Possible to hide a menu choice dynamically?

My question, is it possible to hide a menu choice dynamically?
For example, depending on a variable defined "false" before, the menu choice "MQTT settings" would not appear.

I have read in the forum if there is a way to dynamically hide a choice in the left menus. But I didn't find the solution. Did I search wrong?

Thanks for the help


Easy to do if you craft your own menu using node-red-contrib-ui-contextmenu - Contextmenu location - #45 by Paul-Reed

You can use ui-control to enable and disable a tab or show and hide, you can disable and hide in combination to

[{"id":"aef67b0c.38751","type":"inject","z":"b779de97.b1b46","name":"true","props":[{"p":"enable","v":"true","vt":"bool"},{"p":"topic","vt":"str"}],"repeat":"","crontab":"","once":false,"onceDelay":0.1,"topic":"","x":70,"y":1480,"wires":[["46ccfdb2.490184"]]},{"id":"46ccfdb2.490184","type":"switch","z":"b779de97.b1b46","name":"","property":"enable","propertyType":"msg","rules":[{"t":"true"},{"t":"else"}],"checkall":"true","repair":false,"outputs":2,"x":160,"y":1520,"wires":[["2bddd26.51c5f2e"],["e7f55eab.d7c8f8"]]},{"id":"2bddd26.51c5f2e","type":"template","z":"b779de97.b1b46","name":"","field":"payload","fieldType":"msg","format":"handlebars","syntax":"mustache","template":"{\"tabs\": {\"show\": \"Level\", \"enable\": \"Level\"}}","output":"json","x":330,"y":1500,"wires":[["b02f0367.55436"]]},{"id":"e7f55eab.d7c8f8","type":"template","z":"b779de97.b1b46","name":"","field":"payload","fieldType":"msg","format":"handlebars","syntax":"mustache","template":"{\"tabs\": {\"hide\": \"Level\", \"disable\": \"Level\"}}","output":"json","x":330,"y":1540,"wires":[["b02f0367.55436"]]},{"id":"91a293b8.336418","type":"inject","z":"b779de97.b1b46","name":"false","props":[{"p":"enable","v":"false","vt":"bool"},{"p":"topic","vt":"str"}],"repeat":"","crontab":"","once":false,"onceDelay":0.1,"topic":"","x":70,"y":1560,"wires":[["46ccfdb2.490184"]]},{"id":"b02f0367.55436","type":"ui_ui_control","z":"b779de97.b1b46","name":"","events":"all","x":510,"y":1520,"wires":[[]]}]

change the name "level" in the templates to a name of the tab you want to affect.


@E1cid Your answer is exactly what I asked for. The answers to the questions come almost before you have time to ask them :rofl:


@Paul-Reed Your proposal of floating menus was one of my wishes. I didn't understand the idea of how this node works until you pointed it out to me. It's still a node written in part by Bart :open_mouth:
(it was related to SVG)
I'll definitely use it. I was looking for sub menus. :+1: :+1:
So just don't forget to hide the standard NR menu.
That's cool.
Thanks to both of you !


So that gave me an idea.
To make the dashboard multilingual according to a previously defined variable, you just have to use this method to hide the menus of the languages you don't want to see. It becomes quite simple.
1 Tab in English
1 Tab in French
1 Tab in German
etc... they are the same duplicated and translated.
and depending on the variable, we hide the desired Tabs dynamically.
