Removing columns with Dynamic Data

I see how to create a partial class for each table where I want to remove certain columns from being displayed, but I hope to find a more automatic way to do this. I would like to find a way into the Dynamic Data where it is creating the actual table, and insert logic that will remove one or more specific columns from being added.

I would much perfer this level of abstraction so Ican add new tables onthe fly and reconfigure a table of columns names, and see it worked fine, not C# coding needed.

Attached is the markup from the .aspx page generated for these Dynamic Data pages. But I am at a loss to find where the rows are being created.
<asp:FormView runat="server" ID="FormView1" DataSourceID="DetailsDataSource" OnItemDeleted="FormView1_ItemDeleted" RenderOuterTable="false">
                <ItemTemplate>
                    <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?");' />
                            </td>
                        </tr>
                    </table>
                </ItemTemplate>
                <EmptyDataTemplate>
                    <div class="DDNoItem">No such item.</div>
                </EmptyDataTemplate>
            </asp:FormView>

rkworlds,
I don't see what's changed in the code you attached. Is there a difference?
