Gridview Hide Delete on Certain Records but show empty column

I have the following and it works, but it removes the column when there is no Delete link.  I would like the column to show, but be empty when there is no delete link.


What the gridview is doing
 Protected Sub txtAddendum_RowDataBound(sender As Object, e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles txtAddendum.RowDataBound
        If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
            Dim drv As DataRowView = TryCast(e.Row.DataItem, DataRowView)
            If drv("OrdersAddendum").ToString().Equals("0") Then
                e.Row.Cells(0).Visible = False
            Else
                e.Row.Cells(0).Visible = True
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

Change this

 e.Row.Cells(0).Visible = False

to either

 e.Row.Cells(0).Style("display")="none"

or

 e.Row.Cells(0).Value=""
0

instead of
e.Row.Cells(0).Visible = False

Open in new window

use:
            foreach (Control c in e.Row.Cells(0).Controls)
            {
                 c.Visible = False;
            }

Open in new window

which should keep the table structure but hide the controls inside the cell.

** this is c#. I don't know VB enough not to jack up some syntax. You should be able to figure out how it's working, though, and fix it accordingly ("Dim c As Control" instead of "Control c", etc.)

I use a TemplateField for setting visibility like:

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Delete" HeaderStyle-Width="30px" HeaderStyle>
                <ItemTemplate>
                    <asp:LinkButton ID="DeleteButton" runat="server" CommandName= "Delete"   Visible='<%#IsVisible(Eval("IsPending"))%>' />
                   </ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateField>

Open in new window

In Code-behind IsVisible method looks like this:

Public Function IsVisible(ispending As Object) As Boolean
	Return Not CBool(ispending)
        'You can use any logic here to determine whether to return true or false
End Function
