    The position of all Items changes after debugging in Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition?

    I am currently a learner. I have windows 7 installed in my system. I am learning to design website using Visual Web Developer 2008 Express edition but facing a strange problem. I added some text box, some Labels, a Login button at some distance which looked well but when I started Debugging using F5 , the position of every item changed completely. In other words, the position changed so much that the page is looking just un-ordered now. Why this happens and what is the solution?

    Yes this problem is often faced by web developer in early phase. You are facing this type of problem because you havenít used table while arranging your items. So If you want to create a page which remains same even after debugging or Running, then use tables. Follow the following steps to use tables:
    Open the Design Page

    > Now click on Table Tab which is present in the menu bar
    > It will show you many options but select ď Insert TableĒ
    > Customize the table according to your need.For example- Adjust the number of Rows and Column.
    > Now the most important phase comes, Add the item you want to add like-Text box, Label, Check Box etc. Make sure that you are inserting one item in one rectangle only.
    > Now check it by Debugging or by pressing F5 button.
    I am sure your problem will be solved and your page will look ordered.

    ake Tools > Options > HTML Designer > CSS Styling >
    Check 'Change positioning to absolute for controls added using Toolbox, paste or drag and drop'.
    Then, in design page, select form, then in menu.. Format > Position > Positioning Style > Select 'Absolute'.
    Now you will be able to absolute positioning the components...
