    I'd like to create a vertical menu with text rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise.  Is there a way to do this?

    Essentially, what I'm trying to do is create an expandable menu that can collapse into a vertical tab like the toolbox in visual studio (with text rotated to save horizontal space).

    Hello Trent,

    You can try out the following css setting to rotate the text of the menu item:
    aspx:
     <telerik:RadMenu  ID="RadMenu1" runat="server" Flow="Horizontal"
                <Items> 
                <telerik:RadMenuItem Height="50px" CssClass="mymenu" Text="menu1">  
                <Items> 
                 <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="submenu1">             
                </telerik:RadMenuItem> 
                <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="submenu2">             
                </telerik:RadMenuItem> 
                </Items>            
                </telerik:RadMenuItem>            
                </Items> 
     </telerik:RadMenu> 

    css:
     .mymenu .rmText 
        { 
            -moz-transform: rotate(-90deg); /* Mozilla FireFox */ 
            filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(rotation=3); /* IE */ 
     
        }  

    Thanks
    Princy.

    Hi Trent,

    You can also add:
    -webkit-transform: (-90deg);
    to rotate the text in Safari/Chrome too.
