    Default Custom Controls and Absolute Positioning

    Hi all,

    I have a couple of custom controls that several users of an application are
    using and got a request from one of the guys that they're using Absolute
    positioning and well, turns out my controls don't work right in the designer
    with Absolute Positioning.

    All Controls are based on WebControl

    The control renders properly if the coordinates are set in the Style of the
    control, but the control cannot be dragged around the page.

    Currently the control uses plain Render() logic to render in the designer,
    but just for kicks I also set up a ControlDesigner which doesn't seem to
    help.

    What do I need to do to get the control 'positionable' in Absolute
    positioning?

    Never mind... <s> turns out I had some extra tags around the control that
    were causing the control not be draggable.
