Help with user control; textbox and image

I have  a user control.  it consists of a  textbox and image button.  I would like the image to always to be "stuck" to the right hand side of the textbox.  However, depending on the layout of a page which also changes dynamically based on user entry, sometimes the  image button is moved to underneath the textbox, aligned at the left.   How can I prevent this?  I've tried encapsulating in a div, and also tried a table, putting the textbox and image button in a cell.    Neither worked.

Thanks

Well, that did keep it to the right of the textbox, but it still moved down.  See images.  

Also, here is the source:


<div id="divCalendarPopup" style="position:absolute; visibility:hidden; background-color:white;">
</div>

<asp:TextBox ID="txtDate" runat="server"  
            onkeydown="AllowDate(event);"
            width="90px" MaxLength="10"></asp:TextBox>
           
<asp:ImageButton ID="ImageButton1" runat="server" style="float: right"  ImageUrl="../Images/DateSelector.gif" />

<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="txtDateRequiredFieldValidator"
        ControlToValidate="txtDate"
        Text="*" display="static"
        runat="server" />

sir, it's width's issue.
the parent control(tag) which contains textbox and image might not have sufficient width to have both side by side.

in this case create a css class like below:

.fLeft
{
  float: left;
}

and assign this class to both textbox and image.

This works:

<table>
<tr>

<td valign="top">
    <asp:TextBox ID="txtDate" runat="server" onkeydown="AllowDate(event);" width="90px" MaxLength="10"></asp:TextBox>
</td>

<td valign="middle">
    <asp:ImageButton ID="ImageButton1" runat="server" ImageUrl="../Images/DateSelector.gif" />
</td>

<td valign="middle">
    <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator1"
                            ControlToValidate="txtDate" Text="*" display="static" runat="server" />
</td>


</tr>
</table>
