    I don't find a way to disable the Sheet tab. However you should be able to hide this using:

            FpSpread1.TabStripPolicy = FarPoint.Win.Spread.TabStripPolicy.Never

    Thanks but this doesn't work for me, because the <b>TabStripPolicy.Never</b> hide me the TabStripInsertTab too, I'll try with the VISIBLE=FALSE propertie for each Sheet in the collection.


    Thanks for you reply.

    Hello Jars,

    Yes you are right, you need to set Sheet's visible property to false. However, in case you want to enable/disable certain sheets based on different criteria then you can trap the ActiveSheetChanged event and then set the sheet visiblility to false based on certain criteria or you can do this in FormLoad event as well.

    Code snippet for the same is:


      private void fpSpread1_ActiveSheetChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
                if (fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[0, 0].Text == "Test")
                    fpSpread1.Sheets[1].Visible = false;


    Hope this will help. Thanks.
