Hello

I am using the wpf tab control and want the tabs to be on the left hand side with my content on the right hand side.  I was looking into the documentation at (http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/radtabcontrol-appearance.html) and saw that you can set the property "TabStripPlacement" to left.  When I do this, the tab goes across the screen with my content below the tab.

I also look at the following page for silverlight (http://demos.telerik.com/Silverlight/#TabControl/TabStripOrientation) and your getting the same effect by setting the same property.

Example of what I want:
[tab1]   content display for selected tab
[tab2]
[tab3]
...

Here is what I am getting:
[tab1]
[tab2]
[tab3]
Content below tabs

Where am I going wrong?

Thanks

Hello Kevin,

I tested the TabStripPlacement property with versions:
1.0501
2.0701
2.0724

And it is is working there.

I am sending you the project with 2.0724.

Will switching to a newer version be possible for you?

All the best,
Miroslav

I found my problem.  I am using version 2.0701.  I set the theme of the rad tab control to (telerik:StyleManager.Theme="Office_Silver").  This causes the tabs to go across the screen when setting the TabStripPlacement="Left".  Just an FYI.

Thanks for your help

By the way, the version Miroslav added (2.0724) seems to work fine with the theme.  Not sure if this was a previous bug or just something with my environment.
