    Storing a hidden key value for each row in a datagrid

    I have a datagrid which displays some information and it also has a Delete button column.

    My problem is I do not want to display the id (database key) associated with the record on the page, but I need this value to delete the record when the user clicks delete. Is there a way to store the key value somewhere so that when the user clicks delete I can delete it from the database. This key value is the only thing guarenteed to be unique, so I can't do a findbyvalue on a column with text in it.

    nevermind there is apparently a visible property for datagrid columns. I can just make the column hidden

    You can also set the Column Width of the column to 0. This will effectively hide that column.
