In a gridview like :

<ItemStyle HorizontalAlign="Left" Width="10px" Wrap="True" /> </asp:BoundField>

When set Wrap="False", it ignores Width="10px". It uses as much as it needs to display the data in full.

Question: Is there any way to have Wrap="False" and force not to exceed 10px?

Thank you.

The simplest way would be to apply a CSS style to your page to add an overflow style to your td elements by adding the following to the HEAD section of your page:
<style type="text/css">
   td { overflow: hidden; }
</style>

Open in new window

Bear in mind that would apply to all td elements. If you just wanted it for the single column you would need to add the CssClass attribute to your ItemStyle and then create a named CSS style.
