Hi experts.

Does anyone know how to align tablecell controls horizontally using .net (VB)? i have a table cell containing two controls : a time picker and a date picker (could not find a composite control?) and would like them to appear side by side in the cell.  Would prefer not to create another table column for appearance sake and there does not seem to be a way to split a cell?

Many thanks

you can try and set the table cells HorizontalAlign to HorizontalAlign.Center.
It will probably not put them side to side though, so likely you will have to wrap them in another table, but if the tables border, cellpadding and cellspacing is set to '0' then the table is not visible and it will not affect your layout.

Hope it helps

Hi.

The horizontal alignment option does not work - nor combining this with "wrap" = false.
If I put another table in the cell and add a row to this with two cells - putting one control in each, they do appear side by side but not aligned horizontally.  Modifying the horizontalalignment of these tablecells does not seem to have the desired result either.
I am doing this in VB and not in the design view as I need to be able to add rows dynamically.
Any ideas?
thanks in advance

If it helps, I always do mine in the editor/ code view and never the design mode, lol it always crashes my copy of visual studio! (even after the 255th re-install)
for me i just go:
Dim tab As New Table
Dim tr As New TableRow
Dim tc As New TableCell
tc.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Center

but normally in c# (its alot easier in c#, the language structure is more logical(wait for the comments on that comment of mine!))

ok how about giving the table cells a CssClass, eg:
tc.CssClass() = "tdAlign"
then in your css just add
.tdAlign
{
     white-space:normal;
     text-align: center;
}
or you could add it to the top of your page.
<style>
.tdAlign
{
     white-space:normal;
     text-align: center;
}
</style>

if none of this helps, let me know, but for now, its bed time
