I want to delete a columns in a DBgrid with Delphi2 in run-time mode.
Add a columns is possible : DBgrid.columns.add
This command add a columns at the end of the dbgrid.
How to delete this last columns ?
The command DBgrid.columns.del or erase don't work.
Thanks.

Lgc,

As opposed to actually deleting the column, how about just setting it's visible property to FALSE, thereby hiding it but keeping it "available" for program usage or possible re-display later?

DBGrid.Columns[2].Visible := False;

Good luck with your project!

Sorry, but DBgrid.columns.visible := false and RebuildColumns don't work with persistant field in my program.
Thanks Pegasus and Zifnab.

1. Place a DBGrid on a form.
2. Place a button on a form.
3. Connect the DBGrid to a table that has more then 2 fields.
4. Set Table's Active to true.
5. Write the following code, that deletes the second column:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  DBGrid1.Columns.RebuildColumns;
  DBGrid1.Columns.Items[1].Destroy;
end;

Thanks RONIT you have the response for my problem.
