How to assign Custom White Balance function to an external button ?

Is there a way to assign one of the external buttons to the Custom White Balance option ?, I want to be able to quickly set the WB for indoor and outdoor shooting, I have an Expodisc, thanks

Why don't you take the time to read your K-5 camera operating manual.

Thank you, I understand the USER options to store preferences, but I am talking about something else, a quick way to setup and configure Custom WB under different lighting conditions, maybe the problem is that I have previous experience with Olympus DSLR and with the E-5 you can assign a button to Custom WB and each time you press it it will store a new value.
