RibbonContextTabCategory.ClientVisible Property

Gets or sets a value that specifies the context tab category‘s initial visibility state on the client side.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.v23.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Web


public bool ClientVisible { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean false

true to make a category initially displayed on the client; false to render the category, but make it initially hidden on the client side.


Use the ClientVisible property to define an context tab category‘s initial visibility state. The category’s visibility can then be dynamically changed on the client side using the ASPxClientRibbon.SetContextTabCategoryVisible method.


If an item’s server RibbonContextTabCategory.Visible property is set to false, the category is not rendered into the web page at all, so it can’t be manipulated on the client side.
