    I would like to have something like:

    for each tab text. I can separate the lines by using <br /> (Line1<br />Line2) but the tabs do not look right. It looks like two tabs are placed on top of each other instead of one tab that is twice as high.

    The best I could find on this issue is a forum post from 2009 where you have to manipulate the skins. Is there any better solution now (2012 version)?

    Hello Daniel,

    Unfortunately, at this time, the desired functionality is not a supported scenario for the RadTabStrip control.

    I wonder if there a solution for this issue at the end of 2015 ? It can be just for Silk or Glow skin which use css3.

    Please provide to us some example...

    Thank you

    Best regards

    Hello Daniel,

    You can easily achieve the desired functionality if you apply the white-space style rule to normal of the rtsLink class selector. Please consider the below implementation:

    <style type="text/css">
            html .RadTabStrip .rtsLink {
                white-space: normal;
     <telerik:RadTabStrip ID="RadTabStrip1" runat="server" Skin="Silk" Width="500">
                        <telerik:RadTab Text="General Information" Width="110px"></telerik:RadTab>
                        <telerik:RadTab Text="Category Information" Width="110px"></telerik:RadTab>
