Ok, I used your generic name for editColumn and "Edit" but that column is a buttoncolumn with a updatetext, canceltext, and edittext.  The delete column has a commandname and text.  I used "edit" and "delete" and it didn't work.

editColumn/deleteColumn is the column index number

for example
----------------------------------------------------------------
edit  |  delete  |    ID    |     Name    |        Type          |
----------------------------------------------------------------

the editColumn = 0
and deleteColumn = 1

so the code would be

GridView1.Columns[0].Visible = false;
GridView1.Columns[1].Visible = false;  
0
