MSDN has a few examples in it and for once a clear explanation ie
' Declare a new DataGridTableStyle in the ' declarations area of your form. Dim ts As DataGridTableStyle = New DataGridTableStyle() Sub DeleteColumn() ' Set the DataGridTableStyle.MappingName property ' to the table in the data source to map to. ts.MappingName = DataGrid1.DataMember ' Add it to the datagrid's TableStyles collection DataGrid1.TableStyles.Add(ts) ' Delete the first column (index 0) DataGrid1.TableStyles(0).GridColumnStyles.RemoveAt(0) End Sub
either that or just clear the data fields in the column or delete the coumn and add it back afterwards.
