Forms Data Controls :: Make GridView Column Fixed In Width?

How to set the GridView column fixed in width size whether there is data in the column cell or not. I try below code using "ItemStyle-Width" in the BoundField control to fix the column width but column became narrower if there is no data to display in it. Is this a no solution of ASP Gridview control ?

Forms Data Controls :: GridView Column Set Fixed Width
I am trying to set the width of each column within my gridview. Problem is that none of it is working. I have tried setting the whole grid view to 100% and then break down each individual column to a certain percentage, tried manually adjusting Header Width, Item Style width, tried setting it in code, I have tried just about everything and the column doesn't want to budge. The only time I can adjust the width of the column/cell is when I do it in SQL, but because they are requesting the tooltip to preview the comment I would like to pursue my options doing it on the page itself.

//Code protected void grdComments_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
{//Setting the tooltip for the comment column and column width.
grdComments.Columns[3].ItemStyle.Width = Unit.Pixel(100);
//e.Row.Cells[3].Width = Unit.Pixel(100);
e.Row.Cells[3].Wrap = false;
e.Row.Cells[3].Style["overflow"] = "hidden";
e.Row.Cells[3].Style["text-overflow"] = "ellipsis";
e.Row.Cells[3].ToolTip = e.Row.Cells[3].Text; }

Forms Data Controls :: Set The Columns Width To Fixed Value In Gridview?
how to set the fixed value with the columns in a grid view? my code works fine if you have normal words with space. If the length of the whole field is more than its width, It would come to the next line. But If we type big word without any space like "WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW", It would by default increase the width and disturbs the layout.

Forms Data Controls :: How To Make Fixed Header In GridView
I am able to put gridview inside asp:panel and scrolling works too. But the moment I down, the header of gridView scrolls above inside the panel and gets hidden.

I just want to scroll rows, not the header. How can I do that?. Following is what I am using.

On a side note, I have tried to wrap gridView in DIV but div doesn't show the scroll bars in the first load for some reason.

I have created a database containing information of 3,000 military veterans using DataView. The display is complete showing all records and I am able to sort on any column. I need to specify the GridView width and the width of individual columns. I have searched the Internet and found no solution to my problem. Here is my code.

<form runat="server">

<asp:boundfield DataField="FirstName" HeaderText="First Name" SortExpression="FirstName">
<asp:boundfield DataField="Street" HeaderText="Street" SortExpression="Street">

<FooterStyle BackColor="#B5C7DE" ForeColor="#4A3C8C" />
<PagerStyle HorizontalAlign="Right" BackColor="#E7E7FF" Font-Bold="True" Font-Names="Arial" Font-Size="Smaller" ForeColor="#4A3C8C" Wrap="False" Width="15px" />
<SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#738A9C" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#F7F7F7" Wrap="False" />
<HeaderStyle HorizontalAlign="Left" Wrap="False" BackColor="#4A3C8C" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#F7F7F7" Font-Size="Small" Width="15px" />

<asp:AccessDataSource runat="server" DataFile="Brigade DB1.mdb" SelectCommand="SELECT [LastName], [FirstName], [Street], [City], [State], [Zip], [Phone], [Email], [Years], [UnitName] FROM [Membership]">

Can anyone provide me with the additional code to size the Gridview and the columns?

Forms Data Controls :: Unable To Set GridView Column Width
I have been searchingthe internet for a solution to this for hours. I have tried all of the following methods to set the column width on my GridView control:

1. <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="ColumnHeader" ItemStyle-Width="100px">
2. <ItemStyle Width="100px" Wrap="False" />
3. GridView.Columns[0].ItemStyle.Width = 100 both on the PageLoad event and, out of desperation, on the RowDataBound event.

I have tried these settings by themselves and in combination. I have also experimented with different CSS width settings for the GridView and its containing<div> (including none) to no avail. The GridView columns are always equally spaced and wrap the row description text in the first column in a rather ugly fashion. As this needs to be fixed for a presentation to a client on Monday, I would be eternally grateful to anyone who could point me in the right direction.

Forms Data Controls :: How To Control Gridview's Column Width
How do I control the gridview's column width wherein my gridview is dynamically populated from a dataset. What I want to achieve is to have a somewhat uniform column width for all column entries. I have already tried specifying the Itemstyle-width = "desired column" width but still the content of the dataset still dictates the final width of the column. When I also try to set the ItemStyle-Warp = false, it does not still give me the desired effect because it will just increase the column width to fit the content of the dataset. I think to achieve my desired effect and since some contents of the dataset are long, the solution would be to truncate the dataset prior to binding it to the gridview but I don't know how.

Forms Data Controls :: Manually Setting The Column Width On GridView Columns?
I have aGridView with bound columns, for which I am manually setting the ItemWidth and HeaderWidth to 500px, and nothing happens.Is there some trick to getting this to work?

This is a columna large amount of text in it, and it keeps sizing to the width of the header text, which is simply "note". I don't want to setWrap to false, becuase then the colummn could be thousands of px wide in cases.

Forms Data Controls :: Set Width Of Pager Different From Width Of GridView?
I'musing a PagerTemplatew/ my GridView. The GridViewsits inside a DIV tag that is about 70% of the screen. Thewidth of theGridView is wider than the DIV tag sothe DIV scrolls at the bottom from left to right.The pager is also fixed at the bottom of the screen. The problem is that the width of the pager isthe same width as the GridView, so it extends all the way to the right and displays over the top of the vertical scrollbar.I want the width of the pager to equal the width of the DIV tag no matter how wide the grid is.I tried setting the width within the CssClass & the width properties of the <PagerStyle> to no avail and it doesn't seem to matter if I apply the style to fix the position of the pager or not.
