Excel 2013 ListBox event

I'm working with excel VBA 2013 and multiselect listbox.

Whenever a user selects or deselects and item in the list box I would like to fire an event that gets me the value of that item and whether or not it was selected.  Is there an event trigger that tells which item was clicked on without having to cycle through all items in the list?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I don't thinks so. The code must loop through the contents to find which item(s) are selected.

pls try EDITED Code

Private Sub ListBox1_MouseUp(ByVal Button As Integer, ByVal Shift As Integer, ByVal X As Single, ByVal Y As Single)
    Dim lListRow As Long
    If Button = 1 Then
        lListRow = (Y / g_sLBRwHeight) + 0.5 + ListBox1.TopIndex - 1
        If lListRow > (ListBox1.ListCount - 1) Then lListRow = ListBox1.ListCount - 1
        MsgBox "Element " & ListBox1.List(lListRow) & ": " & IIf(ListBox1.Selected(lListRow), "Selected", "Not Selected")
    End If
End Sub
Private Sub UserForm_Activate()
    Dim sOldHeight
    If g_sLBRwHeight = 0 Then
        With ListBox1
            .TopIndex = .ListCount - 1
            sOldHeight = .Height
            Do While .TopIndex = 0
                .Height = .Height - 10
                .TopIndex = .ListCount - 1
            g_sLBRwHeight = .Height / (.ListCount - .TopIndex + 1)
            .Height = sOldHeight
            .TopIndex = 0
        End With
    End If
End Sub
