I think You must save some parametersin list of history. If user select undo You must go to history and back with saved information

To give you some code would be very involving (even if the points were 200).

Would you be satisfied with a "the way to go"?

If you search the registry you'll notice that alot of the undo information is written and extracted form the registry.  You need to come up with a schema to be able to get in out values that you can interpret to actions.

- create an action object that encapsulates ANY operation that can be done in your program
- keep a history list that stores action objects
- After each action, create a new action object with the new document state and set the old action object to the history list

Supose that you are using a TRichEdit.
To get the last action perform by a user in the RichEdit1,
write the following lines in the Button "Undo" OnClick event:

if RichEdit1.HandleAllocated then
   SendMessage(RichEdit1.Handle, EM_UNDO, 0, 0);
