How to make gridview and cells bigger?

Tags: c#,css,,gridview

Problem :

I want to make my ASP gridview wider and the cells bigger. I've tried some sh*t with width and cellspacing/cellpadding, none of it worked.

How it looks :

How it pretty much should look like :

The gridview :

<div class="content">
<%-- GridView --%>
<asp:UpdatePanel ID="pnlGVList" runat="server">
        <asp:GridView runat="server" ID="gridList" CellPadding="40" ForeColor="#333333" GridLines="None" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataSourceID="DSList" AllowPaging="True" PageSize="50">

            <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="White" ForeColor="#284775"></AlternatingRowStyle>

                <asp:BoundField DataField="positie" HeaderText="Positie" SortExpression="positie"></asp:BoundField>
                <asp:HyperLinkField DataNavigateUrlFields="artiestid" DataNavigateUrlFormatString="Artists.aspx?id={0}" DataTextField="naam" HeaderText="Naam" />
                <asp:HyperLinkField DataNavigateUrlFields="songid" DataNavigateUrlFormatString="Song.aspx?id={0}" DataTextField="titel" HeaderText="Titel" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="jaar" HeaderText="Jaar" SortExpression="jaar"></asp:BoundField>

            <EditRowStyle BackColor="#999999"></EditRowStyle>
            <FooterStyle BackColor="#5D7B9D" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White"></FooterStyle>
            <HeaderStyle BackColor="#5D7B9D" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White"></HeaderStyle>
            <PagerStyle HorizontalAlign="Center" BackColor="#284775" ForeColor="White"></PagerStyle>
            <RowStyle BackColor="#F7F6F3" ForeColor="#333333"></RowStyle>
            <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#E2DED6" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#333333"></SelectedRowStyle>
            <SortedAscendingCellStyle BackColor="#E9E7E2"></SortedAscendingCellStyle>
            <SortedAscendingHeaderStyle BackColor="#506C8C"></SortedAscendingHeaderStyle>
            <SortedDescendingCellStyle BackColor="#FFFDF8"></SortedDescendingCellStyle>
            <SortedDescendingHeaderStyle BackColor="#6F8DAE"></SortedDescendingHeaderStyle>

<asp:SqlDataSource runat="server" ID="DSList" ConnectionString='<%$ ConnectionStrings:TOP2000_IAO4A_GROEP2ConnectionString %>' SelectCommand="sp_top2000_year" SelectCommandType="StoredProcedure">
      <asp:ControlParameter ControlID="ddlJaar" PropertyName="SelectedValue" DefaultValue="" Name="YEAR" Type="Int32"></asp:ControlParameter>

Some css:

#gridList {

.content {
margin-top: 30px;
margin-left: 300px;
margin-right: 40px;
height: 100vh;
background-color: white;
box-shadow: 0px 0px 1px 1px black;

Solution :

You are applying margin and paddings with content css class to the div, not to the Row.

You could create a css class for your RowStyle and apply something like this:

<RowStyle CssClass="myRowStyleClass"></RowStyle>

And remove the CellPadding from the GridView.
