[Tex/LaTex] Increase row height of tabularx


I'm using the tabularx package from within memoir for creating a table. I'm trying to set the row height and found for tabular the command


However, with my tabularx table it doesn't seem to work and I can't find any way to do it (except maybe by manually setting each newline to a certain height)

Is there a better way to set the row height of all rows within a tabularx?

The dimen register \extrarowheight is provided by package array, which is automatically loaded by package tabularx. Thus \extrarowheight works as expected in the following example:




A different method is the redefinition of the factor \arraystretch. It is applied to the automatic struts, inserted in the tabular, see the question "Column padding in tables", found by Werner.
