			    OnDeleteCommand= "gridLenders_DeleteCommand" AutoGenerateColumns="false" width="96%" >
 
          
 
        <FooterStyle ForeColor="Black" BackColor="#C6C3C6"></FooterStyle>
 
        <HeaderStyle Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#FFFFFF" 
 
                  BackColor="#A53A6A"></HeaderStyle>
 
       <FooterStyle BackColor="beige" />
       <Columns>
 
        <asp:BoundColumn DataField="Id" HeaderText="ID"  Visible ="false" >

Try setting the bound column control style width for the column either through the designer or via code:

<asp:BoundColumn DataField="Id" HeaderText="ID"  Visible ="false" >
     <ControlStyle Width="100px" />
     <ItemStyle Width="100px" BackColor="graytext" />
     <HeaderStyle BackColor="graytext" />
</asp:BoundColumn>
