    THis might be an odd question.  I have a grid that I want to hide the Active column on the grid.  The grid has editmode of InPlace.  When the user either adds new or edits the record I want to display more columns.  Is this possible?

    Hi Eric,

    You can try out the following approach to hide certain columns, when the grid is in Insert mode but display them in Edit mode.
     protected void RadGrid1_ItemCommand(object source, GridCommandEventArgs e) 
            foreach (GridColumn col in RadGrid1.Columns) 
                if (col.ColumnType == "GridBoundColumn" && col.UniqueName == "ColumnUniqueName"
                    if (e.CommandName == RadGrid.EditCommandName) 
                        (col as GridBoundColumn).ReadOnly = false
                        col.Visible = true
                        (col as GridBoundColumn).ReadOnly = true
                        col.Visible = false
