        We using rad context menu with menu items, when i add image and text, there is no space between image and text and also text not align well, like showing little bit top.I used following style, but not work.

    .RadMenu .rmHorizontal .rmText
               padding-left: 55px !important;

            .RadMenu .rmGroup .rmLeftImage {
        margin: 4px 6px 0 6px;


    This is code behind - 

     <telerik:RadContextMenu ID="UserIconConMenu" runat="server"  
             ClickToOpen="false" EnableRoundedCorners="true"
                Width="20px" EnableShadows="true">
                    <telerik:RadMenuItem ImageUrl="images/cust/master/Dashboard.png" Value="DB"
                        Text="Dashboard" />
                    <telerik:RadMenuItem ImageUrl="images/cust/master/Explorer.png" Value="EP"
                        Text="Explorer" />
                    <telerik:RadMenuItem ImageUrl="images/cust/master/Database-Access-icon.png" Value="CA"
                        Text="Cabinet Access" />
                      <telerik:RadMenuItem ImageUrl="images/cust/master/report-icon.png" Value="RP"
                        Text="Report" />
                      <telerik:RadMenuItem runat="server" Value ="STS" IsSeparator="True"  Text="|" />
                      <telerik:RadMenuItem ImageUrl="images/cust/master/Setting-icon.png" Value="ST"
                        Text="Settings" />
                     <telerik:RadMenuItem ImageUrl="images/cust/master/HelpMenu.png" Value="HP" Text="Help">
                         <Items >
                              <telerik:RadMenuItem ImageUrl="images/cust/master/Manuals.png" Value="OAM"
                        Text="OA User Manual" />
                              <telerik:RadMenuItem ImageUrl="images/cust/master/AboutMenu.png" Value="AB"
                        Text="About" />

    The following CSS will improve the appearance of the image in the ContextMenu you have shared. 

    .RadMenu .rmGroup .rmLink {
        padding-left: 40px
    .RadMenu .rmGroup .rmLeftImage {
        position: absolute;
        top: 3px;
        left: 0px;
        margin: auto;
        float: none;

    For further customization, you can follow the suggestions in the first two points of the Improve Your Debugging Skills with Chrome DevTools blog post explaining how to inspect the generated HTML and check the applied styles for various elements. 

    Once you know the styles you need to override, you can use the same style selector and add "html body " in front of it to make it more specific, "stronger". More on CSS specificity you can find here:
