    I originally coded two buttons via C# to appear on page load inside a rad menu item which originally contained a radcombobox and two input items:
        <telerik:RadMenuItem runat="server" Value="WorkspaceMenuItems">
                                <telerik:RadComboBox ID="ComboBoxViews" runat="server"/>
                                <input type="button" value="Create View" />
                                <input type="button" value="Manage Views"/>

    My question I guess is how can I use placeholders inside a radmenuitem ?, the way I have it is like so:

    var menu = ((RadMenu)Master.FindControl("MenuMaster")).FindItemByValue("WorkspaceMenuItems");

    However the thing I don't like is that on the webpage the buttons added show too near eachother, not like the ones originally placed there. I included picture...is there a way to go about it using placeholders or is there another easy way ?"? thanks!!!!

    I recreated your scenario and managed to reproduce the behavior you are describing. Here's how you can increase the distance between the added buttons:

    1. You can add a CSS class to the buttons you are adding dynamically, for instance:
    Button btn = new Button();
    btn.ID = "btnTest";
    btn.Text = "dynamically created";
    btn.CssClass = "menuButton";

    2. Then you can use the following CSS rule:
    html .menuButton:last-of-type {
        margin-left: 4px;

    to increase the distance between the ultimate and penultimate button.

    This is really good, thanks for the reply I actually did something a little bit different but doing the same thing. This approach looks cleaner.
