Hi

I am trying to widen my first template field to 600 as shown below but the field seems to                                   <HeaderStyle Width="600px" />
remain the same narrow size

            <asp:GridView ID="GridView_Questions" runat="server" BackColor="White"
                BorderColor="#3366CC" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px" CellPadding="4"
                Height="147px" Visible="False" Width="795px">
                <Columns>
       
                               <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Question">

                               </asp:TemplateField>

I also tried the following which didn't work either
            <asp:GridView ID="GridView_Questions" runat="server" BackColor="White"
                BorderColor="#3366CC" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px" CellPadding="4"
                Height="147px" Visible="False" Width="795px">
                <Columns>
       
                               <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Question" ControlStyle-Height="220"
            ControlStyle-Width="700">
                                   <ControlStyle Height="220px" Width="700px" />
                                   <HeaderStyle HorizontalAlign="Left" />

                               </asp:TemplateField>

What you are doing should probably work, but I set the theme for my gridviews in a .skin file that work for me.

<asp:GridView CellPadding="5" AutoGenerateColumns="False" GridLines="Horizontal" runat="server" BorderColor="Black"
        BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1" ForeColor="#333333" Font-Names="Verdana"
        EnableSortingAndPagingCallbacks="True" AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="True" >
    <PagerSettings Position="TopAndBottom" PageButtonCount="20" />
    <RowStyle BackColor="#ffffff" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px" BorderColor="Black" Font-Size="10px" />
    <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#e8e8e8" HorizontalAlign="Left" />
    <FooterStyle BackColor="#6699FF" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
    <PagerStyle BackColor="White" ForeColor="Black" Font-Bold="True" />
    <HeaderStyle BackColor="#DCEDE5" ForeColor="Black" Font-Size="10px"/>
    <FooterStyle BackColor="#DCEDE5" ForeColor="Black" Font-Size="11px" Font-Bold="True"/>
    <EditRowStyle BackColor="#FFFF99" ForeColor="Black" Font-Bold="True" />
    <EmptyDataTemplate>
        <center> -- No Records Found -- </center>
    </EmptyDataTemplate>
</asp:GridView>

However I have a few properties in my CSS file that didn't seem to work in the .skin file:

.gridview
      {
            font-size:0.75em;
            width:90%;
      }
      
      .gridview tr
      {
            font-size:0.95em;
            height:auto;
      }
      
      .gridview td
      {
            font-size:1.15em;
      }
      .gridview caption
      {
            text-align:left;
            font-size:0.85em;
            font-weight:bold;
            font-family: Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
            padding: 2px;
            color:Black;
            background-color: #DCEDE5;
            border:solid 1px black;
      }
