I need to bind to a rows click event on a table, but not dynamically as I want to hide to columns data, but completely stuck :-S

What I have is a simple table:-
<table id="example">
	<tr>
		<th>ID</th>
		<th>First</th>
		<th>Surname</th>
		<th>Number</th>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td>1</td>
		<td>Nettie</td>
		<td>Saltsman</td>
		<td>32452345</td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td>2</td>
		<td>Wilson</td>
		<td>Paredes</td>
		<td>23452</td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td>3</td>
		<td>Twyla</td>
		<td>Merryman</td>
		<td>1435345</td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td>4</td>
		<td>Eustolia</td>
		<td>Fleischmann</td>
		<td>4567854678</td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td>5</td>
		<td>Dustin</td>
		<td>Craig</td>
		<td>42564256</td>
	</tr>
</table>

Open in new window


Which I can easily add a bind on to get the first column data:-
    $("#example tr").click( function( e ) {
        var a = $(this).closest('tr').find('td:first').text();
        alert($(this).closest('tr').find('td:first').text());
    });

Open in new window


Now my problem come in, I want to hide the first column of data, but if I run my code now I get the first column of data, not was the first column of data. Looking at using dataTables jQuery plugin the html doesnt exitst for the first column anymore, so I need to bind the data instead of dynamically getting the data when the row is clicked.

Any ideas??????? Please
