Newbie question

P: n/a
I am new to Visual Web Developer 2005 Expres.

I am using absolute positioning and every time I add a button control to my
web form its width extends all the way to the edge of the page. IOW I get a
long skinny button that extends to the right side of the browser.

This does not appear to happen with other controls. Any idea why it happens
to the button?

Here is how the button looks in source code:
<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" OnClick="Button1_Click"
Style="z-index: 100; left: 186px; position: absolute; top: 147px"
Text="Button" />

Hi Dave,

From your description the button is expanded even though its width is not
set in the aspx, correct?

The source code you provided works fine on my side.

There're two possible reasons I can think of that can cause this problem.

1. You're probably using Style or Theme for the ASP.NET button control that
would affect the Width of the button.
2. Width of the button may be hard coded in the code behind.

Please check if my guess is correct. If it still doesn't work please send a
demo project to me. I'll try to find the root cause and tell you how to fix
it. My email is v-******@microsoft.com.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for your project. Based on my research, this is a known issue of IE.

A workaround is to fix the width of the button. For example you can try
this:

<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" OnClick="Button1_Click"
Style="z-index: 100;
left: 186px; position: absolute; top: 147px; width:60px"
Text="Button" />

Thanks Allen. Setting the width attribute fixes the problem

Is this a known issue for IE7 only or all versions of IE?

So if no width attribute is specified, IE will not display the button
correctly?

Hi Dave,

Thanks for your updating. This is a known issue of IE 7 (and IE 8 if you
run it in IE 7 Emulation mode). The button will be incorrectly expanded if
we set both left and position: absolute to it.

Currently besides fixing the width of the button we can also set position:
relative style to body element, which I think is a better workaround.

We're now investigating this issue.

Thank you for highlighting it and please let me know if you have any
further questions.

Allen Chen
