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

Isnt what you provided the answer to your question? If you are looking at passing this value back to the server. you might want to save it to hidden variables...

>> 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?
