Do you align your Add/Edit/Delete buttons horizontal and bottom right?

Usually there are problems fitting buttons next to datagrids or listboxes when trying to imply that those buttons add functionality to the datagrid or listbox.

SSW Code Auditor - Select Job
Figure: Bad Example - This form places the Add and Delete buttons in the top right.
SSW Code Auditor - Rules Definition
Figure: Buttons aligned vertically, however they cut off useful information in the datagrid (Better)
SSW Code Auditor - Select Files
Figure: Good Example - Buttons align horizontally at the bottom right of the grid which provides plenty of room for then needed information
