Hi,

There are a couple of ways to solved, but an easy one is use a table

    <table>
        <tr>
            <td>
                <div id = "Switch" style= "background-color:blue; height:300px; left:0px; top:0px; width:20px"></div>
            </td>
            <td>
                <div id = "chart" style = "background-color:Olive;left:0px; top: 0px;height:300px"></div>                              
            </td>
        </tr>
    </table>  

Hope that helps

Hi guys,

I converted it into float: left and it seesm to work fine. Thank you.

Then it made me curious and I though to try the tables and then it did nto produce good results. My code is as following:

<table style= "background-color:Gray;">
    <tr>
    <td id = "Switch" style= "background-color:blue; height:100px; top:0px; width:10%;"></td>
    <td id = "chart" style = "background-color:Olive; top:0px; height:100px; width:90%;"></td>
    </tr>
   
    <tr id = "container" style = " position:relative; left:100px; top:0px;">              
    <asp:GridView ID="GvRegistration" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
            BackColor="White" BorderColor="#CCCCCC" BorderStyle="None" BorderWidth="1px"
            CellPadding="4" ForeColor="Black" GridLines="Horizontal" Height="454px"
            Width="406px" AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="True"    
        onsorting="GvRegistration_Sorting">
        <FooterStyle BackColor="#CCCC99" ForeColor="Black" />
        <HeaderStyle BackColor="#333333" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
        <PagerStyle BackColor="White" ForeColor="Black" HorizontalAlign="Right" />
        <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#CC3333" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
        <SortedAscendingCellStyle BackColor="#F7F7F7" />
        <SortedAscendingHeaderStyle BackColor="#4B4B4B" />
        <SortedDescendingCellStyle BackColor="#E5E5E5" />
        <SortedDescendingHeaderStyle BackColor="#242121" />
    </asp:GridView>
    </tr>
    </table>

I noticed you left your table data <td> container</td> out in your last <tr> table row</tr>
I don't have your ASP form so i filled
I think most designers accept divs as a solution over tables...google tables versus divs
