Newbie to asp c# .net


I have a grid view on a form..(not the sitemaster form).
I keep getting the headers of the grid to flow off the form.
The need the white space to fill up to the edge of the last header column.


Thanks

surround your gridview in a div:

<div style="overflow-x:auto;width:1024px">  <!-- or 100% -->
<asp:GridView />

</div>

What compiler are you using?  

overflow-x is a CSS3 property:
http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css3_pr_overflow-x.asp

note that you can write it out like that.  You'll get the warning but it should work in the browser as long as the browser supports css 3.

you could just change to overflow: auto as well.

even with this code:
The overflow: auto  still is not working.
<div style="overflow:auto;width:2024px">  <!-- or 100% -->

 <asp:GridView ID="RSVPGridview" runat="server" HeaderStyle-BackColor="#3AC0F2"  OnRowDataBound="RSVPGridview_RowDataBound" 
            HeaderStyle-ForeColor="White" OnSelectedIndexChanged="RSVP_Click" 
            DataSourceID="SqlDataSourceRSVPGridview" CellSpacing="5" GridLines="None" >

            <Columns>
                <asp:CommandField ShowSelectButton="True" />

            </Columns>


<HeaderStyle BackColor="#CCCCCC" ForeColor="Black"></HeaderStyle>

</asp:GridView>

</div>

how wide is the form.  The div looks like it's in the correct place.  
You could also try specifying a css class:
.myGrid
{
       width:1024px;
}


<asp:GridView cssClass ="myGrid"

You need to apply styles to <asp:GridView>
I already suggested to apply styles to Grid,

<style>.divContainer{
overflow-x: scroll; 
width: 1000px; 
Height: 300px; 
position:relative;
}
.gridview{
position:inherit;overflow:auto;
}
</style>
<div class="divContainer">
   <asp:GridView id="GridView1" cssClass="gridview" runat="server"  />
</div>

Open in new window


Try changing overflow and position values to work your solution!

VS 2010 doesn't work well with html5.  The errors that you're seeing don't mean that the page won't render correctly.  The errors in the html page for that type can safely be ignored.  The main thing is the output after the fact.
