hello,

in the previous version of the RadControls, there was a very nifty vertical skin called "VerticalLeft". it was sleek and elegant, albeit IE-only. however for an intranet this is often acceptable.

in testing the new version, ASP.NET AJAX, i find this skin is no longer valid.

what can i do? i still have the old skin in my site here:

    RadControls\Tabstrip\Skins\VerticalLeft

....thanks!
matt

Telerik, any input? We want to upgrade our apps to use the new version, but we felt this skin was important to our application's design.

It took up very little screen-estate and was quite effective. I realize it was IE-only, but that decision should be left to us as the application builders.

How can I restore this now missing functionality??


thanks,
matt

Hi matt,

You can use this functionality only when using the Outlook skin or a custom skin.

For using the Outlook skin, set your RadTabStrip declaration as follows:
<telerik:RadTabStrip runat="server" Skin="Outlook" Orientation="VerticalLeft" CssClass="VerticalText"

And add the following CSS styles to your site:
div.VerticalText .rtsLevel .rtsUL 
    floatleft
    widthauto
 
div.VerticalText .rtsLI 
    width30px
 
div.VerticalText .rtsUL .rtsLI .rtsOut .rtsIn 
    padding10px 5px
 
div.VerticalText .rtsTxt 
    writing-mode: tb-rl; 
    filter: flipH() flipV(); 
    padding: 0;

thank you, alex. that does get me the functionality, but w/ the Outlook skin.

if i still have a copy of the previous version's "VerticalLeft" skin (which IMO looked better) from "RadControls\Tabstrip\Skins\VerticalLeft", how can i convert it into a skin for the new version?
