VB.net Excel Add-in - call three toggle button clicks at once

Hi. Below is the code behind three toggle button clicks on my Excel Add-In VB.net.
Each opens a CustomTaskPane. What code would I use to make all three happens simyltaneously behind a further ribbon button


    Private Sub ToggleButton1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As Microsoft.Office.Tools.Ribbon.RibbonControlEventArgs) Handles ToggleButton1.Click
        Globals.ThisAddIn.Where_TaskPane.Visible = _
    TryCast(sender, Microsoft.Office.Tools.Ribbon.RibbonToggleButton).Checked

    End Sub

    Private Sub ToggleButton__FROM_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As Microsoft.Office.Tools.Ribbon.RibbonControlEventArgs) Handles ToggleButton__FROM.Click
        Globals.ThisAddIn.From_TaskPane.Visible = _
    TryCast(sender, Microsoft.Office.Tools.Ribbon.RibbonToggleButton).Checked
    End Sub

    Private Sub ToggleButton_SELECT_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As Microsoft.Office.Tools.Ribbon.RibbonControlEventArgs) Handles ToggleButton_SELECT.Click
        Globals.ThisAddIn.Select_TaskPane.Visible = _
TryCast(sender, Microsoft.Office.Tools.Ribbon.RibbonToggleButton).Checked
    End Sub

One possible solution:
Private Sub CommonButton_SELECT_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As Microsoft.Office.Tools.Ribbon.RibbonControlEventArgs) Handles ToggleButton_SELECT.Click
        ToggleButton1_Click( Button1, e)
        ToggleButton__FROM_Click(Button__FROM, e)
        ToggleButton_SELECT_Click(Button_SELECT , e)
    End Sub

Where Button1, Button__FROM and Button_SELECT are the instance of your buttons defined on your ribbon.

Note: Next time include the VSTO zone in your question, all Add-ins build with VS uses the VSTO technology and Interop.

Hi

I get the following errors. Also the VSTO zone does not come up if you search for VSTO.1

Where are your buttons defined?
Can you provide your source code of the the ribbon and Add-in regarding the 3 buttons?
All you need to do is get a reference to the buttons - Most likely the ribbon button scopes are private , you need to make them public or create a public property for every button, so that you can access them from your ThisAddin.vb source code?)
Note: I do not have all your source code and do not know how you implement the buttons. I provide guidelines for the posted info only.

        Globals.ThisAddIn.Where_TaskPane.Visible = True
