Excel VBA - Detect Sheet Protection Status

Last Modified: 2016-02-10
Is there code I can use (maybe in an if statement) that checks the current protection status of a sheet?

For example, if I use 2 toggle buttons to protect or unprotect a sheet BUT there are other piece of code in other modules that also protect and unprotect the sheet then I need those toggle buttons to react to the current status versus only when the user presses those.  The problem now is the toggle buttons may look like the sheet is protected when it really isn't.
