ASP.Net GridView with horizontal scrollbar

Hi,

I have developed a page which creates a gridview object with the number of columns determined at runtime.

The number of columns can get very large, and in this case the columns are all made narrow to fit the page, with a great deal of wrapping of text, making the table hard to follow.

Is there a way to apply a horizontal scrollbar to the gridview, so that the columns are all shown in full, and the user scrolls right to see the full width of the table?

Thanks!

Enclose the GridView inside of a <div style="overflow-x:auto;width:800px">...</div> tag.

I tried that, but the table inside is still rendering at the page width, rather than making itself sufficiently wide and then scrolling left/right

I managed to make this solution work with  the addition of  Wrap="False" in the GridView
