Call Sub vs. fake a key press

P: n/a
First, the subject probably doesn't use the correct terms but I'm not sure
what it's called in VB.

I'm writing a media player app. The subroutine that handles the "open file"
button contains an If statement to see if a file was already playing and if
so executes some code to stop the previous file from playing among other
things. There's also a "stop" button on the form that contains the exact
same code. Obviously it would be easier if there was just one subroutine
containing the code and that sub would be called from the If in the open
routine and from the stop routine. My question is, is there a way to make
the program think the "Stop" button was pressed? I.E. is there anything
statement I can put in the If statement in the "open file" sub that will
"trigger" just the same as if the "stop" button had been pressed? If so, are
there any caveats to faking a button click from within the program versus
just putting the code in a sub and calling it from both events?
