The following code example prompts the user for a yes or no response before enabling editing on a document in a protected view window. This code must be placed in a class module, and an instance of the class must be correctly initialized for this code example to work correctly. For more information about how to do this, see Using Events with the Application Object.

The following code example assumes that you have declared an application variable called "App" in your general declarations and have set the variable equal to the Word Application object.

Private Sub App_ProtectedViewWindowBeforeEdit(ByVal PvWindow As ProtectedViewWindow, Cancel As Boolean) 
 Dim intResponse As Integer 
 
 intResponse = MsgBox("Do you really " _ 
 & "want to edit the document?", _ 
 vbYesNo) 
 
 If intResponse = vbNo Then Cancel = True 
End Sub
