Sheet visibility

Hiding a worksheet can help prevent unauthorized or accidental changes to your file.

There are three visibility state as like Microsoft Excel,

State Description
Visible You can see the worksheet once the component is loaded.
Hidden This worksheet is not visible, but you can unhide by selecting the sheet from List All Sheets dropdown menu.
VeryHidden This worksheet is not visible and cannot be unhidden. Changing the state property to Visible is the only way to view this sheet.

The following code example shows the three types of sheet visibility state.
