Disabling Columns in GridView

Today I needed to find a way to disable certain columns in a GridView while keeping the Gridview in the same visible state it would be in no matter what authority the user had to the page. I put the following code in the databind section under an if statement that says that if the user is not authorized:

gvCM.Columns[3].Visible = false; // Hides the edit button

gvCM is the name of the GridView and [3] controls the column that I didn’t want to be visible, in this case the forth column which has the edit button.
