The buttons on the tabbar are stored an an array, all you have to do is remove the button or add a button programmatically to the array in that event action.

Got it and i used the code like...

NSUInteger indexToRemove = 3;
NSMutableArray *controllersToKeep = [NSMutableArray arrayWithArray:tabBarController.viewControllers];
UIViewController *removedViewController = [[controllersToKeep objectAtIndex:indexToRemove] retain];
[controllersToKeep removeObjectAtIndex:indexToRemove];
[tabBarController setViewControllers:controllersToKeep animated:YES];

Thanks a lot KoolStar for your replay

Now it is working....
