I know this is a "dumb" question, but when I use AutocompleteFor I cannot find a way to control the width of the textbox. None of the built in parameters seems to do it.

there are lots of ways doing this with css,

you could also write inline css style like this:

        <%=Html.AutocompleteFor(o => o.Person, htmlAttributes:new{style="color:purple; width:300px;"}) %>

Thank you.

I know css, it was the htmlAttributes:new that I could not figure.

Anyway that is the correct answer.
