Remarks

Use this property to specify the display direction of the RadioButtonList control.

Note

The number of columns that are displayed is always determined by the RepeatColumns property.

If this property is set to RepeatDirection.Vertical and if the RepeatLayout property is set to Table, the first column is filled from top to bottom, then the next column, and so on until all items are rendered. For example, if RepeatColumns is set to 3, the items of the RadioButtonList control are displayed in three columns. A nine-item list would appear as follows.

1 4 7
2 5 8
3 6 9

If this property is set to RepeatDirection.Horizontal and if the RepeatLayout property is set to Table, the items in the list are displayed in rows loaded left to right, then top to bottom, until all items are rendered. For example, if RepeatColumns is set to 3, the items of the RadioButtonList control are displayed in rows of three items. A nine-item list would appear as follows.

1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
