Office addin for Excel

Occasional Contributor

Hi all...

 is there any way to reload a office add-in task pane (based on react-js) from the code itself. 

actually my requirement is to reload the task pane while satisfying certain conditions. how can i do that using JavaScript?

Nb: when I checked Microsoft documentation, it has already mentioned how to show or hide the task pane but I need close or reload functionality. 

expecting your valuable suggestions ...

I hope this helps!
