Hiding Gridview Columns

I'm attempting to hide certain gridview boundfield and templatefield columns programmatically. The following code that references the column index works to hide a column.

GridView1.Columns(20).Visible = False

Is it possible to reference the gridview column by name (maybe the HeaderText) rather than the index (20)?

Thank you

No, only by iterating through the columns comparing the names.

Unfortunately you could not do this direct because the GridView.Columns collections does not allow it.
You can write your own method about this

    private sub HideColumnByName(name as string )

        For each column as DataControlField in GridView1.Columns
       
            if column.HeaderText = name then
                column.Visible = false
            end if
        Next
    End sub
