<!-- ItemsSource is a DataTable that contains a list of customers.  The DataTable columns are  
     Title, FirstName, MiddleName, LastName, Suffix, CompanyName, EmailAddress, and Phone.-->
<DataGrid Grid.Row="1" Name="DG1" ItemsSource="{Binding}" AutoGeneratingColumn="DG1_AutoGeneratingColumn"  />
Private Sub DG1_AutoGeneratingColumn(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DataGridAutoGeneratingColumnEventArgs)
    'Set properties on the columns during auto-generation
    Select Case e.Column.Header.ToString()
        Case "LastName"
            e.Column.CanUserSort = False
            e.Column.Visibility = Visibility.Visible
            Exit Select
        Case "FirstName"
            e.Column.Visibility = Visibility.Visible
            Exit Select
        Case "CompanyName"
            e.Column.Visibility = Visibility.Visible
            Exit Select
        Case "EmailAddress"
            e.Column.Visibility = Visibility.Visible
            Exit Select
        Case Else
            e.Column.Visibility = Visibility.Collapsed
            Exit Select

    End Select
End Sub

Private Sub CheckBox_Checked(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)
    'Make each column in the collection visible
    For Each col As DataGridColumn In DG1.Columns
        col.Visibility = Visibility.Visible
    Next
End Sub

Private Sub CheckBox_Unchecked(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)
    'Get the columns collection
    Dim columns As ObservableCollection(Of DataGridColumn) = DG1.Columns

    'set the visibility for each column so only 4 columns are visible
    For Each col As DataGridColumn In columns
        Select Case col.Header.ToString()
            Case "LastName"
                col.Visibility = Visibility.Visible
                Exit Select
            Case "FirstName"
                col.Visibility = Visibility.Visible
                Exit Select
            Case "CompanyName"
                col.Visibility = Visibility.Visible
                Exit Select
            Case "EmailAddress"
                col.Visibility = Visibility.Visible
                Exit Select
            Case Else
