    Hello there,

    I added a RadButton to my WInForm and although I can find TextPrimitive.TextOrientation property in the Designer, I cannot find it through the Telerik API so I can change it in runtime!

    Telerik Designer and API are not consistent with each other?

    Any idea on how I can resolve my problem?  

    Thank you,

    You can delete this post, it was my fault. 

    If you wanna keep it for future reference the code line goes like that:


    <p>((Telerik.WinControls.Primitives.TextPrimitive)(myButton.ButtonElement.Children[1])).TextOrientation = 270;</p><p></p>

    Hello, Maria,

    Thank you for writing.  

    The TextOrientation property doesn't accept numeric values but the Horizontal/Vertical options of the Orientation enum. It is not a suitable approach to use the Children collection for accessing some of the inner elements. You can directly set the RadButton.ButtonElement.TextOrientation property: 
    this.radButton1.ButtonElement.TextOrientation = Orientation.Vertical;

    I would recommend you to have a look at the following help article which will get you familiar with the internal structure of RadButton: 

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.
