In order to to contro the width I think you will need to create the columns on your own instead of letting VS do it for you.

Agreed. Create the columns manually and set their widths however you want them.  You will have to create the EditItemTemplates for each, and this means adding a textbox for each.  Give the textbox an id and set the width property to "100%".  This will make the textbox fill whatever width you gave to the template column.

I have tried this way, it works very well;however, i am adding programatically datacolumns to the dataset and if i use manual EditItemtemplate for each just added column i have to manually add a new EditItemTemplate. IF i use autogenaratecolumns property i dont have to add manually new columns.But thanks any way. I wil try to go around.
