Hi,

I have a very simple web application.


I am having trouble using getting the controls to look ok in the data grid.

 I cannot seem to get the columns to align and i'm finding it very frustrating!

alignment
Here's my code:

 <asp:GridView ID="dgrInserts" runat="server" Width="90%" HorizontalAlign="Center" AllowSorting="true" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataKeyNames="Contracter, Bay, Trailer" CellPadding="4" ForeColor="#8fd400" GridLines="None" DataSourceID="sqlInserts" OnRowDataBound="dgrInserts_DataBound">
                <RowStyle BackColor="#EFF3FB" />
                <FooterStyle BackColor="#507CD1" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
                <PagerStyle BackColor="#2461BF" ForeColor="White" HorizontalAlign="Center" />
                <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#D1DDF1" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#333333" />
                <HeaderStyle BackColor="#8fd400" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" HorizontalAlign="Center" />
                <EditRowStyle BackColor="#2461BF" />
                <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="White" />
            <Columns>
                <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Reg Number In" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center"><ItemTemplate><asp:TextBox ID="tbReg" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("RegistrationIn") %>' Width="100px" /></ItemTemplate></asp:TemplateField>
                <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Driver/Contractor" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center"><ItemTemplate><asp:DropDownList ID="ddlContractor" runat="server" AutoPostBack="true" OnSelectedIndexChanged="ddlContractor_SelectedIndexChanged" AppendDataBoundItems="true" Width="80px"><asp:ListItem Text="Please select..." Value="" /></asp:DropDownList></ItemTemplate></asp:TemplateField>
                <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Remarks" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center"><ItemTemplate><asp:TextBox ID="tbRemarks" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Remarks") %>' /></ItemTemplate></asp:TemplateField>
                <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Trailer" SortExpression="Trailer" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center"><ItemTemplate>
                    <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlTrailer" runat="server" AppendDataBoundItems="true" Width="80px">
                    <asp:ListItem Text="Please select..." Value="" />
                </asp:DropDownList><asp:TextBox ID="tbTrailer" runat="server"/>
                </ItemTemplate></asp:TemplateField>
                <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Bay" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center"><ItemTemplate><asp:DropDownList ID="ddlBay" runat="server" Width="80px" /></ItemTemplate></asp:TemplateField>
                <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Checked In?" SortExpression="TimeIn" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center"><ItemTemplate><asp:CheckBox ID="cbTimeIn" runat="server" AutoPostBack="true" OnClick="return Validate(this, this.id);" OnCheckedChanged="cbIn_CheckedChanged" />&nbsp;<asp:Label ID="lblTimeIn" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("TimeIn") %>' /></ItemTemplate></asp:TemplateField>
                <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Reg Number Out" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center"><ItemTemplate><asp:TextBox ID="tbRegOut" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("RegistrationOut") %>' Width="80px" /></ItemTemplate></asp:TemplateField>
                <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Checked Out?" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center"><ItemTemplate><asp:CheckBox ID="cbTimeOut" runat="server" AutoPostBack="true" OnCheckedChanged="cbOut_CheckedChanged" />&nbsp;<asp:Label ID="lblTimeOut" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("TimeOut") %>' /><asp:HiddenField ID="hidID" runat="server" Value='<%# Eval("ID") %>' /></ItemTemplate></asp:TemplateField>
            </Columns>
            </asp:GridView>

I would like

1. The controls to just be aligned to one and other in each column.
2. The trailer column to have the dropdown and then the text box next to it.

Please help before I literally pull my hair out!

Thanks

Please check with CSS styles defined for these columns.
Problems occurs after applying css styles, so check with each styles and modify accordingly!

Note: In styles, measurement in % is good for height or width rather than fixed value.
Like:
.somestyle{ width:100%}  /* Good Style case */
.somestyle{ width:100px}  /* not good for some case (like responsiveness) */
