Bar Heights - visual studio 2005

I'm creating my own version of a bar chart.  I am having difficulties with the height properties.... For example, if I use a textbox, panel, label, image, etc... I change the properties’ height based some math for this bar of the 'chart'...  the problem is... the height changes DOWNWARD... rather than the desired upward... in other words, I would like the object to grow up, rather than downward... this is a webform, so I can’t use an anchor property... is there a way to absolutely position an object by its bottom?

Thanks!

This really depends on how you are drawing the bars. If you are using a table and filling a cell with a coloured image you could simply fix the hieight of the row to the maximum bar height (say 300px) and then place the sized gif (say height=250px, width=20px) in to the cell with a valign=bottom attribute. (By the way, to generate the bar image simply create a 1px by 1px gif the the appropriate colour an dthen set the height and width in the html. The image will automatically be streatched to the specified diemnsions).

Prehaps a better way to do it is to use css positioning and simply specify a div to create the bars...
     <div height=250 width=20 left=10 bottom=300 color=red float=left />

You's need to refer to a css reference for all the options on how to do this but the web is full of these.
