DataGrid: Sort columns or hide columns

I'd like to produce a datagrid with two different modes - one mode would be a conventional sort...clicking the column head toggles between ascending/descending sort.

In the other mode clicking the column header of a given column will cause that column to shrink to 10 pixels wide with all cells containing blanks. Click that column again and it toggles to it's regular width and content.

I'm figuring the best way to indicate mode is a checkbox.

It'd be great if shifting between modes didn't require a trip back to the server but first things first.

thankx

Try to adjust the properties of your datagrid column something like this:

        Dim l As Button
        If e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.Item Or e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.AlternatingItem Then
            l = CType(e.Item.Cells(12).FindControl("cmdDel"), Button)                            
            l.Attributes.Width = "10"
        End If

Confirm the syntax of L.Attributes.Width.  This references a Column Template in a DataGrid that happens to be a button.  You would reference your column template this is of another type, (not a button).

Hope this helps.

I know you are not trying to delete something however see if you can just change the attribute of  a column to do what you want.
 Perhaps you could also do a search at builder.com to find a tutoral.  Nice clear turtorals.
