I want to write code that will effect the current selected series on a line graph in Excel.

What VBA code would I need that would display the currently selected series number, when a user presses a button.

i.e. if a user has "Series 1" selected on the graph, then a messagebox will appear saying "you have Series 1 selected"

i.e. if user has "Series 2" selected, then a messagebox will appear saying "you have Series 2 selected"
