Can you give me the scenario? If it's not in the deployment descriptor, the associated icon won't be available, so it won't be a client navigation thing.

If it's done programattically (shame on you), I believe you get the PortletModeException

public class PortletModeException
extends PortletException

The PortletModeException is thrown when a portlet tries to use or set a portlet mode that is not supported by the current runtime environment.

Similarly, there's a WindowStateException

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
