XRDesignPanel.SetCommandVisibility(ReportCommand, CommandVisibility) Method

Changes the visibility state of the specified report command in the End-User Designer.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraReports.UserDesigner

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraReports.v19.1.Extensions.dll


public void SetCommandVisibility(
    ReportCommand command,
    CommandVisibility visibility
Public Sub SetCommandVisibility(
    command As ReportCommand,
    visibility As CommandVisibility


Name Type Description
command ReportCommand

A ReportCommand enumeration value which specifies the command whose visibility needs to be changed.

visibility CommandVisibility

A CommandVisibility enumeration value which specifies the new visibility state for the command.


In the End-User Designer, every report command is realized by a toolbar button, a menu item, a context menu item, or a verb. The CommandVisibility enumeration lists the available visibility states of report commands.

The SetCommandVisibility method can change the visibility state of only one report command at a time. To change the visibility of several report commands simultaneously, use the overloaded XRDesignPanel.SetCommandVisibility method.

To get the current visibility state of a report command, use the XRDesignPanel.GetCommandVisibility method.


The ReportCommand.ShowDesignerTab, ReportCommand.ShowPreviewTab, ReportCommand.ShowHTMLViewTab and ReportCommand.ShowScriptsTab commands are related only to a Standard End-User Designer. To control the visibility of corresponding Ribbon pages in a Ribbon End-User Designer, manually modify the RibbonPage.Visible property for the corresponding page of a RibbonControl.


This example illustrates how to hide some of the Report Designer commands by calling the XRDesignMdiController.SetCommandVisibility method of a Design form's XRDesignMdiController.

using DevExpress.XtraReports.UI;
using DevExpress.XtraReports.UserDesigner;
// ...

private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e) {
    // Create a Design Tool with an assigned report instance.
    ReportDesignTool designTool = new ReportDesignTool(new XtraReport1());

    // Access the standard or ribbon-based Designer form and its MDI Controller.
    // IDesignForm designForm = designTool.DesignForm;
    IDesignForm designForm = designTool.DesignRibbonForm;
    XRDesignMdiController mdiController = designForm.DesignMdiController;

    // Hide the "New with Wizard..." item on the File menu,
    // and the "Design in Report Wizard..." item in the report's smart tag.
    mdiController.SetCommandVisibility(ReportCommand.NewReportWizard, CommandVisibility.None);
    mdiController.SetCommandVisibility(ReportCommand.VerbReportWizard, CommandVisibility.None);

    // Load a Report Designer in a dialog window.
    // designTool.ShowDesignerDialog();
