Normally what I created a static website, I place everything in tables. This allows them to resize along with the browser. As I'm working with .NET I notice everything seems to be placed with absolute values. Is there a way to use the GUI to place everything
(controls and such) in a table object? I place a table object but it doesn't let me drag a control into it to place it. Note: using 2003. Any direction would be great. Thanks.

You need to use "Flow layout".
Change to Design View, right click on the web page and then select Properties from the list of options and you will be presented with the “Document Properties” dialog box. There are a number of settings here but for now select the “Page Layout” property
and change it from “Grid Layout” to “Flow Layout”. Select “OK” and Visual Studio will change the page mode to “Flow Layout”.

That makes sense. Now is there a way to place controls inside a table from design or do I need to manipulate the actual html? I add a table, then add 1 row and 1 cell, yet it doesn't let me drag like a button control in it. I would assume it would allow
this. Any thoughts?
