DataGrid Edit TextBox

Posts: n/a
Hi NG.

I'm having trouble controling the size of the textboxes that appear when the
user clicks the "edit" button for a row in my datagrid.
I know it can be done and I know it doesn't require much, but I just can't
seem to find out how to anyway.

If anyone could help me out with this little problem it would be much

Hi, Aidal, you have two ways to do it. If you are using the BoundColumn, then
you can set the width of textbox in the ItemCreated event.

protected void dgrd_ItemCreated(Object sender, DataGridItemEventArgs e)
if(e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.EditItem)
TextBox txt = (TextBox)e.Item.Cells[X].Controls[0];
txt.Width = < the width you want it to be>;

Another way is set the TextBox's width declaractively in the TemplateColumn.

Hope this helps....
