i don't know about TAdvStringGrid,
but do you mean cell or column
(a cell cannot be hidden,
but you could clear the content)

if you mean column, then move all columns right of the column you will hide one step to left like

function hideAColumn(ColIndex : Integer) : TStringList;
  result := gridname.cols[i]; //return the content of the col, for later restore, if needed
  for i := colindex+1 to gridname.colcount-1 do
  gridname.colcount := gridname.colcount - 1;
