Smile Re-Justify of ASP.NEt Page

Hi and TIA:

I have a fairly wide asp.net page with both a GridView (showing current data,which is wide left to right) and a DetaisView (for entering new data).

My problem is that if I make a change in a dropdown list I have in my DetailsView the entire web page "re-justifies" itself so that I loose my menu on the left side of the page. Page scrolls right and I loose my menu visibility.

This happens when I have "narrowed" my page so that the entire left to right is NOT visible. If I have the page maximized, of course, there is no problem. Not being able to see all of the GridView data in a "narrowed" page is OK as I figure the user can scroll left to right

What I would like is that when I make a change in my drop down list the page either stays the same (in orientation) or gives me a scroll left. Making a dropdownlist change should not re-justify my entire web page.

I've done some looking but no luck so far.

Thank you,

Hi Cliff,

Since this is not related to my book directly you're far better off posting this in a genera ASP.NET category here: http://p2p.wrox.com/asp-net-4-5-709/ That way you'll attract more viewers.

That said: it sounds like a CSS issue. If the data i the Grid changes, then the browser can divide the available width across all columns in a different way and / or resize the entire grid.

Try setting an explicit width on the grid ad its columns.

If that doesn't help, please supply a lot more information and code.
