1. Overview

This article shows different ways to hide a column in a table visualization.

Note
This does not hide the column from the metric set, and can still result in the data being made available to viewers and when exporting.

2. Using properties

You can show or hide a table column by using its Visible property (excluding row header columns).

You can hide or show a table column using a script as follows:

// To show 1st column 
table1.control.columns[0].isVisible = true;

 To remove a table column entirely:

table1.removeColumnByIndex(0);
