VS.NET 2008 / Web Site Project / 3.5 Framework ... How do I enable GridLayout


I'm designing a Web Site using Visual Studio 2008 Team Developer Edition. I need to enable GridLayout on my forms so that I can drag and drop controls on the form and move them about with my mouse (similar to a WinForms application). I cannot for the life of me find where I set that. Any help would be really appreciated.

If you prefer to have the controls drag-and-drop to absolute positioning, follow these steps:

GridLayout is not XHTML compliant, however, you can enable CSS positioning for the same results.

  1. With a Web Page open on the Design pane, click Tool - Options in VS 2008.
  2. On the left side of the Options dialog, collapse everything in the tree view.
  3. Expand HTML Designer and click on CSS Styling.
  4. Check the last checkbox near the bottom that states, "Change positioning to absolute for controls added using Toolbox, paste or drag and drop".
  5. Click OK.

One last thing... It's tempting to grab the control itself to drag it around. Instead, grab the white "tooltip" tag directly above the control.

Good luck!

Creating Reports in Visual Studio 2008/.NET Framework 3.5
I am trying to create reports in VB using Visual Studio 2008/.NET Framework 3.5 with a SQL Server 2000 backend (moving to SQL Server 2005 in a couple of months). I am fairly new to this environment and I'm not sure what the best approach is. I see that there is a Visual Studio Template for Reports, but my attempts to get it working have failed.

Integrating Visual Studio 2008 / .NET 3.5 with PayPal
I am trying to integrate Visual Studio 2008 and .NET 3.5 with PayPal.  I have not seen any PayPal SDKs that work on the 2.0, 3.0 or 3.5 frameworks.  What is everyone using in order to do PayPal e-commerce in their projects?  I am open to switching away from PayPal as long as someone can provide me with a link to a decent e-commerce SDK.You can't stop entropy so why even try? If SDK is 1.1 based, you can still use it since 1.1 assemblies will work with 2.0 and 3.5.Thanks------------------------------------------------------------This posting is provided "AS IS&q...
