I added a multiline textbox to gridview in my website project in c# I will retrieve text from database to my textbox.

I set the width and height of texbox to 100% and put it in a div. But when I view the site in browser doesnt fill the div and it is resizeable. I also set the height and width of div to 100% in my .css file.

How can I fill the div with textbox and lock the size of textbox?

I want to stop the user from increasing the height or width of textbox.

The basic problem seems to be clear, but some detail would be needed. Could you write a simple sample with just one text box to reproduce the problem. As it is only related to HTML (and probably CSS), not ASP.NET, it would be good if this is pure HTML code.

In C#:
<asp:textbox id="txtComments" runat="server" bordercolor="Gray" xmlns:asp="#unknown">
           BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px" CausesValidation="true" Wrap="true"

in aspx.cs
public int MaxLength
       get { return txtComments.MaxLength; }
       set { txtComments.MaxLength = value; }
   public void wordCount()
       txtCount.Text = txtComments.MaxLength.ToString();
       txtComments.Attributes.Add("onKeyUp", "javascript:document.getElementById('" + txtCount.ClientID + "').setAttribute('value', (" + txtComments.MaxLength + " - parseInt(document.getElementById('" + txtComments.ClientID + "').getAttribute('value').length)));");
