     Often times when writing an application, I want the user to be prompted when he quits the program (ie. "Are you sure you want to quit?"). The only thing about this is when I am debugging the program and using it myself in VB's IDE, I find this messagebox to be annoying. So I wrote this little function that will return TRUE if the app is running in the IDE, and FALSE if it running as a EXE.

I've previously posted this Function, but I saw someone somewhere asking for one of this nature so I will re-post. Enjoy.

i guess this works only because debug.print lines are ignored when compiled as an exe, right?

No, it errors because of division by 0, mathmatically impossible

USING CONDITIONAL COMPILATION You can use conditional compilation to selectively run blocks of code. The following sample macro uses conditional compilation: Sub Test() #Const Debugging = 1 Dim Name As String: Name = "Nancy" ' If you are debugging, change the Debugging constant to 0. #If Debugging = 0 Then ' This debug statement is not executed unless the Debugging ' constant is equal to zero. Debug.Print Name #End If Name = "Kerry" End Sub The behavior of the #If...Then...#Else conditional compilation directive is the same as the If...Then...Else statement. However, code that is excluded during conditional compilation is completely omitted from the final executable file; so, using conditional compilation has no size or performance disadvantages
