result;

Public Class MyStackLayoutPanelElement
