    Hello,

    My question is not directly related to RadGrid but concerns a general problem when using a RadGrid which varies its heigth related to contained records .

    I need to display a Page footer in the page containing my grid and it must be the last element in the page.
    Simply putting it in the flow after grid is not Ok because when grid contains only 1 record, I want the fotter to be really in the page footer, not in the center of page.

    I tried to use a fixed position style, 
    <div style=" position:absolute; left:0px; bottom:30px">
    <xx:footer ID='footer1' runat="server" />
    </div>

    But when grid extends its heigth, footer is above grid.

    It is certainly a very common css solution (hope so), but I am learning css little by little ....reading samples and with telerik help.

    So thanks for a little help.

    Hello Dimo,

    Many thanks, that's perfect.
    Nowdays we get plenty of new browser versions (IE7, IE8, FireFox, Safari, ...), could we take for sure they will be able to support css rules presented there without the hacks necessary for IE5, Safari and opera from 2004 ?
    Do you know which purcentage of internet users still use IE5 and Safari ?
    What is the telerik policy according this ?

    Best regards
    CS

    Hi Christian,

    The idea of using web standards is to ensure that everything works fine with new browser versions. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and one needs to test existing applications against new browser versions, even if the applications' HTML and CSS are standard-compliant.

    How many people use IE5? Not many. Here are some statistics regarding browser usage:

    As for our policy regarding browser support - here it is:
