Open the file called Battleship game.xlsx and create a subroutine which handles the SelectionChange event for Sheet1.
Use the drop down lists at the top of the code window.
The Target parameter returns a reference to the range that you select. Add a message box which tells the user the Address of the cell they have clicked on:
Test your code works by clicking on a cell.
Write an If statement which changes the fill colour of the cell to grey and shows a message if you click an empty cell:
Your message could resemble this one.
Add an Else clause which changes the fill colour to red and shows a message if the cell isn't empty.
Here we have included the type of ship you hit. A = aircraft carrier, B = battleship, C = cruiser, D = destroyer and S = submarine.
The game won't work if a user attempts to select multiple cells. Add an If statement at the start of the subroutine which checks if the Count or CountLarge property of the target is greater than 1. If so, display a message and exit the subroutine.
That should slow down the cheaters!
You could add a separate subroutine to reset the game by changing the ColorIndex property of the cells to xlNone.
Take a few shots and then save and close the file.
