Ribbon checkbox affecting all opened explorers?

As far as I can see when clicking on a ribbon menu checkbox while having more than one opened explorers checks/unchecks the checkbox for all instances.
Is there a way to set a ribbon checkbox to affect only the current open outlook explorer - as for example switching off and on the reading pane does?

Hi Ivaylo,

Yes, there is. Please try to use the following code:

private void adxRibbonCheckBox1_PropertyChanging(object sender, AddinExpress.MSO.ADXRibbonPropertyChangingEventArgs e)
   if (e.PropertyType == AddinExpress.MSO.ADXRibbonControlPropertyType.Pressed)
       // clear the check box in other windows
       e.Value = false;
