Absolute Position

Hello everybody,

I need help, with positioning a DIV in a DIV. Normaly I set the outer DIV to relative position and the inner div to absolute position. How does that work in sculptor?

Can I position the DIVs only with float and margin?

Currently the position attribute is not exposed through the interface, so yes you would have to use left-margin and float to accomplish your design.

What advantages do you find in using absolute to position? Is there something you are trying to do that you can't get right using the supplied arguments? What advantages do you see in using absolute positioning instead of margins and float?

Did this help? Tips are appreciated...


Well, I find it easier to position parts of the grafic. I use a background grafic and then i post some other grafics over it. cause i work with fixed width so it is easiert, to say. put that 0,0 from right or put that 100,40 from left.

if i do it with float its a little bit more try and error till i got the result i need.

that why i miss it.
