I use the below code in a module within catalog_product_view.xml to display a new Tab on the Product Page.

    <referenceBlock name="product.info.details">
        <block class="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\View" name="example.tab" template="Vendor_Module::example.phtml" group="detailed_info">
                <argument translate="true" name="title" xsi:type="string">Example Title</argument>

I'd like to know if you can Display/Hide this based on a Product Attribute? Normally, I'd embed an IF within the phtml file. But wondered if it could also be done this way instead?

Reason why I ask, is because I don't want the Tab to load if a Product Attribute = Yes. As the information might not be relevant.

You can do that even though its not recommended in my opinion .

plus what you have done already , you can create an after plugin for the public method Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\View\Tabs::getTabs() which will return an array of the tabs that will be added to the page .

Then you can use the registry to get the current product object and check for the attribute you want , if yes then you can just remove that tab (title in your case) from the returned array in getTabs() ,or else return it as it is .
