Visual Studio 2005, ASP.Net, web forms issues
Posted on 2006-04-30
I have recently changed to visual studio 2005 and am having a problem with building a nice looking user interface in asp.net. In VS 2003, you can move items around a web form - using grid layout - and the form has snap to grid etc. Text fields, drop downs and other components can easily be lined up.
In VS 2005, I do not seem to have this ability, components are not aligned and cannot be dragged and dropped onto any area of the form, but only next to existing components.
Surely VS 2005 can let me create a web form and allow me to drag and drop anywhere on the screen. It might be using flow layout, but the properties for the web form do not seem accessible anyway, as the interface has changed. Any ideas on fixing this issue? Can anyone help me out on the different ways of doing things in VS 2005 compared to VS 2003?
