I have a gridview that I'm trying to limit the width of a column. I'm using this  code to set the width:

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Note"  >
                                 <EditItemTemplate>
                                     <asp:Label ID="Label1" width="100px" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("note") %>'></asp:Label>
                                 </EditItemTemplate>
                                 <ItemTemplate>
                                     <asp:Label ID="Label1" width="100px" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("note") %>'></asp:Label>
                                 </ItemTemplate>
                                 <ItemStyle Width="100px" Wrap="False" />
                             </asp:TemplateField>

The result is the cell is only 100px but the data is full length and extends into the adjoining column.  

My goal is to only display a short amount of text and when the user clicks on the cell a popup window will open displaying the entire contents.

Any suggestions?
