DataGridViewColumn.Visible Property

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the column is visible.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

[LocalizableAttribute(true)] 
public override bool Visible { get; set; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_Visible ()

/** @property */
public void set_Visible (boolean value)

public override function get Visible () : boolean

public override function set Visible (value : boolean)

Property Value

true if the column is visible; otherwise, false.

Use this property to hide a column from view while keeping the column in the DataGridView. To completely remove a column, use the System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewColumnCollection.Remove method.

To hide a column that is automatically generated when binding to a data source, set this property in a DataBindingComplete event handler.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the DataGridViewBand.Visible property, which is nearly identical to the Visible property of the DataGridViewColumn class. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataGridViewBand class overview.

// Hide a band of cells.
private void Button6_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{

    DataGridViewBand band = dataGridView.Rows[3];
    band.Visible = false;
}
