Public Function IsIDE() As Boolean
    On Error GoTo ErrHandler
    'because debug statements are ignored when
    'the app is compiled, the next statment will
    'never be executed in the EXE.
    Debug.Print 1 / 0
    IsIDE = False
Exit Function
ErrHandler:
    'If we get an error then we are
    'running in IDE / Debug mode
    IsIDE = True
End Function

ok... it is orait then to detect whether the program is running in ide or not

but may be i should clearify it...

i have made the dll using visual basic, the main objective of the dll is to detect whether the program calling him is running in ide or not.

This will show if VB is running.


Private Declare Function FindWindow Lib "user32" Alias "FindWindowA" (ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal lpWindowName As String) As Long

Private Sub Command1_Click()
If VBRunning Then
 MsgBox ("yes")
Else
MsgBox ("Nope")
End If
End Sub

Function VBRunning() As Boolean
If FindWindow("IDEOwner", "") = 0 Then
 VBRunning = True
Else
VBRunning = False
End If
End Function





Good luck!!
