I have two divs that are floated right, but they are in the wrong order against the right edge of the parent div:

both float right
How can I ... "switch" them around?

I know the rules that govern floating are complex, so I appreciate any help you can give me.


Here is my current markup:

<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="Preservation.ascx.cs"
    Inherits="Reo.ContentControls.Preservation" %>
<%@ Register Src="AssetFrameNavigation.ascx" TagName="AssetFrameNavigation" TagPrefix="uc2" %>
<%@ Register Assembly="Framework" Namespace="Framework.UIControls" TagPrefix="cc1" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="uc1" TagName="DateCalender" Src="~/Controls/DateCalendar.ascx" %>

or throw them in a container, and float the container instead.

Try this:
1: Add divs inside another div and float it right:

<div style="float:right;">
        <div id="divserviceslabel" runat="server">Total Approved Preservation Bids:</div>
        <div id="divservicestotal" runat="server">$600.00</div>
    </div>

Open in new window


2: and make the divs float left:
 $('div[id*="divserviceslabel"]').css('float', 'left');
 $('div[id*="divservicestotal"]').css('float', 'left');
