Code shaking when selecting a cell for a long time



I  face  problem  when select  cells into  columns C OR  D   and  will  shake  for  long  time  it  seems  to    loop throught  all  of  the  cells  are  empty  .it  can  be  problem. 

the  code should  hide  formula  in  column E   when  select  the  cell .

Option Explicit
Dim zDic       As New Dictionary
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
    'Exit Sub
    Dim zCell  As Range
    Dim zRg    As Range
    Dim lr  As Long
    Set zRg = Range("E2:E500")
    If Target.CountLarge > 1 Then Exit Sub
    If zDic.Count <> zRg.Count Then
        For Each zCell In zRg
            zDic.Add zCell.Address, zCell.FormulaLocal
        If Intersect(Target, zRg) Is Nothing Then
            For Each zCell In zRg
                zCell.FormulaLocal = zDic.Item(zCell.Address)
            If Target.HasFormula Then
                With Target
                    .Value = .Value
                End With
            End If
        End If
    End If

End Sub

any  chance  to  fix  this problem please?




In my rush to answer you, I misunderstood the purpose of your macro. I now see that you copied the code from another site (and modified it) so I have deleted my incorrect answer.

I don't know what you mean by the code "will  shake  for  long  time" and suspect others will not either. Certainly when I try the original code, there is no delay or screen "shake" if I change values in C:D but if I pick a new cell in E, I see the formula in the formula bar (briefly but not afterwards) before I see just the value.

I leave it to others to answer this (but would suggest you instead use VBA to implement the hidden cell in a protected sheet).
