Excel VBA Type Mismatch calling Private Sub from ListBox Click

0 votes

A method that will update a specific ListBox (whose listfillrange is a named range with a dynamic size) is attached to a Sheet on which I have an ActiveX List Box. The first sheet of the Microsoft Excel Objects contains all of the following code.

Function to update ListBox

Private Sub update(lst As ListBox)
    lst.ListIndex = -1
    lst.ListFillRange = lst.ListFillRange
End Sub

I want to call this function in two scenarios:

  1. When the Worksheet changes:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    If Not Application.Intersect("{some ranges}") Is Nothing Then update Me.ListBox
End Sub
  1. When a different ListBox is clicked on:
Private Sub OtherListBox_Click()
    update Me.ListBox
End Sub

However when the code tries to call the update sub it gives me a Type Mismatch error on the update line This is my first time using List Boxes, so my understanding is pretty limited and I can't understand why both scenarios won't work

Confusion: You must declare the parameter as MSForms if you are using ActiveX controls. Listbox.

Private Sub update(lst As MSForms.ListBox)
    lst.ListIndex = -1
    lst.ListFillRange = lst.ListFillRange 
End Sub

ListBox (without the MSForms.) will refer to the "older" Listbox type (so called Form Controls).
