Excel VB.net Add-in regenerate custom TaskPane


I use the code below to add a custom task pane. I need to erase the task pane so that I can add it at a later point. How do I delete a taskpane so that I can use the code below to add it again?

   Private oTaskPane_Select As TaskPane_Select
    Public WithEvents Select_CustomTaskPane As Microsoft.Office.Tools.CustomTaskPane

 Private Sub ThisAddIn_Startup() Handles Me.Startup

          oTaskPane_Select = New TaskPane_Select()
            Select_CustomTaskPane = CustomTaskPanes.Add(oTaskPane_Select, "SELECT Elements")
            Select_CustomTaskPane.DockPosition = Office.MsoCTPDockPosition.msoCTPDockPositionBottom

Hi murbro, would the CustomTaskPanes.Remove method work for you? Here is an example (for Word but quite similar) showing the method in action:
