The other way is to use the RadPanelBarGroupElement's property EnableHostControlMode. When you set this property to true then we add a ContentPanel as a child of the group element When the groups have EnableHostControlMode = true then you simply have to drag and drop RadLabel control into the content panel.
Please, let me know if this does not suite to your scenario.
