How to: Show and Hide a Worksheet

  • 2 minutes to read

This example demonstrates how to manage worksheet visibility in a workbook. To do this, use the following properties.


A workbook must always contain at least one visible worksheet.

// Hide the "Sheet2" worksheet and prevent end-users from unhiding it via the user interface.
// To make this worksheet visible again, use the Worksheet.Visible property.
workbook.Worksheets["Sheet2"].VisibilityType = WorksheetVisibilityType.VeryHidden;

// Hide the "Sheet3" worksheet. 
// In this state, the worksheet can be unhidden via the user interface.
workbook.Worksheets["Sheet3"].Visible = false;

After executing the code above, the "Sheet2" worksheet is hidden, and cannot be accessed by an end-user in SpreadsheetControl. The "Sheet3" worksheet is also hidden, but its visibility can be restored by an end-user.
