How can I activate a button control that does not have a Value property

I have an application that uses a user-defined OCX enhanced button.  I want the On_Click event of one of these buttons to activate the On_Click event of another button, although this particular command button does not have a Value property - Using the conventional vb button control I could simply say

cmdButton2.Value = True

 in order to activate it - how can I achieve same in my scenario.

Thanks in advance

You can call the method directly:

Sub cmdButton1_Click()
    Call cmdButton2_Click()

End Sub

A more oo approach would be to create a public method, place the button click event handler code into it and call it from both button click events. The other advantage to this is that you won't get tangled up in your error handling routines if you use vb "bubble-up" error handling.

Well Erick37's approach was correct, but I believe my answer has merit too.
