Reading hidden columns values

I have GridGroupingControl1 in my ASP page. It has a few hidden columns. I need to access those hidden columns value for the selected row while I click on context menu attached to that row.
I tried following but it doesn't have hidden columns. It contains only visible column data. 
rec = GridGroupingControl1.Table.CurrentRecord;
fyi, I made column hidden as below


Pl advise
