Add Tab to Touch UI Page Properties

I am trying to get adding new tabs and removing tabs/items in Page Properties working.

So far I have read through this similar question: http://help-forums.adobe.com/content/adobeforums/en/experience-manager-forum/adobe-experience-manage...
Which lead me to these Adobe links and the github example:
https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-1/author/page-authoring/managing-pages.html#Creating%20a%20New%...
https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-1/develop/extending/customizing-page-properties/page-properties...
https://github.com/Adobe-Marketing-Cloud/aem-authoring-extension-page-dialog/blob/master/src/main/co...

I have copied the github example of a .context.xml for the page's Page Properties and it is not hiding anything. I also replaced cq:showOnCreate="{Boolean}false" with cq:hideOnEdit="{Boolean}true" like the previous adobe help forum suggested and this does not work either.

How do I hide and show items?

Also, in the past with Classic UI we were able to do something like this to include more tabs:

<sample jcr:primaryType="cq:Widget" path="/apps/company/components/Pages/basePage/sample_tab.infinity.json" xtype="cqinclude"/>

How do I add new tabs in Touch UI with something similar to infinity.json? Granite include?

You are correct - there is a lack of documentation on this use case. I will check with Adobe people on this use case.

I want to see if anyone has written about it or sample on this.

Not sure if you get it working.

I try to add a region tab in the page properties, here is the code:

Hi,

In Order to get the similar functionality like xtype:cqinclude , there is resourceType  "granite/ui/components/foundation/include" in Touch UI.

You can use it like this : 

  1. <sample
  2. jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
  3. path="/apps/company/components/Pages/basePage/sample_tab"
  4. sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/foundation/include"/>
