GridView Edit Box

Posted on 2011-03-07
Last Modified: 2013-11-05
OK, I have a page with a GridView.  

I allow editing a row and it all works fine, except the edit box is too small.  My customer rightfully complains that it only show 3-4 words.

Where can the size of the little box be changed?
 Pls see image.

Thanks, Jim in Florida
