What do you mean by "invalidate"? Do you mean stop it from showing, or disable it, or what?

Invalidate is a VBA Ribbon command. The sample dbs that was on the link here have examples. Removing the link to the most useful Ribbon site on the planet seems a bit much :-(

The sample db attached from Here has examples of the Validate command.

Open the VBA editor and search for 'invalidate'

For example:

Private Sub btnSet_Click()
Dim strSQL As String

    If Nz(Me!lstData, 0) <> 0 Then
        strSQL = "UPDATE tblData SET tblData.txtName = '" & Nz(Me!txtText, " ") & "', tblData.txtSubName = '" & Nz(Me!txtSubText, " ") & "', tblData.txtImageMso = '" & Me!ComboImageMso & "', tblData.bolVisible = " & Me!chkVisible & " "
        strSQL = strSQL & "WHERE (((tblData.ID)=" & Me!lstData & ")); "
       
        CurrentDb.Execute strSQL
        Me!lstData.Requery
        Me!txtText = ""
        Me!txtSubText = ""
        Me!chkVisible = 0
        Me!lstData = Null
        Me!ComboImageMso = ""
    End If
   
    gobjRibbon.Invalidate
   
End Sub
