Hi.

I'm Jorge Muria from Video Stream Networks. I've just updated a Silverlight application from v. 2010_3_1110_DEV version to Q2 2012 SP1 and somethink broke. We set the column Width to 0 in order to store hidden data within the row. Now if I set it to 0, there is a minimum size displayed (around  20 pixels) and I cannot do it smaller.. 

I know I can use IsVisible property but I'll have to change the application behaviour because the hidden columns are not directly accesible and I'll have to access the DataContext. I prefer to void to make that kind of changes now. 

Is there anything that I can do to set the width to 0 or hide the column while accessing it like with the other columns?

Thanks in advance. 
Jorge Muria.

Hello Jorge,

As you have upgraded from quite an old version, I would like to ask you to share more details on what your exact scenario is. That way I could suggest you a solution that benefits from the latest improvements we have introduced.

Why do you need to access the DataContext for the hidden column? What is your final goal?

All the best,
