I have a print button that opens a picturebox containing the printers on a users machine
If they do not choose a printer I am trying to make the picturebox disappear both these do not work:

Private Sub picPrinters_LostFocus()
Me.picPrinters.Visible = False
End Sub


Private Sub lstPrinters_LostFocus()
picPrinters.Visible = False
End Sub

Open in new window

printer
How to do this ?

Sorry, I work with a lot of people and forget who is Excel and who is VB6. A small project would be great.

This will do it
Private Sub lstPrinters_Click()
picPrinters.Visible = False
End Sub

Yes, already have that code in the actual print when a selection is made, but just trying to make it disappear in case they don't make a selection

Well then if you are sure that the listbox has focus (you can use SetFocus to make sure it does), this will work.

Private Sub lstPrinters_LostFocus()
picPrinters.Visible = False
End Sub

This sets the form's KeyPreview property to True and then closes the picturebox form's click event.
