Default ASP.net web forms and screen resolution

My web pages looks fine for screen resolutions over 1280 * 1024. But when it is anything less than that or 800*600 the whole display is messed up. How can i solve this problem?

This must be a common problem I guess.
So how do you tackle this issue while designing the screen itself so that it works for all resolutions..?

You can't design a user interface that will work for all resolutions. The best you can do is build a simple and flexible interface that can adjust to the user's browser layout.

I suspect that most users are going to run in at least 800x600, if not 1024x768 so it's reasonable to make a layout that is good in the latter and acceptable in the former.

Hi Monika;
if we apply css to all controls on page and the tables' widths and heights are given in percentage, it works fine in all resolutions.
now dot net provides master page also which will make it easy.

I agreed with 'p2pMember'. This can work perfeclty on % and using MasterPage is plus point for that.

I highly recommend the following websites for information on CSS layout and design:


There are ways to layout website templates that are "liquid", meaning they have one or more content sections with flexible width that do a reasonably good job adjusting to any screen size/browser width.
