			  PagerStyle-HorizontalAlign = "Center" HorizontalAlign="Left" OnEditCommand="gridLenders_EditCommand" OnCancelCommand= "gridLenders_CancelCommand"  OnUpdateCommand="gridLenders_UpdateCommand"
			    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" >
 
          <ItemStyle BackColor="graytext" />
 
          <HeaderStyle BackColor="graytext" />
 
          </asp:BoundColumn>
 
         
 
          <asp:BoundColumn DataField="Lender" HeaderText="Lender">
 
          <ItemStyle BackColor="GhostWhite" />
 
          </asp:BoundColumn>

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>

Protected Sub Item_Created(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DataGridItemEventArgs)
    If e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.EditItem Then

        Dim EditDescription As TextBox = CType(e.Item.Cells(0).Controls(0), TextBox)
        EditDescription.Width = Unit.Parse("500px")

    End If

End Sub
