    All --

    Please help.

    How can one hide a column on the List page only?

    Is there an attribute setting for that?

    I want to show the column on the Detail page and on the Insert page and on the Edit page-- but, I do not want to show it on the List page.

    I would rather not have to create a custom template-- I would rather want to decorate the partial class Metadata, etc.

    Can you help?

    Please advise.

    Thank you.

    Hi Mark you could use a column generator as used in DD Futures and in my tutorials on permissions:

    // add ColumnNameFieldsManager to set column names
    GridView1.ColumnsGenerator = new ColumnNameFieldsManager(table);

    And here's the Column Generator class

    public class ColumnNameFieldsManager : IAutoFieldGenerator
    	protected MetaTable _table;
    	public ColumnNameFieldsManager(MetaTable table)
    		_table = table;
    	public ICollection GenerateFields(Control control)
    		List<DYNAMICFIELD> oFields = new List<DYNAMICFIELD>();
    		foreach (MetaColumn column in _table.Columns)
    			// carry on the loop at the next column  
    			// if scaffold table is set to false or DenyRead
    			if (!column.Scaffold)
    			DynamicField f = new DynamicField();
    			f.DataField = column.Name;
    			// do your column name look up here
    			f.HeaderText = "***" + column.Name + "***";
    		return oFields;

    You could then skip the columns you don't want based on your own attributes 

    Hope this helps [:D]
