Too bad. It actually provides the answer to your question.
Arif, to add to what the others have already said ... You can also affect the orientation of the dimension by the way you pick the geometry.
The image on the left has the circles selected on only the top surface (edge only), while the image on the right has the faces (surface I.D.) of the circles selected. Just one more way to get there.
Please add video

Thanks @ Dave Bear ... I would have done so but our IT dept. limits YouTube time and incoming/outgoing attachments. Oh well, stories for another day.
