Hi Greg,

Thanks for reviewing this.

I agree even I added this function hesitantly as didn't realize that I can use
is_visible for this purpose. Thanks for pointing that out I will have a look
at it.

Right, I must be able to get rid of these 2 functions once I use
is_visible callback.

Yes I agree.
