It appears that you can set the visible property of a ribbon bar category item but it seems to have no effect. It stays visible. I tried this. I tried it from the open event of the frame and I tried to post to a user event after the open. It stays visible. I could delete and insert but then I would have to recreate all of the pieces in the category. Surely I'm doing something wrong. Anyone have any ideas?

 

RibbonCategoryItem lr_Category
rbb_1.GetItemByTag ("CategoryOrderTest", ref lr_Category)
lr_Category.visible = false

Hi Mark,

Arthur is right.

You need to reset the object to the Ribbonbar control. You can refer to the code below:

 

RibbonCategoryItem lr_Category

rbb_1.GetItemByTag ("CategoryOrderTest", lr_Category)

lr_Category.visible = false

rbb_1.setcategory(lr_Category.itemhandle , lr_Category)

 

Following are the related documents for your references.

https://docs.appeon.com/pb2019r3/pbug/ch04s04.html#Accessing_the_ribbon_items_in_the_hierarchy 

The RibbonBar control is a container. The RibbonBar control, as well as the item controls it contains, have a hierarchical relationship. The item controls cannot exist independently and must be placed on top of the parent object; therefore, to get an item control, you need to search from the top level (RibbonBar control), or to search by tag. The control you get is a copy (not a reference), and after the copy is modified, it needs to be set back to the parent object, and then to the RibbonBar control, for the change to take effect.

Hi 

you have to set it as well.

RibbonCategoryItem lr_Category
rbb_1.GetItemByTag ("CategoryOrderTest", ref lr_Category)
lr_Category.visible = false

rbb_1.SetItem( lr_Category )
