Increase Gridview Column Width

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

I've come across many articles and nothing seems to work for me.

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

Just check whither your other styles are overriding your item's

Hello, I am using ASP.NET 2.0. What I have done is nested a gridview inside another column of a gridview using a template data field column declaritively in my web form.

Hello, I have a GridView in my page which is created in runtime. It works fine.

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!

Hi, here's my problem in short: Text boxes in gridview don't seem to hold their value if the column's .Visible property is changed back and forth. I've got a form with a gridview populated from a data view (which in turn is loaded from a manually setup DataTable for testing purposes). One of the columns in the grid is a checkbox that's tied to an event handler that'll change the .Visible property of a column with a text box. That text...

ASP.NET 2.0 I've got problems with the right column in my GridView. The GridView consist of 2 columns, the problem column is the column on the right side. The problem is that it looks like there is a huge space between the 2 columns, see the huge grey space between the 2 columns. I want the columns to be very close to each other with only 10px open space between the columns. Now it looks like there is a 160px margin between them

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,...
