How can I control the width of a column in the GridView control.

From searching I see mention of ways to do it before the controls are bound. Is there a simpler way? If not, could someone explain to me how I need to go about it?

Here is the code:

 <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataKeyNames="id"
        DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" EmptyDataText="There are no data records to display."
            <asp:BoundField DataField="id" HeaderText="id" ReadOnly="True" SortExpression="id" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="item" HeaderText="item" SortExpression="item" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="description" HeaderText="description" SortExpression="description" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="price" HeaderText="price" SortExpression="price" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="image_url" HeaderText="image_url" SortExpression="image_url" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="qty" HeaderText="qty" SortExpression="qty" />
    <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:ChaosConnectionString1 %>"
        DeleteCommand="DELETE FROM [audio] WHERE [id] = @id" InsertCommand="INSERT INTO [audio] ([item], [description], [price], [image_url], [qty]) VALUES (@item, @description, @price, @image_url, @qty)"
        ProviderName="<%$ ConnectionStrings:ChaosConnectionString1.ProviderName %>" SelectCommand="SELECT [id], [item], [description], [price], [image_url], [qty] FROM [audio]"
        UpdateCommand="UPDATE [audio] SET [item] = @item, [description] = @description, [price] = @price, [image_url] = @image_url, [qty] = @qty WHERE [id] = @id">
            <asp:Parameter Name="item" Type="String" />
            <asp:Parameter Name="description" Type="String" />
            <asp:Parameter Name="price" Type="Decimal" />
            <asp:Parameter Name="image_url" Type="String" />
            <asp:Parameter Name="qty" Type="Int16" />
            <asp:Parameter Name="item" Type="String" />
            <asp:Parameter Name="description" Type="String" />
            <asp:Parameter Name="price" Type="Decimal" />
            <asp:Parameter Name="image_url" Type="String" />
            <asp:Parameter Name="qty" Type="Int16" />
            <asp:Parameter Name="id" Type="Int16" />
            <asp:Parameter Name="id" Type="Int16" />


Thank you in advance.

 I found that I needed to add a headerstyle tag to a asp:databound field tag.

So now my question is how do I make a row for an image drop below it's item row?

 The rows go straight across but I would like one row inbetween the first row of each item to display an item's picture:

Custom Control within a Control Control
I am developing a custom controls that will render headers for different web sites. Within these controls, I want to place another custom control that will change the language.

This question is probably posted but i did not bother to look at 10,000+ posts so i am sorry. I've seen the tutorial where he builds a dataset and uses a gridview and controls the gridview with the drop down list box.

I've looked at the grid view properties but couldn't find where i can add another parameter. Is it possible to control a grid view (or any form of displaying the information) with more than 1 controller? Thank You.  ...

Precise Control over GridView controls?
Hi.When you create a GridView in visual studios and bind it to, say, an SqlDataSource, it automatically creates fields and templates according to the types retrieved from the data source. (ie, it creates a Label for number/string columns, checkboxField for booleans, etc).

SqlDataSource Control and Gridview control
