I have an application which has a RibbonControl and various tab items etc on it.

I want to be able to enable or disable a tab or toolstrip button by searching for the control by name.

e.g. Form.Controls.Find("tabHome", True)

This call returns Nothing nor does it appear possible looking into the options within Form.RibbonControlAdv1.Header.MainItems.

Does anyone know how this could be done?

Thanks in advance
