I am using the DetailTemplateItemDataCell to put detailed information in per grid item.
However it is not used in all cases. When we want just the row itself I would like to be able to hide the detail template item but have not found this trivial.
I have tried .visible = false which doesn't render the detail cell but the row is still rendered and takes up the same amount of space.
I have also tried using DetailTemplateItemDataCell.parent.visible but this doesn't work either as it doesn't map to the row element.
Using css to set display none doesn't help either.
I am thinking that I am going to have to write some jquery to select the detail item data cells that I want to hide (based upon their content) then hide their parents. I was however hoping that there was an easier way to set this on the server side.
