How to hide component from Component Tabs?

HI

I am working on a grasshopper plugin. I want to some components not showing in Tabs, but can be access by typing component’s name on canvas.
Is it possible?

GH_Component.Exposure property determines how the component is seen in a menu, using the GH_Exposure enum flags.

No idea if the “hidden” option hides things from the text search or not, I’ll leave you to try that out.

Link to docs:

        public override GH_Exposure Exposure 
        {
            get
            {
                return GH_Exposure.hidden;
            }
        }

I added this code at end of component class. But don’t see any changes appears.

I restart rhino, it works! Thank you.
But typing name on canvas also disappear. How can i access the hidden component?
