I am having a really hard time trying to figure out how to specify the width of a textbox in the insert/edit forms of a grid.  This should be really, really easy...but I can't figure it out.

Hello Cyrus,

You can set the width of a textbox in edit mode dynamically, using the following code:
cs:
protected void RadGrid1_ItemCreated(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)  
    {  
      if (e.Item is GridEditFormItem && e.Item.IsInEditMode)  
       {  
          GridEditFormItem edititem = (GridEditFormItem)e.Item;  
          TextBox textBox = (TextBox)edititem["ColumnUniqueName"].Controls[0];  
          textBox.Width = Unit.Pixel(50);  
       }            
    }  

Another alternative is to set custom column editors declaratively, specifying width and other attributes. Check out the following help link to achieve the same:

Thanks
Princy.
