Hi. In my web app I am trying to get the width of an input box and a GridView template column. The two do not look the same size.

What might I be doing wrong. The markup code for them is shown below

<input id="TotalWeight2" runat="server" type="text" placeholder="To"   class="auto-style8" style="font-size: medium; width:75px"/>

Open in new window

                    <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Total Weight" SortExpression="Total Weight" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Left" ItemStyle-Wrap="true" >
                            <asp:Label ID="lblTotalWeight" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("[Total Weight]")%>' Width="75" ></asp:Label>
