IN VS.Net how can i get a web form to scroll (design mode)

In design mode in VS.Net, there is a scroll bar next to the web form, but it is grayed out.  I can not figure out how to enable it.  I want to design a web form that is larger in size than the surface area shown in teh deisgn window.  Can someone help out with this?

Thank you.

VS design surface shows how the page is going to be rendered in the browser. Therefore, there is no 'virtual' large size. In the browser scroll bar appears if the browser window is smaller than the page content. You can make scroll bar to appear by enclosing page content in a large container element, such as <div style="width:2000px; height:2000px"></div>. Don't forget to remove this element before deploying the page since otherwise scrollbars will be visible all the time in the browser.

Hi, thanks for the response.  So far I am not able to use it to solve my problem.  Here is a clarification of my problem, the reason i ask this question.  I want to create a web form with about 50-60 labels, and next to each, a TextBox, all in one long stack.  This is entirely a design time question in VS.  Once i've put ~12 pairs of label/text box on the form in VS, i can't put any more below those, as the form won't scroll in VS.  I tried adding the <div> as you suggested in the HTML view of the form in a few places.  I tried adding it within the <body> tags, within the <form> tags, and enclosing the entire <form>.  In all cases, indeed you are right, that in VS, the form now has a scroll bar and i can scroll down.  BUT [importantly], i cannot drop any more controls in that <div> area.  The entire area within the <div> gives me the "circle with line thru it" icon if i try to drop another control there such as a TextBox.  So, I cannot solve the problem of making a long form with many text boxes.

Does anybody have a further suggestion?

Thank you.

Are you using flow or grid layout? You might want to add, say, 10 controls, then select all 10, copy and paste. Or you may have to hit ENTER after the last added control in order to create more space. I usually drop new control after the last one, place caret between controls and hit enter.

Implementing .Net Form into an web form, can this be done
I am new here, but have been searching for a while, and may not have the correct lingo to find what I am looking for.  I am tasked with implementing a .exe application that was writen vb6 then converted to .net into a new website my team is developing. The idea is to put each of the 3 different forms in this .exe application of 3 different .aspx pages. I have attempted multiple things to get this into the page and even started to just rewrite it as an web form, but even then I can't reuse any of the code since the System.Web.UI.Page doesn't inherit the sa...

VS.NET 2005 Web Forms Designer Changes
Word on the street is the web forms designer architecture has vastly improved in VS.NET 2005. That's great for me, since I write plenty control designers and add-ins and 2003 has bothered me in more ways that I care to discuss. But I can't find a good place to get the info on the designer changes in 2005. Could someone link me to some resources? Thanks There are a few resources: Check out the quickstarts for beta1. i think we added some very basic details there, but there are also some comments in 477688 686110 for some general details.SimonThis posting is provided "...

Strange VS.NET Web Form Designer Error

Hi all, I am very new to .NET ... I realized C#.NET is only available from Visual Studio.NET ... however, I realized Web Matrix also allowed us to choose C# as language but not C#.NET ... they are not the same, right?

convert the web application from 2002 to 2003
hi how can i convert the web application from 2002 to 2003 and how i know that the application is made in 2002 and not in 2003 and thank for your time VS.NEt 2003 detects 2002 project format automatically when you try to open 2002 project with it. It also asks you if the project needs to be converted into 2003 format (if I remember right conversion must be done to use the project in 2003). If you say yes, it does the conversion and you don't have to do anything. Note that VS.NEt 2002 can't open 2003 projects.Thanks,Teemu KeiskiFinland, EU thank you for your...

Can you return .net web controls in a .net page from a web service?
I've got a problem with a project. I've got to compile an entire .net page and return it as part of a Web Service for display. The problem I have is that I need to add WebControls and functionality to the page so that not only the html content and images are displayed (which I've managed) but that textboxes, labels, buttons and datasets can be displayed also. Essentially I need to make a call from one site for a page, populate the page and return it in a state as though it resided on the same server/webspace as the calling page. Code is currently built as follows into a string: strOpenHT...

Web form designer in VS 2003 .Net does not know about base class controls
I have a base class derived from System.Web.UI.Page, and derived classes derived from the base class. The base class has protected HTML hidden fields in it, and the derived class's aspx page has these hidden fields specified. So far everything is OK.However if I open the derived class's aspx page in the Web Form designer, it immediately puts an asterisk on the tab, meaning some change needs saving without my having done anything. If I then close the aspx page and agree to save the changes, it adds the HTML hidden fields to my derived class, not only overlaying the base class's hidden fields ...
