Hello Pierre,

By design, vertical alignment for RadTextBoxControl is not supposed to be supported. It is an input control and the text is purposed to be shown from top to bottom in a multiline textbox. The standard MS TextBox also supports only horizontal text alignment. Currently, we don't have plans to change this behavior. If other customers have a similar request we will consider it in future.

I hope this information helps. If you have any additional questions, please let me know.

Hello Dimitar

actually this was not my question

In this case I am not looking to vertically align text in a text box (While this is another thing I would like to be able to do)

but I would need to show a Text in a Box that is vertical as per the attached mockup

I could use Labels ot r textbox indefferently as I Don't use it as an input box, only a "display"

Thanks in advance

Hello Pierre,

With a label this is possible. Here is an example: 
radLabel1.BackColor = Color.White;
radLabel1.AutoSize = false;
radLabel1.Size = new Size(30, 500);
radLabel1.LabelElement.AngleTransform = 90;
radLabel1.LabelElement.FlipText = true;
radLabel1.LabelElement.TextAlignment = ContentAlignment.MiddleCenter;

I hope this helps. Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to ask.
