    So how does everyone hide the primary key in a gridview with a datasource to
    a table, let's say. If you don't display it, then you can't update the
    records. Users don't want to see this field, particularly if it's a guid.
    Example:

    Select ID, ProductName from tblProducts is the datasource

    The gridview has 2 bound fields, the id and the productname. If you set the
    id to invisible, it's not rendered and it is lost when you attempt to update
    that record.
