$col[“width”] = “20”;
$col[“search”] = true;
$col[“editable”] = true;
$cols[] = $col;

$col = array();
$col[“title”] = _HSEfname;
$col[“name”] = “hsetest_firstname”;
$col[“formoptions”] = array(“elmsuffix”=>'<font color=red> *</font>’);
$col[“width”] = “20”;
$col[“search”] = true;
$col[“editable”] = true;
$col[“editrules”] = array(“required”=>true);
$col[“sortable”] = true;

You can do it using callback (on_insert) function. You need not to include this hidden field on grid. For more details, refer: https://www.gridphp.com/docs/grid-events/

$e["on_insert"] = array("add_data", null, true);

function add_data($data)
$data["params"]["hsetest_uname"] = $data["params"]["hsetest_firstname"] . "." . $data["params"]["hsetest_lastname"];
