    Pulling my hair out here!
    I have a datagrid with a number of bound columns (NOT template columns).
    When choosing to Edit, the textboxes appear, but the font is not the same as
    the original text (i.e., 8pt Tahoma).

    Anyone know how to change the Font size when the Edit box appears?
    I've tried setting up something with CSS and various changes in code, but I
    can't get anything to work.

    Perhaps I'm missing something simple?
    Appreciate any sample/example or suggestions>

    You should be able to set the Style for your <EditItemStyle> which could
    be different than your <ItemStyle>

    You can manipulate the edit text box in the OnItemCreated event handler, like so:

    if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.EditItem)
    TextBox textBox = e.Item.Cells[0].Controls[0] as TextBox;
    //change the style as you see fit

    In the example above, textBox would reference the box in the first column/cell of the row being edited.
