Vertical Alignment and TextBox size

87 New Member

Unaccountably, I cannot set the height of the textbox when using pixels. I wanted the height to match the xx-small font, about "14px", but I found that I had to use "40%" for the height. The "14px" actually worked in the design view, but not at runtime.

So why was the "px" ignored at runtime, but the % worked fine?
Is there an equivalent float for the vertical?

I also plan to use a hovering clickable tooltip (eventually) for the sql filter selections instead of having those start/stop boxes next to the large report buttons. For now, I just want to get it to work and can add the hover stuff later.

thanks again

As far as I know there is no easy way to align things vertically.

You could do a cheat where you set the line-height the same as the height of the <div> (or Panel).....I don't know if this'll work with your button though.

All of your questions are better asked in the CSS forum :)

I've moved your question there.

PS. How did you set the Height and Width of the TextBoxes?
Please post your asp code for this.

Can this be translated into English...um... I mean HTML? :)

Actually, can someone show the generated markup without the asp stuff.

TextBox = <input type='text'>
Panel = <div>
Button = <input type='submit'> or <input type='button'>

Put it on a public server and provide a clickable link to it in your post. Hard enough to give an answer seeing an issue, much less wasting everyone's time trying to guess at it.

Posting this publicly might be a problem for some ASP.NET web application developers. You will probably have a better chance asking for the HTML for the page.

Granted. Please provide the html file and the css file.

Funny David, thanks a lot, but you could have just said you don't know off the top of your head.

Okay, I've been scouring Google for hours looking for a solution to this problem, but as of yet I can't find one. XHTML Transitional seems to specify that I can no longer set a table's height to 100% and vertically center content inside of it. Therefore, I'm seeking a way, preferably in CSS to vertically center a site. Here's more of a visual to what I have: /********************************

Can't seem to align the text to the top of the textbox when a row is in edit mode. The row expands slightly when going into edit mode because the text aligns on the bottom. If it aligns on top, there would be a smoother transition to edit mode. But I can't get it it work. What attribute would do this? I tried vertical-align and valign, adding it through code and changing the html. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
