RadLayoutControl and the layout groups are ordering their children with a horizontal orientation by default. You can change this and arrange the child items in a vertical order by setting the control's Orientation property to Vertical.

The property is an enumeration of type System.Windows.Controls.Orientation and exposes the following values:

  • Horizontal: The layout will be oriented horizontally.
  • Vertical: The layout will be oriented vertically.

Example 1: Setting the Orientation property of RadLayoutControl

<telerik:RadLayoutControl Orientation="Vertical"/> 

Example 2: Setting the Orientation property of LayoutControlGroup

<telerik:LayoutControlGroup Orientation="Vertical"/>

The Orientation property doesn't affect the LayoutControlTabGroup.
