Im using code from website:
to display a combobox when I double click any cell that contains a validation list in it. I'm not great with VBA so I am having problems finding what each part of the code does. This is causing problems for another bit of code that I use to display a msgbox when certain values are selected from the list.
The MsgBox shows up great when I select an item from the validation list but does not work at all when I select the same item from the double-clicked combo box.
It would be great if I could get the MsgBox to work both ways.
This is the code that displays the MsgBox when target value is selected from list
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Select Case Target.AddressLocal(False, False) Case Is = "B4", "B5", "B6", "B7", "B8", "B9", "B10", "B11", "B12" If Target.Value = "H" Then MsgBox "This is a pop for extra information. Savvy?", vbYesNo, "Yo!" End If End Select End Sub
This is the code that displays the ComboBox when I double click a validation list cell
Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, _ Cancel As Boolean) Dim str As String Dim cboTemp As OLEObject Dim ws As Worksheet Dim wsList As Worksheet Set ws = ActiveSheet Set wsList = Sheets("ValidationLists") Cancel = True Set cboTemp = ws.OLEObjects("TempCombo") On Error Resume Next With cboTemp 'clear and hide the combo box .ListFillRange = "" .LinkedCell = "" .Visible = False End With On Error GoTo errHandler If Target.Validation.Type = 3 Then 'if the cell contains a data validation list Application.EnableEvents = False 'get the data validation formula str = Target.Validation.Formula1 str = Right(str, Len(str) - 1) With cboTemp 'show the combobox with the list .Visible = True .Left = Target.Left .Top = Target.Top .Width = Target.Width + 5 .Height = Target.Height + 5 .ListFillRange = str .LinkedCell = Target.Address End With cboTemp.Activate End If errHandler: Application.EnableEvents = True Exit Sub End Sub '========================================= Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) Dim str As String Dim cboTemp As OLEObject Dim ws As Worksheet Set ws = ActiveSheet Application.EnableEvents = False Application.ScreenUpdating = True Set cboTemp = ws.OLEObjects("TempCombo") On Error Resume Next With cboTemp .Top = 10 .Left = 10 .Width = 0 .ListFillRange = "" .LinkedCell = "" .Visible = False .Value = "" End With errHandler: Application.EnableEvents = True Exit Sub End Sub
