I have a gridview and I want to fix the column size to a certain size regardless of the length of the data in a given cell.
I have tried everythign I can think of from

gvwProjects.Columns[1].ItemStyle.Width

gvwProjects.Columns[1].ItemStyle.Wrap

to setting the length of the lblContol in the template but no matter what I do the column size automatically increases beyond my fixed size to meet the size of the longest cell in the bound datatable.


Anyone have any ideas?
