ASP.NET Web Form size

MG
It appears that VS.NET limits the size of a web form to the size of
your screen based on the resolution of the machine it's running on. Is
there a way to make the size of a web form larger than the size of the
visible screen at a given resolution ?

Thanks.

VS.NET has absolutely nothing to do with the total size of your page. It is
determined by the HTML content as it always has been.

If you are in FlowLayout mode, then you make your page longer by hitting
[ENTER] and adding more content below what you have already. If you want to
go wider, just add more content to each "line" before you hit [ENTER]. In
this mode, you can just switch to HTML view and look at what content is in
what <P> and go from there.

If you are in GridLayoutMode, then you place controls on the page where you
want them. If you want them further to the right, just drag them past the
right margin and let them go. VS.NET will then allow you to scroll over to
see it. If you want it further down the page, drag it beyond the bottom
margin of the page. In this mode, you can also, just switch over to HTML
view and change the positioning coordinates of the controls manually, since
all you are doing is using Absolute Positioning (CSS 2.0).

I don't think the size of the WebForm is fixed by the resolution of
the screen. You can make any control expand beyond the visible screen
area using the width and height attribute.

Could you explain your problem in greater details?

I was incorrectly thinking that you could specify the physical form
size by specifying the height and width as properties of the form. But
now I realize that with the HTML document model it makes since for the
page content to determine the final screen size.

Thanks.
