When creating custom ribbons, at some points in the application I need to be able to enable and or disable the button commands.
Here is the specific portion of the ribbon script:
VBA Code:
<customUI xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2009/07/customui" onLoad="OnMainLoad"> 
  <ribbon startFromScratch="false"> 
    <tabs> 
      <tab id="CustomTab" label="Refresh-Ribbon">
    <group id="Group1" label="Problema"> 
        <button id="Button1" 
                   label="Run" 
                   imageMso="RecordingPlay" 
                   size="large" 
                   onAction="Run_OnAction"
             getEnabled="Button_GetEnabled"/> 
        <button id="Button2" 
                   label="Pause" 
                   imageMso="PauseSharedSpace" 
                   size="large" 
                   onAction="Pause_OnAction"
             getEnabled="Button_GetEnabled"/> 
    </group>     
      </tab> 
    </tabs> 
  </ribbon> 
</customUI>
The problem is that I can't get the ribbon to refresh before of call macro main to enable the Pause Button

VBA Code:
Public MyRibbonUI As IRibbonUI
Public EnabledButton1 As Boolean
Public EnabledButton2 As Boolean
Public run As Boolean
Public pause As Boolean

Public Sub OnMainLoad(ribbon As IRibbonUI)
    Set MyRibbonUI = ribbon
    run = False
    pause = False
    EnabledButton1 = True
    EnabledButton2 = False
End Sub

Public Sub Button_GetEnabled(control As IRibbonControl, ByRef Enabled)
    Select Case control.ID
        Case "Button1"
            Enabled = EnabledButton1
        Case "Button2"
            Enabled = EnabledButton2
    End Select
End Sub

Public Sub Run_OnAction(Button As IRibbonControl)
    EnabledButton1 = False
    EnabledButton2 = True
    MyRibbonUI.InvalidateControl ("Button1")
    MyRibbonUI.InvalidateControl ("Button2")
    'Refreshing the ribbon interface before of call Main
    If run = False And pause = False Then
        run = True
        Call Main
    ElseIf run = True And pause = True Then
        pause = False
    End If
End Sub

Sub Pause_OnAction(Button As IRibbonControl)
    pause = True
    EnabledButton1 = True
    EnabledButton2 = False
    MyRibbonUI.InvalidateControl ("Button1")
    MyRibbonUI.InvalidateControl ("Button2")
    'Refreshing the ribbon interface
End Sub

Public Sub Main()
    i = 1
    Do While run
        Cells(1, 1) = i
        i = i + 1
        DoEvents
        If pause Then
            Call Wait
        End If
    Loop
End Sub

Sub Wait()
    If pause Then
        Do
           DoEvents
        Loop Until Not pause
    End If
End Sub
