# Hide a Toolbar Item?

In an ArcEngine application, if I add a command (or tool) to a toolbar can I then hide that command (or tool)?

I can do this:

```int itemIndex = toolbar.AddItem("esriControls.ControlsMapFullExtentCommand", 0, -1, false, 0, esriCommandStyles.esriCommandStyleIconOnly);
IToolbarItem item = toolbar.GetItem(elementTool);
```

But I see nothing in IToolbarItem that sets visibility.  Is this even possible?
