In this blog I will explain how we can hide and show columns of a grid using Client Side API.
Suppose, we don’t want to Show Company associated with Opportunity to the users on the Opportunities tab in My CRM. We can achieve the same by using “hideColumn” method of Client Side API. To do the same follow below steps.
1. Log in to CRM.
2. Go to Administration || Customization || Opportunity || Lists.
3. Click on hyperlink of “Opportunity List”.
4. In the Custom Content write below code and save.
function Page_OnLoad()
Below is the screenshot for the same.


In the “hideColumn” method, we have to provide the column name which we want to hide.
We can also show the column in grid using “showColumn” method. Below is the syntax for the same.
