    Hello

    I am using the wpf tab control and want the tabs to be on the left hand side with my content on the right hand side.  I was looking into the documentation at (http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/radtabcontrol-appearance.html) and saw that you can set the property "TabStripPlacement" to left.  When I do this, the tab goes across the screen with my content below the tab.

    I also look at the following page for silverlight (http://demos.telerik.com/Silverlight/#TabControl/TabStripOrientation) and your getting the same effect by setting the same property.

    Example of what I want:
    [tab1]   content display for selected tab
    [tab2]
    [tab3]
    ...

    Here is what I am getting:
    [tab1]
    [tab2]
    [tab3]
    Content below tabs

    Where am I going wrong?

    Thanks

    Hello Kevin,

    I tested the TabStripPlacement property with versions:
    1.0501
    2.0701
    2.0724

    And it is is working there.

    I am sending you the project with 2.0724.

    Will switching to a newer version be possible for you?

    All the best,

    I found my problem.  I am using version 2.0701.  I set the theme of the rad tab control to (telerik:StyleManager.Theme="Office_Silver").  This causes the tabs to go across the screen when setting the TabStripPlacement="Left".  Just an FYI.

    Thanks for your help

    By the way, the version Miroslav added (2.0724) seems to work fine with the theme.  Not sure if this was a previous bug or just something with my environment.
