I'm trying to hide an asp.net menu item and i can do it but when i click a logout button it causes and error.

I have one option that does it perfect but throws an error when I click the log out button.

The other option shows the child item and disables its child items. I don't want the child item visible at all.




//usercontrol



<asp:Menu ID="Menu1" runat="server" BackColor="#E3EAEB" 

    DynamicHorizontalOffset="2" Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Size="0.8em" 

    ForeColor="#666666" Orientation="Horizontal" StaticSubMenuIndent="10px">

    <StaticSelectedStyle BackColor="#1C5E55" />

    <StaticMenuItemStyle HorizontalPadding="5px" VerticalPadding="2px" />

    <DynamicHoverStyle BackColor="#666666" ForeColor="White" />

    <DynamicMenuStyle BackColor="#E3EAEB" CssClass="adjustedZIndex" />

                ////disable childmenu items

                //foreach (MenuItem item in Menu1.Items)

                //{

                //    foreach (MenuItem childItem in item.ChildItems)

                //        if (childItem.Text == "Manage Accts") childItem.Enabled = false; //*** want to hide this option

                //    }

                //}





//other stuff here as well



    }

            Profile.Save();

        }

        //destroy session

        Session.RemoveAll();

        Session.Abandon();

there is not visible property on a menuitem, you will have to remove the item from the menu and add later if needed
