I am creating a gridview at runtime but don't want all the columns to be shown, ie the key information for the row of data I am showing.  I know I can do this

gridview1.column.item(0).visible = false

but although the column is not shown it also does not have the data in the column either and since I need to know the key data for processing the selected item from the grid, the above does not work for me

Right this code in the GridView1_RowDataBound Event and hide the column. In Controls(6) the 6 is number of column to be Hide on runtime.

If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.Header Then
         e.Row.Controls(6).Visible = False
        End If
        If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
         e.Row.Controls(6).Visible = False
       End If

To hide a column at runt time you can hook up to the GridView’s RowDataBound event and set the Visible property of the cell you want to hide to false:   protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e) { e.Row.Cells[0].Visible = false; }...

As I said in the question, that approach dos not work.  I need the column to be hidden not invisible.  If it is invisible it is not available as data in the grid, ie I want the column to still have data bound to it but to be hidden to the viewer.
