    When you add a new form which is derived from a master form, it shows
    you the asp:content areas where you can add controls etc.

    However, the size of these windows has no bearing as to what size they
    will be when rendered.

    How do you make the content window where you are working bigger so you
    can place controls etc on it ?

    Your content window should grow as your content grows
    For instance - put in an HTML table, and give it a style of :
    style="width:100%;height:1000"

  3. Bear in mind that your controls themselves have no bearing on where they
    will appear in that window - you dictate that using DIV or tables.

    As you add them to a table for example that exceeds the content area size
    the content area will expand.
