How do I find the position of controls in an asp.net subroutine using vb.net during runtime?

Using javascript...
   var ctrlBounds = Sys.UI.DomElement.getBounds(ctrl);
   
   var x = ctrlBounds.x
   var y = ctrlBounds.y
   var h = ctrlBounds.height
   var w = ctrlBounds.width

>> vb.net during runtime
You cannot use VB .net as a client side scripting lanuguage instead of javascript. Did u mean VB script?

I guess I wasn't considering it client-side.  Is it because browsers will render it differently and therefore client-side is the only way?
