Hi, I ran  the following code in my .NET addin create a (hidden) commandbar with a button. What VBA code do I write to use the commandbarbuttons's execute method to start code in the .NET addin.

Public Sub LaunchPrecedents()
    Dim octl As CommandBarControl
    For Each octl In Application.CommandBars("Cell").Controls
        If octl.Tag = "RefTreeAnalyser" Then
            octl.Controls(1).Execute
        End If
    Next
End Sub

Sorry I am confused. Your question is

>Excel VBA Running a hidden CommandBar created in Excel VB.net Add-in

so my assumption was you have created a hidden commandbar and need code to execute it. Is the question now

>Excel VBA Creating and Running a hidden CommandBar created in Excel VB.net Add-in

if so check following

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/aa165073(v=office.10).aspx

There should be a .visible property which you can set to false.

For executing it, the code you have should work.
