On the GridView Edit the Column than your needing to fix the width of the column and make the cell word-wrap.

<asp:BoundField DataField="title" HeaderText="Title" SortExpression="title" >
    <ItemStyle Width="150px" Wrap="True" />

This is working for me but I'm using a template column.

   <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="location" SortExpression="location" ItemStyle-Width="20px" ItemStyle-Wrap="true">  // add it here.
      <ItemStyle HorizontalAlign="Right" Width="20px" Wrap"true" />      // and add it here.
         <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server"
            NavigateUrl='<%# Eval("location", "GetLocation.aspx?location={0}").ToString()") %>'
            Text='<%# Eval("location") %>'
            Target="_blank" />
         <asp:TextBox  ID="TextBox1" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("location") %>' />
