Hello Experts,

Please view attached screenshot.

togglehide.PNG
In the screenshot above, the worksheet is locked.  Is there VBA code (I assume that is the only way to accomplish this) that will look at the "Employees" worksheet, and if the worksheet IS locked, then the "Toggle" button is INVISIBLE.  And when the worksheet is unlocked, then the "Toggle" button is VISIBLE.

Every worksheet has it's own toggle button that I will be applying this to.

I assume you will need to know the name of the "Toggle" button, but I don't know where to find it's name, or even if it does in fact have a unique name.  

Thank you in advance for your help!

This is the syntax you require.
    ' for an ActiveX button
    Me.ButtonName.Visible = ActiveSheet.ProtectContents = True
    ' for a Form button
    ActiveSheet.Shapes("ButtonName").Visible = ActiveSheet.ProtectContents = True

Open in new window

Every control (including buttons have a unique name, to find that name right click on the control (you may have to click on "Design" from the developer tab first), the name will be visible in the "Name" drop-down box on the top right corner of your screen, or type
?Selection.Name

Open in new window

and hit ENTER in the immediate window (Ctrl+G to open it)
