You can control the orientation of the menu by setting its Flow property either to Horizontal or Vertical. The default value of the Flow property is Horizontal.

When Flow is set, its value determines the the flow of the root group. If set for a particular item, it will affect the item's children.

In this example, the Flow property is set in the code-behind upon selecting an item in the RadioButtonList on the right.
