Gui guestion about how to temporarily disable the trigger of an event

I have a drop down list box called lstProcess with the following 2 subroutines.

Private Sub DeleteProcess()
..
' Line to disable the call call of lstProcess_click
lstProcess.ListIndex = lstProcess.ListIndex - 1   'This line calls lstProcess_click
' Line to enable the call call of lstProcess_click

...
End Sub

Private Sub lstProcess_Click()
MsgBox("lstProcess_Click")
End Sub

Is there any way to temporarily stop the call of lstProcess_click.

Sincerely,
Celia

you may want to use variable to do so


ie
private notshowclick as boolean

Private Sub DeleteProcess()
..
' Line to disable the call call of lstProcess_click
 notshowclick = true
lstProcess.ListIndex = lstProcess.ListIndex - 1   'This line calls lstProcess_click
notshowclick = false
' Line to enable the call call of lstProcess_click

...
End Sub

Private Sub lstProcess_Click()
if notshowclick = true then exit sub
MsgBox("lstProcess_Click")
End Sub

If I were you i'd set form level flag and enclose the event procedure code in an if statement. . .

Private lstProcessclickenabled as boolean
Private Sub DeleteProcess()
..
lstProcessclickenabled = false
lstProcess.ListIndex = lstProcess.ListIndex - 1   'This line calls lstProcess_click
lstProcessclickenabled = true

...
End Sub

Private Sub lstProcess_Click()
if lstProcessclickenabled then
MsgBox("lstProcess_Click")
end if
End Sub
