GridView Row Height

I have a gridview and a style defined below. The gridview is bound to a dataset dynamically. Although I have set .gridstyle in GridView, the grid row height is still changable, because some columns contains multpiple words and the worlds can be displayed one word a line. This gridview is only for displaying and without add/edit/delete functionalities.

How can I fix the height of each row? Where should I put .gridstyle to fix the cell height?

    <style type="text/css">
       
        .gridstyle { height: 20px; }

    </style>

<asp:GridView ID="GridView2" runat="server" BackColor="#FFFFFF" CssClass ="gridstyle"
                    ForeColor="#5078B3" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderColor="#5078B3" >                   
          <headerstyle backcolor="#BF88FE"  forecolor="#5078B3"/>
          <footerstyle backcolor="#BF88FE"  forecolor="#3A5FCD"/>                
          <PagerStyle HorizontalAlign="Center" />                    
           <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#F0F0F0" />
</asp:GridView>

You can try

<asp:GridView ID="GridView2" runat="server" BackColor="#FFFFFF" CssClass ="gridstyle"
                    ForeColor="#5078B3" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderColor="#5078B3" >     
           <RowStyle  Height="20px" Wrap="false" />              
          <headerstyle backcolor="#BF88FE"  forecolor="#5078B3"/>
          <footerstyle backcolor="#BF88FE"  forecolor="#3A5FCD"/>                
          <PagerStyle HorizontalAlign="Center" />                    
           <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#F0F0F0" />
</asp:GridView>

Use CssClass  to call css:
<asp:GridView ID="GridView2" runat="server" BackColor="#FFFFFF" CssClass ="gridstyle"
                    ForeColor="#5078B3" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderColor="#5078B3" >     
           <RowStyle  CssClass="gridstyle" />              
          <headerstyle backcolor="#BF88FE"  forecolor="#5078B3"/>
          <footerstyle backcolor="#BF88FE"  forecolor="#3A5FCD"/>                
          <PagerStyle HorizontalAlign="Center" />                    
           <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#F0F0F0" />
</asp:GridView>

My code works OK in my sample page. Is the style below defined on the HEAD section of your page?
<HEAD>
  <style type="text/css">
       
        .gridstyle { height: 20px; }

    </style>
</HEAD>
also, Is the gridstyle name unique?

Yes, it's in head section and it's unique. Most rows are fine, except rows having multiple words in a cell shows higher size, as the multiple words take two or three lines.
