Datagrid - Aligning Items

Hello all,

I need to know if you can vertically align Items within an
ItemTemplate. For example I have two columns, one column
has a stack of 6 textboxes, my second column can have 1 to
n number of textboxes, but when there is only one textbox
I need to be able to anchor it to the top of the column,
at present it centers itself in the middle. Does anyone
have any idea how to accomplish this?

Cheers!

Dave

Hi Dave,

You can set all the cells in your datagrid to be top aligned by defining it
for the items style (if you have alternating styles or edit or select, then
add it there too).
<ItemStyle VerticalAlign=" Top"></ItemStyle>

You can also set it for specific cells in the grid's ItemDataBound event.
The following sets top alignment for every cell in the the second column
(the first cell is zero).

Private Sub DataGrid1_ItemD ataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As
System.Web.UI.W ebControls.Data GridItemEventAr gs) Handles
DataGrid1.ItemD ataBound
e.Item.Cells(1) .VerticalAlign = VerticalAlign.T op
End Sub
Thank you, Mike
