Set Width of GridView TextBox in Edit mode

To modify the width of a TextBox (inside the GridView control) when the GridView is in Edit Mode, use any of the two approaches:

Using ControlStyle

<asp:GridView ID="gvCustom" runat="server">
asp:BoundField DataField="EmpID" HeaderText="EmployeeID" >
ControlStyle Width="150" />

Use ControlStyle CSS Class (Recommended)

<style type="text/css">
width: 150px;

and in the GridView

<asp:GridView ID="gvCustom" runat="server">
<asp:BoundField DataField="EmpID" HeaderText="EmployeeID"
ControlStyle-CssClass="cssWdth" />
