IgGrid with hidding feature select columns in client side in cicle


I have my iggrid in MVC3, I'm using version 2011.2, I wonder if it is possible to use the feature Hidding, I can hide all the columns, and make a loop to display only the columns that are needed.

I want to do client side, it will be possible to do this.

Thanks in advance.

    i think it's better to just define the columns you would like to show . Is there any reason you'd like to do the opposite?

    It's possible via the hiding API (yep you can use the hiding since it's a 11.2 feature)

    you can iterate through the columns and get their keys in the following way:

    var cols = $("#grid").igGrid("option", "columns");

    for (i = 0; i < cols.length; i++) {

        var key = cols[i].key;

       $("#grid").igGrid("hideColumn", key);


    Hope it helps. Thanks
