Help needed in designing web forms

Hello ,

I am a starter in ASP.NET , I am trying to build a web page that is similiar to the config screen of a router .

What I am doing is basically build a web page that connects to a server and retrieves data to and from it .

My problem is in the design of the web form . I want to create vertical tabs and when I press them the screen changes .


My problem is that the controls I add go one under another and not one next to another . The tabs I have created using Menu and Views .  I tried placing Panels and still had no luck . Basically I don't know how to build it well .

I am using VS 2008 with ASP.NET 3.5 , I could really use the help . 


Thanks to all that try to help .

Off the top of my head I am not sure if the ASP.NET AJAX Tab control can do vertical or not, but you may want to look into that. There are other controls that you might be able to leverage out of the toolkit too. I would also check out the third party controls on the ASP.NET site, there are a lot of good ones there.

I think the cheap and easy way is to just create a vertical table of link or imagebuttons that can be styled as tabs and place them on the left-hand side (or right depending on your layout) of a MultiView control. As each one is posted back you change the active view, to display your selected content. I don't think the MultiView works with AJAX, so be aware of that. You may have to do panels in that case.

I did that , used Menu + Multiview to create tabs .

But as I first said , my problem is the fact that the Menus and multiview can't be put one next to another .

I put menu and when I put multiview , he goes one line below it .

It also happens to other controls , I can't place them whereever I want , they are like clipped to a grid or something . I can't throw objects on the page freely . Why is that ? And how do I get threw it ?

How to Make Web Forms from other Web Forms
In putting together an ASP.NET application for a biz application, we have come to the point where there are three different types of basic forms which have, for the most part, been perfected. Now its is a matter of cloning those forms for various uses and modifying or adding code to suit the particular need. Copy and paste works OK, but there is a lot of changing of certain words, etc. Is there a way in ASP.NET to take these basic forms, turn them into classes or templates, create forms from them, then add or overwrite code? ?

Need HELP with adding a System.Windows.Forms control to web form!
Howdy folks. I'm in need of some help. I wanted to add a nifty little Control I made for a Windows Form to an ASP.NET page.

Web Form embedded in another Web Form
Hi,  I have programmed a Web Form which acts like a scientific calculator. I would like to embedd this calculator in the upper left hand corner of another accounting Web Form. I don't want to host the calculator on the same server as the accounting page. I.e. I want them to have distinct URLs. Classically, I would do this using frames, but is there a better way using ASP? Is there some sort of Panel which can display the webpage at a specific URL which I can just drag onto my accounting Web Form?

calling a web form from another web form
I would like to know what is the best way to open a web form from another web form. I would like to call it from a button control. Thanks Well, if I've grasped your question right, there are many methods to do that: 1)Response.Redirect > To navigate to another page from code and is equal to clicking a hyperlink. I suggest this as I think it's closer to your question. 2)Server.Transfer > This ends the current web form and begins a new web form. It's usable when you want to pass some variables i.e (Label1.Text) to the next immediate page. It's not safe though and not used to send p...

Web Form vs. Web Content Form
If you don't mind, I would like to know what is the difference between those two items, when I go to add a new item I see both of those and I don't know what the difference is.  A content form is for use with a masterpage. A web form is a standalone web page. If you select web content form, you will then have to specify a masterpage for it. and what is a master page used for?  Hi, a master page is used to give a constant look and theme to a site, without having to duplicate code. So basically you can put your header, menu, nav and footer on a master page. Then a...
