Hi Teddy:Layout with the TableLayoutPanel seems to be working ok. Nesting them is not something I ever tried. For really complex dynamic layouts you could use a program to create and position controls in some pre defined manner but that is hard too. For most applications just using a combination of TableLayoutPanels and manually positioned controls should work. If you get too many controls on one form you are tabbing around too much anyway which gets frustrating. I think you can nest the TableLayoutPanel controls but have never tried it. It would get pretty confusing I would think. Layout using the TableLayoutPanel is pretty easy and flexable for the little bit I've worked with it so far.

You may need to have the form selected in the designer, and not another object, and only after that you need to insert the new layout panel.But anyway, it is too bad that we can't use a layout panel inside another one, because most of the time we may need that.And, without beeing able to use well the layout managers in .net when using the design manager, we would need to create the layout manually, and if we do that, we also create the objects manually, so VS.net is almost useless for us.Of course, if we don't consider the IntelliSense.Am I wrong? If somebody considers that yes, please explain for what we could use VS.net in a app that needs complex forms which require using layout managers.Octavian----- Original Message ----- From: "Marvin Hunkin" <startrekcafe@xxxxxxxxx>To: <programmingblind@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Thursday, October 09, 2008 4:19 PM Subject: Table Layout Panel Problems With JawsHi. my friend, helping me out with laying out controls, and it seems to work, and can change location, size, properties. for the first table layout panel.but when i drop a second panel, cannot change the size and location of theheight and width of this table. my friend, says i have dropped the second table inside the first table, instead of going to a blank area of the form. when i have a set of controls, for the first panel, say a couple of text boxes, and a combo box. so how do i set up the second panel, in jaws, and not inside the first panel. is their a technique to do this with vb.dot net. a real pain.do not use window eyes, as my friend, and he can tab to the controls, dropthem, tab back to the form, and drop the panel, but jaws does not seem to allow to do this. any ideas?or maybe some script could be developed, where you could hit a key to jumpto a blank area of the form designer. am i making my self understood? cheers Marvin. __________ View the list's information and change your settings at http://www.freelists.org/list/programmingblind__________View the list's information and change your settings at http://www.freelists.org/list/programmingblind
