Locked buttons keep moving off the panel when displayed

I have an inherited form that has two buttons (Done, Canel) which are
inherited from the base form. Those buttons are locked. When I open my
inherited form the buttons are missing. It turns out that they exist but
they coordinates are about 6000 to the right of the form. If I change the
coordinates to be back on the form, save the form, lock the controls again,
then run the form the buttons are missing again with the coordinates that
again are off the panel.

Does anyone know why this behavior is happening?

yes, I noticed this is one of my applications

I had to set relative coordinates in code to assure they will appear
where I want.

This is because VS designer cannot handle very good inherited forms and
controls (I think).

Note: locking control prevent only you from moving them :) not VS
designer

I hope this helps

Thanks for the quick response and clarification. I will set them via
coordinates.
