In order to make RadOrgChart's groups more compact and customizable, we have implemented a way to break groups on multiple lines by number of columns.

There is a property directly on RadOrgChart - RadOrgChart.GroupColumnCount. Using this property one can directly cause all groups to be ordered in multiple lines.

Additionaly, the ColumnCount property of OrgChartNode can be used in order to specify it localy for the group.

The above example demonstrates how to use both in a combination.
