resizing datagrids on mobile

I have never used datagrid. When I first got LC I created one and saw all
the created objects and ran away crying like a 2 year old after the candy
was taken away. That being said. Could someone send me a stack with working
datagrid. I would like to test my resizing library with a real-world
datagrid LC app.

We have always had that. Simply include in your array the data you want
hidden, but don't include the column in the column definition. access the
hidden data from the array. 

put "This is a test" into myArray[1]["column 1"] put "I'm hidden" into
myArray[1]["column 2"] set the dgprop["columns"] of group "myDatagrid" to
"column 1"
set the dgData of group "myDatagrid" to myArray

field object works great, better now in v5.5 than ever before since we now
have zero-width columns so we can include things like record IDs without
having to show those to the user.
