How to set textboxes width when detailsview is in Edit Mode?

Hi, I'm using vs2013, asp.net web form and C#.
In default readonly mode, I set the header to 15% of width, that's first column.  The 2nd column then by default is 85%.  I only have 2 columns.  All text displayed to the max length in the 2nd column, no problem.

I set datasource to a data table object that I created and populated with a web service call.  I do not have each bound filed identified in my code.

In code, when I set the control to Edit mode, the 1st column still appears to be 15% and 2nd column 85% but all the textboxes in 2nd column is too short.  How can I specify for these text boxes to use the entire 2nd column or most of it?
Thank you.

if you have boundfield in aspx, try using <ControlStyle Width="100%" /> for the textbox. otherwise,

try
 protected void theDetailsView_DataBound(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (theDetailsView.CurrentMode.Equals(DetailsViewMode.Edit))
            {
                TextBox tbox = theDetailsView.Rows[1].Cells[1].Controls[0] as TextBox;
                if (tbox != null)
                {
                    tbox.Width = new Unit(100, UnitType.Percentage);
                    //tbox.TextMode = TextBoxMode.MultiLine;
                   // tbox.Rows = 3;
                }
            }
        }
