//set the style.width
document.getElementById("txtBoxID").style.width = '300px';

//set a css class
document.getElementById("txtBoxID").className='theClass';

and then provide the css for that element either in an external stylesheet or within a <STYLE> tag:
.theClass{ width: 300px;}

NOTE: you also need to set it's display property to "block":
document.getElementById("txtBoxID").style.width = '300px';
document.getElementById("txtBoxID").style.display= 'block';

or using the class:
.theClass{ width: 300px;display:block;}
