    Hi

    The RadSlidingPane Tab Text currently displays text vertically one character after another. For example:

    T
    e
    x
    t

    Is there any other way to orientate the text at all? For example, as if I took the text "Text" and then rotated it 90 degrees anti clockwise??

    I have just been demoing these controls to our users and the tet orientation seemed to be quite a big issue for them.

    Thanks.

    Hi Paolo Broccardo,
    Currently, the RadSlidingPane tabs use the "writing-mode" CSS property to display their text exactly the way you describe it. The problem is however, that only IE supports this CSS property. That is why, in case you want to get the same result in all supported browsers, you can use an image, showing the text as you need it to, instead of text. In order to do this, you have to set TabView="ImageOnly" for the RadSlidingPane. Have a look at our Tab View demo that explains this in detail.

    Best wishes,

    Hi

    Thanks - doing it with an image will work fine!

    Just out of interest - which font-family was used for that tab view demo you referred me to here:

    Thanks again

    Hello Paolo Broccardo,
    For the images that we used for the RadSplitter with TabView=ImageOnly, we used "normal 11px Arial".

    Kind regards,

    Hi Manish,

    I have already answered your support ticket on the matter, for convenience I will copy my answer here as well:

    We are aware of a similar to the described issue in the SlidingPane tabs and it is already fixed in our latest release. You can test it in our online demos here:
    http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/splitter/examples/sp_tabview/defaultcs.aspx

    In addition, please note that UC is not among the browsers we support thus we cannot guarantee that the controls will behave properly in it. You can find a detailed list of all supported browsers here:
