I have a grid which needs some adjustments to a display column.
I respond to the ItemDataBound event and retrieve an ID from the row which is my key to the other processing logic.
I do not want this column to be displayed to the user.
I set Visible = False and then the value is not returned, just null or an empty string (not sure / don't care)
Is there a way to get the value when the column is hidden?
I have tried to set the column width down to 1px but the ID numbers force it wider.
Tech notes: using latest release of AJAX UI with VS 2015 and C#.
