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" />
    <DynamicSelectedStyle BackColor="#1C5E55" />
    <DynamicMenuItemStyle HorizontalPadding="5px" VerticalPadding="2px" />
    <StaticHoverStyle BackColor="#666666" ForeColor="White" />
    <Items>
        <asp:MenuItem Text="Account" Value="Account">
            <asp:MenuItem NavigateUrl="~/profile.aspx" Text="Profile" Value="Profile"></asp:MenuItem>
            <asp:MenuItem NavigateUrl="~/password.aspx" Text="Change Password" Value="Change Password"></asp:MenuItem>
            <asp:MenuItem Text="Manage Accts" Value="ManageAccts">
                <asp:MenuItem Text="Select Acct" Value="SelectAcct" NavigateUrl="~/accounts.aspx"></asp:MenuItem>
                <asp:MenuItem Text="Acct Status" Value="AcctStatus" NavigateUrl="~/accountstatus.aspx"></asp:MenuItem>
            </asp:MenuItem>
        </asp:MenuItem>
    </Items>
</asp:Menu>



<asp:LoginStatus ID="LoginStatus1" runat="server" 
onloggingout="LoginStatus2_LoggingOut" Font-Size="Smaller" Visible="true" />



protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) //, MenuEventArgs ee
    {
        System.Web.Profile.ProfileBase p = HttpContext.Current.Profile;
        MembershipUser currentMember = Membership.GetUser(p.UserName.ToString());

        if (Request.IsAuthenticated)
        {
            if (Roles.IsUserInRole(currentMember.UserName, "Customer"))
            {
                
                Menu1.Items[0].ChildItems.RemoveAt(2); //hide the Account/Manage Accts menu item


                ////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

    }



protected void LoginStatus2_LoggingOut(object sender, LoginCancelEventArgs e)
    {
        System.Web.Profile.ProfileBase p = HttpContext.Current.Profile;
        MembershipUser currentMember = Membership.GetUser(p.UserName.ToString());

        if (Roles.IsUserInRole(currentMember.UserName, "Customer"))
        {
            Profile.SelectedCustomerId = "";
            Profile.SelectedCompany = "";
            Profile.Save();
        }
        //destroy session
        Session.RemoveAll();
        Session.Abandon();

        //destroy page history - stop user from clicking back button and reposting same data
        DestroyPageHistory();
    }


    protected void DestroyPageHistory()
    {
        //destroy page history - stop user from clicking back button and reposting same data
        Response.Expires = 0;
        Response.ExpiresAbsolute = DateTime.Now;
        Response.CacheControl = "no-cache";
    }

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