Hi guys,

I'm trying to read a value on client side, from a row that was also hidden on client side with JavaScript (the elements are still in the HTML, but with style="display: none;" attribute). In this case the


function call won't read the value, even though it could read it when the column was visible.
How can I get the value of this hidden column?

And I just noticed I wrote 'row' instead of 'column' in the subject. :( Sorry.

Hi Peter,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

We regret to let you know that it is not possible to get the hidden column values through javascript. But this can be achieved using server side where the columns and visible columns are maintained as a collection.

Please refer a workaround sample from below which illustrates retrieving currently selected column and visible column values.

Please let me know if you have any concerns.

thanks for your post, but you talk about hiding on the column on the server side, and I was about hiding it on client side with JavaScript (with the HideColumn function), the HTML elements will be still there, just hidden (style="display: none;").

Upon further investigation I realized that reading elements from the grid while one of the columns is hidden doesn't work right. I'll report it with Direct-trac.
