I have a GridCheckBoxColumn in my grid, but the problem is that it forces the height of the rows to 28px, instead of the normal 21px - this is with the Office2007 skin.

So, I tried to change the default 4px top and bottom padding of the skin, by specifying a special css class for the row item, bit it doesn't use my padding.

In the documentation it mentions that for this to work I have to specify skin="", which would not be good as then I lose the rest of the styling.

So it seems that the only way is to create a custom skin, and make it non-embedded, ie like the "old" way.
 
Isn't there a simpler way to override the padding in a row?

Thanks, Steve

Ok, I found the solution, which is to use "!important" in my css to override the skin:

So in my aspx:

<MasterTableView   
ItemStyle-CssClass="myGridItemStyle">   
 

then in the stylesheet:

.myGridItemStyle td  
{  
    padding-top: 0px !important;  
    padding-bottom: 0px !important;  
}  
 

And voila! This is cool, and means I can override the embedded skins without changing them.

Might it be a good idea to include this trick in the documentation?
