Hide column not working in Dynamic Data

I found this link:

and have added all the sample code to my project. But, if you searched for "DetailsView1", you'd see the code I do not know how to replace.

Could anyone please tell me what variable to use?

Attached is the ASP.NET script for the page.

<%@ Page Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Site.master" CodeBehind="Details.aspx.cs" Inherits="RDDBWebAdmin.Details" %>

<asp:Content ID="headContent" ContentPlaceHolderID="head" Runat="Server">

<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder1" Runat="Server">
    <asp:DynamicDataManager ID="DynamicDataManager1" runat="server" AutoLoadForeignKeys="true">
            <asp:DataControlReference ControlID="FormView1" />

    <h2 class="DDSubHeader">Entry from table <%= table.DisplayName %></h2>

    <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server">
            <asp:ValidationSummary ID="ValidationSummary1" runat="server" EnableClientScript="true"
                HeaderText="List of validation errors" CssClass="DDValidator" />
            <asp:DynamicValidator runat="server" ID="DetailsViewValidator" ControlToValidate="FormView1" Display="None" CssClass="DDValidator" />

            <asp:FormView runat="server" ID="FormView1" DataSourceID="DetailsDataSource" OnItemDeleted="FormView1_ItemDeleted" RenderOuterTable="false">
                    <table id="detailsTable" class="DDDetailsTable" cellpadding="6">
                        <asp:DynamicEntity runat="server" />
                        <tr class="td">
                            <td colspan="2">
                                <asp:DynamicHyperLink runat="server" Action="Edit" Text="Edit" />
                                <asp:LinkButton runat="server" CommandName="Delete" Text="Delete"
                                    OnClientClick='return confirm("Are you sure you want to delete this item?");' />
                    <div class="DDNoItem">No such item.</div>

            <asp:EntityDataSource ID="DetailsDataSource" runat="server" EnableDelete="true" />

            <asp:QueryExtender TargetControlID="DetailsDataSource" ID="DetailsQueryExtender" runat="server">
                <asp:DynamicRouteExpression />

            <br />

            <div class="DDBottomHyperLink">
                <asp:DynamicHyperLink ID="ListHyperLink" runat="server" Action="List">Show all items</asp:DynamicHyperLink>

Maybe you need to use DetailView instead of FormView for it to work?

Change your FormView for DetailView and the ID for DetailView1 and see.

use FormView1

> use FormView1

This failed since 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.FormView' does not contain a definition for 'RowsGenerator' and no extension method 'RowsGenerator' accepting a first argument of type 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.FormView' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

I don't know what you mean. Could you please explain this more clearly?
