Is it possible to Show/Hide BackstageGroup dynamically?

I know I have asked similar questions before but I don't think I have quite asked this one. It's now a further 6 months and time to revisit BackstageView again...

I want to hide GroupPrintSettings in Word but dynamically activate it via a checkbox in a BackstageTab.

  • Can I actually do this?
  • Is there a way to activate the Print backstage tab after it has been done?


Thanks

PS Also is there a way to modify the Title of a topic after it has been posted? This is specifically about Built-In BackstageGroup and I meant to show that in the Title...
it may be unhelpful, but it's all I've got...

Hello Roger,

This doesn't work for me. I assume this is impossible to do.

IRibbonUI.ActivateTabMso("TabPrint") throws an exception for me.
