disabling and enabling tabs in a tag control.

I have four tabs see image attached.
1. On load of the form I disable three of them using:
            this.MainTabControl.TabPages.RemoveAt(1); // Update invisible until a row is selected or create button is clicked.
            this.MainTabControl.TabPages.RemoveAt(1); // Error/Warning invisible until Load is completed.
            this.MainTabControl.TabPages.RemoveAt(1); // Compare invisible until compare button is pressed.

So now I am left with one tab which is the SelectPriceListTab

Now if the user presses the create button then I want to enable the second tab button

this.MainTabControl.TabPages.Add(CreateUpdatePriceListTab);
this.MainTabControl.SelectTab(1);

So if I am in the selecttab disable all three tabs otherwise if I click on the datagrid row or create button on the selecttab then
show createupdatetab.
see two images.

OK, Here is how you can remove and re-add the tab pages....  I have created a test page with 2 buttons and can when you click on button1 it removes tab 2 3 and 4 and then button 2 adds them back.  Whe you re-add, everything that was orginially there is still there.

Try this:

Shawn

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            this.tabControl1.TabPages.Remove(tabPage2);
            this.tabControl1.TabPages.Remove(tabPage3);
            this.tabControl1.TabPages.Remove(tabPage4);
        }
 
        private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            this.tabControl1.TabPages.Add(tabPage2);
            this.tabControl1.TabPages.Add(tabPage3);
            this.tabControl1.TabPages.Add(tabPage4);
        }

Open in new window

 private void MainTabControl_Selected(object sender, TabControlEventArgs e)
        {
          if MainTabControl. is  SelectPriceListTab /// =====> what should be the syntax here.
                 HideTabs();
        }

private void HideTabs()
        {
            this.MainTabControl.TabPages.Remove(CreateUpdatePriceListTab); // Update invisible until a row is selected or create button is clicked.
            this.MainTabControl.TabPages.Remove(ErrorWarningsTab);       // Error/Warning invisible until Load is completed.
            this.MainTabControl.TabPages.Remove(CompareResultsTab);      // Compare invisible until compare button is pressed.
        }
