When a user clicks a tab, control is passed to the add-in via this method. The add-in is expected to show or hide groups and controls intended to be visible or hidden on that tab.


Your add-in is responsible for showing and hiding the controls on a tab to simulate moving between tabs, making it look like the tab is a container for the controls. However, tabs are not containers for the groups or controls. Tabs are controls that are displayed in a certain way, making them look like control containers.
