Two ways to do this:-
1. use ondatabound event, find the control and trim its text using trim method of string instance.
2. convert your bound field to TemplateField and do something like this:-

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Bulletin" >
<ItemTemplate>
<asp:Label ID="LabelBulletin" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Bulletin").ToString().Substring(0,Math.Min(20,Eval("Bulletin").ToString().Length))+"...." %>'></asp:Label>
</ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateField>

For trimming values in gridview follow this code-


private void dataGridView1_CellFormatting(object sender, DataGridViewCellFormattingEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.RowIndex > -1)
           {
                if (e.Value != null)
               {
                   e.Value = e.Value.ToString().Trim();
                }
           }  
      }

update the cell data using RowDataBound event as like below.
protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs e)
{

	if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow) {

		for (i = 0; i <= e.Row.Cells.Count - 1; i++) {
			e.Row.Cells[i].Text = e.Row.Cells[i].Text.Trim();

		}

	}

}
