Hi,

You can hide the Column by using a CssClass:

.HiddenColumn 'in style section of <head>
{
         display:none;
}


<Columns>
<asp:BoundField DataField="Action_Key"  HeaderText="Key" InsertVisible="False" >
               <HeaderStyle CssClass="HiddenColumn" />
               <ItemStyle CssClass="HiddenColumn" />
</asp:BoundFiled>
</Columns>

Just change the Asp:BoundField to whatever suits your needs....the important bit is the HeaderStyle and ItemStyle.

Then in you can access the value from code behind with no problem.

if you have the footer's show property set to true, you'll have to 'style' it as well.
Am I right M3mph15 ?
