    Hi all,

    I've built customs controls with VS 2005, now I've recompiled and use them
    in the new VS 2008 but the controls no longer works as for positioning. I
    can't even move them in the designer.
    I've notice that the "me" object in the "render" event on the control no
    longer has values for style("top") or style("left") ect. Thats what I was
    using to position the control. Here's a code snippet of one of my control's
    render event.

    writer.AddStyleAttribute("LEFT", "100px")
    writer.AddStyleAttribute("TOP", "100px")
    writer.AddStyleAttribute("POSITION", "Absolute")
    writer.AddStyleAttribute("Z-INDEX", Me.Style("Z-INDEX"))


    writer.RenderBeginTag("div class=""HQCheckBox"" id='jsObj_" & Me.ID & "'
    name='jsObj_" & Me.ID & "'")

    writer.Write(("<script language=""javascript"">initChkBox('" & Me.ID &
    "');</script>") & vbCr)
