I have a gridview that I bind with code. How can I determine if a gridview column has no data? I want to hide that column if it doesn't have data.

you can simply iterate throw all rows in the datagrid and check if the cell in requested column is empty.
something like:
            DataGridView dgv = new DataGridView();
            int count = dgv.Rows.Cast<DataGridViewRow>().Where(n => n.Cells[columnName].Value != null && !string.IsNullOrEmpty(n.Cells[columnName].Value.ToString())).Count();
            if (count == 0)
            {
                //column is empty and has no data
            }

you can also do like this:

protected void MyGrid_RowCreated(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
{
 if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.Header)
 {
  //check here for black or null data. If found...then execute...
  e.Row.Cells[index].Visible = false;
 }
 if(e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
 {
  //check here for black or null data. If found...then execute...
  e.Row.Cells[index].Visible = false;
 }
}
