Control with absolute attribute won't be positioned anywhere but middle screen

I’ve got a nifty Button that I’m trying to position at the top right of the screen. However, it wants to position itself directly over the panel in the middle of the screen. With an absolute childLayout and x, y, width, and height values being given, I figured this would work correctly. Apparently I was wrong. Can anyone tell me if I’m doing anything wrong here?

<control name="button" id="closeButton" childLayout="center" visibleToMouse="true" x="696" width="37px" y="23" label="X" height="37px"> <interact onPrimaryClick="exit()" /> </control>

Nevermind. I found out I could just use center childLayout and align & valign it to that corner. Can someone delete this?
