Is there a trick to use the Hide() / Show() Methods?

I have a Tab Control on my form that contains several TabPages. I wish to be able to view/hide them at will using the Hide() and Show() Methods but I'm not having any luck with it. Initially when my form is shown, the tabs default are that you cannot see them. I was using the code below to do this and it did what it was supposed to do.

            tabTests.TabPages.Remove(tabCreepTest)
            tabTests.TabPages.Remove(tabShuntTest)
            tabTests.TabPages.Remove(tabElectricalTest)
            tabTests.TabPages.Remove(tabRecoveryTest)
            tabTests.TabPages.Remove(tabRepeatabilityTest)
            tabTests.TabPages.Remove(tabReproducabilityTest)

However, when I saw the Hide() and Show() Methods, it seemed much easier to control the TabPages visibility.

once a tabpage has been removed, you can re-add it later (show) using:

tabTests.TabPages.Add(tabCreepTest)
