How to Hide tab Item


Recommended Posts

Does somone can help to figure out how to hide tab item?

I do not want to delete the tab item but to hide it. I enclose script to start with.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <GuiTab.au3>
Global $current
$Form1 = GUICreate("AForm1", 460, 260, 193, 115)
$Tab1 = GUICtrlCreateTab(48, 16, 289, 193)
$TabSheet1 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("TabSheet1")
$TabSheet2 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("TabSheet2")
$TabSheet3 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("TabSheet3")
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hide Active Tab Item", 344, 8, 107, 25, 0)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case  $Button1
            Local $activeTabItem
            $activeTabItem =_FindActiveTabIndex()
            ConsoleWrite("Active Index tab is= " & $activeTabItem & @CRLF)
            _GUICtrlTabDeleteItem ($Tab1, $activeTabItem)

func _FindActiveTabIndex()
    If ($current <> _GUICtrlTabGetCurFocus ($Tab1)) Then
        $current = _GUICtrlTabGetCurFocus ($Tab1)
        return $current

I don't know of an easy way to hide a tab item. I see you used Smoke_N's suggestion to delete the tab. It may be best to just delete and recreate the tab item that you need to hide. Maybe you could add the tab item creation into a function and then just delete the tab to hide and and then run the function to recreate it. You could store values from the deleted tab into variables and reassign them to the controls when you recreate.

It's kind of a cumbersome solution but it might get you going.

Please, I can not belive that Auto it can not have this feature :shocked:

Here is simmilar topic without solution:


Don't think has anything to do with AutoIt not having this feature.


Hide is not state list for tab controls.

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.
