    Default Problem with Absolute Layout Lining up with Background

    I am using an absolute layout container with a background image, and my positioning is not lining up withe background. I have attached two snips of the problem Capture 1 shows the boxes lined up in the layout, and Capture shows a working preview of the layout. Any ideas why things aren't lining up?

    I don't have an answer for you. But as I suggested in my message to you about this a couple days ago, this can be a bit frustrating. I've done what you're doing. Once. After that I vowed to just recreate everything with regular HTML and CSS.

    Once upon a time I used this method of GUI development with frustrating results. I made a quick test (see screenshots below ...the control is offset significantly from its intended location). I too don't have an answer but echo what Steve said. I just create it from scratch. On Top of the offsetting issue I've had working absolute containers, with a lot of controls, that worked great. But once I updated my developer every single control disappeared from the absolute container. My reaction wasn't pretty ...
