    Determining the Active Series in a Chart (10)

    Is it possible to determine if a series in a chart is active within code. There does not seem to be a way to determine which series was selected if all I wanted to do was manipulate one in the collection.

    If you just want to apply code to the selected series, apply it to the Selection object. To determine whether the selection is a series, and if so, which one (if you really need to know), you could use code like this:

    Dim i As Integer
    If TypeName(Selection) = "Series" Then
    For i = 1 To ActiveChart.SeriesCollection.Count
    If Selection.Name = ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(i).Name Then
    MsgBox "You selected series # " & i
    Exit For
    End If
    Next i
    MsgBox "No series selected."
    End If
