Width in GridView


I am trying to see if I could set the fixed width in GridView. This is what I use based on searching on Internet.

                    <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Work Phone" SortExpression="WorkPhone" HeaderStyle-Width="20%">
                            <asp:Label ID="WorkPhone" runat="server" Text='<%#Eval("WorkPhone")%>' />

Open in new window

But it does not work. Am I missing something? thanks

percentage is not measurable as fixed size.

to make it a fixed width for your header, you got to put a fixed size like this:

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Work Phone" SortExpression="WorkPhone" HeaderStyle-Width="200px">
