Did Hungarian Army even participated in attack? Or just occupatied its territory after the capitulation?

Hungary had a non-agression treaty with Yugoslavia, so the Hungarian Army only entered Yugoslav territory after Croat declared independence.

I know that at the time of the German invasion at the beginning of April 1941, there was an autonomous Banovina of Croatia, established in 1939 under the sporazum. The Banovina was self-governing, and was subject to the Yugoslav Government only for foreign affairs and defence purposes.
The Banovina included not only historical Croatia-Slavonia and Dalmatia, but also large parts of Bosnia and the Vojvodina, in fact all areas with an ethnic Croat population. The Ban of Croatia was Ivan Subasic, a Croat who had served in the Serbian army during the First World War, and was acceptable to the Royal Yugoslav Government. After the German invasion, Subasic went into exile with the king, but then switched his allegiance to Tito.
Was it that the government of the Banovina was taken over by the Ustasha, which arrived with the Italian army, and independence then declared, or did the Banovina of Croatia declare its independence even before being taken over by the Ustasha?
