I am using SQL Server 2012 with BIDS 2012 to create a drill down report.  The report works great but I don't want columns to be visible until the user drills down to display associated tables.  

I can  set the hidden property to true in the Properties bar for the column but have not been able to find a way to have it toggle when the user drill down.

Unfortunately this functionality is not built in: there's no way to capture the +/- toggle click of a drilldown.

So if you really need this you'll need some inventivity.  Don't use the built-in drilldown but implement it yourself using a couple of images and a report parameter that indicates the state: visible or hidden.  This also implicates that you can't work record-by-record, it's an all or nothing thing.  You can then use that same parameter to show/hide the additional columns.

Another option could be a nested table that represents the part that you drilldown to.  You can use a different layout in that nested table which gives you more freedom on what to show.
