Hide a Column Using the API

A column is considered hidden when its visible option is false. In Angular, Vue, and React, you can bind this option to a component or state property and change that property. In jQuery, you can change this option using the columnOption(id, optionName, optionValue) method. For example, the following code hides an "Email" column:

jQuery
JavaScript
$("#dataGridContainer").dxDataGrid("columnOption", "Email", "visible", false);
Angular
app.component.html
app.component.ts
app.module.ts
<dx-data-grid ... >
    <dxi-column
        dataField="Email"
        [(visible)]="isEmailVisible"
    ></dxi-column>
</dx-data-grid>
import { Component } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-root',
    templateUrl: './app.component.html',
    styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
})
export class AppComponent {
    isEmailVisible: boolean = true;
    hideEmails() {
        this.isEmailVisible = false;
    }
}
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
