Hi,

I have a datagrid with several template columns that are databound.  I was able to change the alignment of the template columns IF the control is a  label but if it is a textbox it doesn't change it.  Anyone has an idea how to change it during design time or run time?  Thanks.

Windows application or Web application?

Cause in Windows Application, you can do this with the tablestyle and columnStyle's properties.

I'm sorry I was not clear in my first comment, this is for a Web application.

You can use css style,

Design time:
http://experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/Q_20680435.html

Run time:
First you need to use FindControl method to get reference to the TextBox control. And then use the Styles property to change the alignment.
      TextBox1.Style.Add("text-align", "right")
