    I have created a Custom Layout Widget following and added custom styles to divs without altering standard styles.

    1.  i goto backend and drag my custom layout on to the template.
    2.  Then goto content section and drag a content block and add content to it.
    3. Publish and preview it Works fine.
    4. Go back to backend click edit and change custom layout widgets properties like Width or CssClass
    5. Save and Preview, content is missing from the page.
    6. Reopen the page in Edit mode content is shown at the top as Orphaned

    Here is my Template
    <%@ Control Language="C#" %>
    <div id="Div1" runat="server" class="sf_cols">
        <div id="Div2" runat="server" class="sf_colsOut sf_1col_1_100">
                    <div id="Div3" runat="server" class="sf_colsIn sf_1col_1in_100 inner-page-content">

    toolbox data is as shown


    add enabled="True" type="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.LayoutControl, Telerik.Sitefinity, Version=4.2.1650.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b28c218413bdf563" title="Test Block" description="Test Block" layoutTemplate="~/TemplateControls/TestBlock.ascx" visibilityMode="None" name="Test Block" />

    Hello Naveen,

    I was able to reproduce the problem - this seems like a bug with the custom layout controls. I have logged it in our internal bug tracking system. Apologies for the inconvenience.
