Hi,

You cannot hide them, you have to remove and add them

tabControl1.TabPages.RemoveByKey("tabPage1");

pls refer to

Hi Rgonzo,

Thank you for your response.

I know this but i don't want to remove it, i just want to show/hide them based on the conditions through coding.

You have to remove it like it was shown before. You can always add it back

Perhaps just set the TabControl state to Enabled = false.

Then your code can control which tab page is displayed.

DansDadUK, you have never used the TabControl right? Otherwise, you would know that there is no Enabled property on tab pages!

As stated in the above posts the only way to show and hide a TabPage is to actually add or remove it from the TabPage collection.

... you have never used the TabControl right? ...
Eric - you are quite correct - I've never used TabControl within a Windows Forms project.

I was a programmer and/or debugger of other people's code (in PLAN, COBOL, SCL, S3, C, C++, JScript, etc) over a period of nearly 40 years before I retired nearly 6 years ago.
Since then I've taught myself (the rudiments of) C#, using Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) within Visual Studio, and in that environment, the TabControl control has a Focusable toggle, which (if set to false) means that the user cannot directly select individual tabs within the control, but they can be selected programmatically).

I (perhaps naively) assumed that Windows Forms (being the older technology) would have something similar, and wrote my earlier comment without properly checking the documentation.

Sorry!

What am I not understanding about enabling/disabling TabControl within a Windows Forms project?:
Sample TabControl within C
Or are we talking at cross purposes?
Please explain.

... or perhaps the clue is in your comment:

>> ... there is no Enabled property on tab pages ...

I'm referring to the property on the TabControl, not on individual TabPage items.
Perhaps (I haven't checked 'cos I don't use Windows Forms) disabling the TabControl item disables the tab pages as well, so even if one of them is programmatically selected, the user can't interact with it?
Yes - the tab pages are also disabled if the tabcontrol is disabled.

This setting disable the complete tabcontrol (all the pages and their contents). It is not what the asker wants!
