Is there a Dock.Fill comparable in Webforms?

In a Winform, I have Dock options in properties, where I can dock to the top, bottom or even fill.  I am converting a Winform to a Webform.  I can't seem to find this option in properties.  

What is the secret to docking a textbox in a table cell so it fills it up (can grow if someone maximizes the screen)?

Sadly there s no Dock property, because the UI (html markup) depends on web technologies like HTML and CSS.
Regarding your question you can add a container div and set the width and height to 100%.

Please remember that conversion is like to like but there is no 100% win form equivalents (contrary to popular demand a desktop app has a far more rich UI experience than a web app) and layouts are different. I am currently converting a Delphi app into ASP.NET and we try to keep it simple by using CSS frameworks like bootstrap. I know it takes a bit to learn but the time savings of dealing with all the different CSS behaviours  of IE versions and other browsers is learning time worth spending.

Thanks for answering.  I have never worked with some of the new options available in webforms (panels etc.) so didn't know if there was a secret docking source somewhere.
