A really cool nugget- How to show and hide tabs dynamically in the SalesLogix Web Client

In the SalesLogix LAN client and web client one of the most requested thing I am asked is how do you hide tabs at run time.

In the web client this is actually really easy.  You can wire this up on a load action of a quick form like so:

Sage.Entity.Interfaces.ISalesOrder salesorder = this.BindingSource.Current as Sage.Entity.Interfaces.ISalesOrder;

Sage.Platform.WebPortal.Workspaces.Tab.TabWorkspace tabs = this.ParentWorkItem.Workspaces["TabControl"] as Sage.Platform.WebPortal.Workspaces.Tab.TabWorkspace;
tabs.Hide("SalesOrderChangeOrders", (salesOrder.OrderType=="Change Order"));

The key here is once you get a reference to the tabs workspace, you can call the Hide method which then accepts two parameters, the Smart Part ID to show or hide, and a Boolean parameter.  The second Boolean parameter is set to True to hide and False to not hide. Note, that since this code runs after the tabs are actually loaded onto the page, the tab you are showing or hiding needs to be present as a loaded smart part.

I have tried to dynamically hide tabs at runtime using this code, but cannot get it to work.  IsHidden changes to true, but the tab remains visible and active.  Am I missing something? What do you mean by "present as a loaded smart part"?  I have tried it on a tab both when still in More Tabs as well as after moving.

The smart part needs to be loaded onto the page in the page's code file (On the Account page this would be the Account.aspx.cs).  The smart part name is case sensitive.
