me.undo

I have a control on a form entitled Undo Changes. This control is disabled until this event is fired:

Private Sub Form_Dirty(Cancel As Integer)
    Me.cmdUndo.Enabled = True
End Sub

The cmd button executes the following code:
me.undo
After executing this code, the cmd button should be disabled once again.

Where do I put this code?
Me.cmdUndo.Enabled = True

Why disabling this control?

I normally code an [Undo] button like:

If me.dirty then
   me.undo
endif

and have it always enabled.
The user will know when he "screw up" the form...

True. But in most applications, the behavior is undo button disabled until one has changed the doc. If one hits undo, the doc is cleaned and the undo button is again disabled. Trying to mimick this behavior but can not see how.

but to answer your question:

The cmd button executes the following code:
me.undo
Me!cmdUndo.Enabled=False  

'***You might have to set focus back to the form and then
'to the control as well as move the focus to another
'control.


After executing this code, the cmd button should be disabled once again.

Where do I put this code?
Me.cmdUndo.Enabled = True
