Default ASP.NET Design interface

Hello,

Does anybody know if I can turn off some features in the design editor for ASP.NET? Specifically, sometimes, when you click in a table control a certain way, it actually is resizing the table row height, and the new table row looks like this:

<tr>
  <td style="HEIGHT:14px"></td>
  <td style="HEIGHT:14px"></td>
  <td style="HEIGHT:14px"></td>
</tr>

I don't want the editor to even do this; is there a way I can turn off resizing in the Designer?

Thanks,

Brian

Euh, um, no. The VS.NET designer has a very very very bad habit in screwing up your code.
I find that it not only reformats these kind of layouts, but also deletes stuff it doesn't like or understand. In other words, the Visual Designer is near to completely useless, and I never use it except for the initial 3 minutes of a page to drag and drop the controls I need.

I use Dreamweaver for my visual layout stuff and VS.NET for all the coding in Code Behind and other files. You can also wait for next version of Visual Studio (Visual Studio .NET 2005, formerly known as Whidbey), as it comes with a Designer that doesn't touch your HTML (it works really well).

Cheers,

Imar

Thanks. Hopefully they fix some other stuff with the designer, like being able to add/edit more HTML tags than it allows you to.

The editor isn't necessarily that touchy; however, if you get too close to the top or botton of the row when trying to click to enter something within the cell, then sometimes you don't notice it but it will change to a resize and resize your table cells. That's what happens to me frequently.
