Hi, I'm using VS2012, C# and asp.net.
I have a collection,  List<UserPrincipal>, that I use as a datasource and binded to the gridview, by code.  I only want to show 6 columns of data and allow users to edit only 5 of those columns.  How can I do that?  Is gridview the best control to use for this?  Users should be able to update the userPricipal object in edit.  How to do that too?

Thank you.
