Hi,

I have got this simple Grid:
            <asp:GridView ID="ExcelGrid" runat="server"  RowStyle-Wrap="false" CellPadding="4" ForeColor="#333333" GridLines="None">
                <FooterStyle BackColor="#5D7B9D" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
                <RowStyle BackColor="#F7F6F3" ForeColor="#333333" Wrap="False" />
                <EditRowStyle BackColor="#999999" />
                <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#E2DED6" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#333333" />
                <PagerStyle BackColor="#284775" ForeColor="White" HorizontalAlign="Center" />
                <HeaderStyle BackColor="#5D7B9D" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
                <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="White" ForeColor="#284775" />
            </asp:GridView>

But when I display the page, it autosizes itself. I want to define width and height for this GridView. If data is more than they will have to scroll left or down to see it.

So how i can set width and height for this grid view.

Regards

I have tried this, but doesn't seem to work.

GridView still autosizes itself to full width and height (not to what I mentioned).

Any more advise or do you think Im doing anything wrong. I have developed my project by using TIME TRACKER starter kit (available from asp.net website)

Sounds like it might be a skinfile or a css stylesheet that overrides your settings (look under the App_Themes folder for .skin files)

Try to view the page without using themes (remove the Theme=".." from the <%@ Page directive)

Try this with div tag

<div style="height:200px; width:500px; overflow:scroll;"  >
 <asp:GridView ID="ExcelGrid" runat="server"  RowStyle-Wrap="false" CellPadding="4" ForeColor="#333333" GridLines="None">
                <FooterStyle BackColor="#5D7B9D" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
                <RowStyle BackColor="#F7F6F3" ForeColor="#333333" Wrap="False" />
                <EditRowStyle BackColor="#999999" />
                <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#E2DED6" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#333333" />
                <PagerStyle BackColor="#284775" ForeColor="White" HorizontalAlign="Center" />
                <HeaderStyle BackColor="#5D7B9D" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
                <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="White" ForeColor="#284775" />
            </asp:GridView>
