Increase Width of GridView Column

How do I increase the default width of a gridview column (just one column,
the 10th column, named "Notes")?

In design mode, I changed the width properties of the HeaderStyle,
ControlStyle, and ItemStyle to 300 px and set Wrap to False for the
HeaderStyle and ItemStyle. When I accept settings the "Notes" field widens in
design mode but when I run the web site, the Notes field is back to default
width.

PS - My gridview is bound to SqlDataSource1 which is a SELECT statement to a
SQL Server 2005 database table.

There was no way for you to know it (except maybe by browsing through some
of the previous questions in this newsgroup before posting yours - always a
recommended practice) , but this is a classic (COM-based) asp newsgroup.
ASP.Net bears very little resemblance to classic ASP so, while you may be
lucky enough to find a dotnet-knowledgeable person here who can answer your
question, you can eliminate the luck factor by posting your question to a
group where those dotnet-knowledgeable people hang out. I suggest
microsoft.publi c.dotnet.framew ork.aspnet or the forums at www.asp.net.

I have difficulties adjusting the column width of a gridview control. The column width changes appear in the design grid, but at run-time the width changes back to what I presume are the grid's default settings. Idem for the pager settings: the page settings are spread over the grid width (justified) instead of being grouped on the left hand side. I tried changing various settings and adding some CSS to no avail. Thanks for any...

I'm setting the column with for a gridview (25+- columns) and have paging turned on. When the gridview is first displayed, the column widths are all set to the default. But after paging to another page, the widths are set as they should be. Going back to page one, the widths are still correct. Not a clue what's going on here!

I am trying to set the width of one of the columns of an asp.net 2.0 Gridview control.

I have a Gridview binding to a DataTable source. I'd like to set the column with of the second column. I cannot do this apparently because when AutoGenerateColumns=true, they do not appear in the columns collection. I modified the RowCreated even to gridview, and I can change properties on the cells, but not width. (setting tooltip, background color, etc, all work but changing width has no effect). Here's sample code I am using:

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
