    Increase number of undos in VBIDE for VBA7.dll

    Hi,

    I found this link on your site: https://www.vbforums.com/showthread....467&viewfull=1
    refer to post #23: https://www.vbforums.com/showthread....=1#post5473467 for the patch info

    was wondering if this could be updated to the latest version (i have office 365 installed), vba7.dll.

    i downloaded the hex editor (the one mentioned in the post) and did a search for the hex string but did not find it.

    can someone assist on this? would be VERY useful to have unlimited undo/redo for the current VBA.dll version.

    thanks

    dan

    Assuming that the VBA .dll file is similar, you would need to locate the correct places to patch it. That might require some additional research.

    not sure if i can do this. don't have the proper tools to edit. was hoping someone who actually found the hex location to do the same for VBA7. lmk if this can't be done. but would be immensely useful if this could happen.

    Re: Increase number of undos in VBIDE for VBA7.dll

    Also, from what I have seen, the actual .dll file for VBA may be vbe7.dll

    A Google search for "disassemble vbe7.dll" might return some useful links to help in locating where to patch it.

    Re: Increase number of undos in VBIDE for VBA7.dll

    After doing the search, I found these two links:
    https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...ZwrtBUy2MBefMq
    and this:
    https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...GxIJ2JcQWORuNs

    both articles are beyond my current experience, is that something someone could assist me in? I'm willing to put in the effort though.

    and let me add that the reason this is so important to me is I recently got a cat. she likes to walk on the keyboard while I am typing. Has actually damaged code cause i ran out of undo's. don't know how to program a cat, lol

    feed it
    i do my best to test code works before i post it, but sometimes am unable to do so for some reason, and usually say so if this is the case.
    Note code snippets posted are just that and do not include error handling that is required in real world applications, but avoid On Error Resume Next

    dim all variables as required as often i have done so elsewhere in my code but only posted the relevant part

    come back and mark your original post as resolved if your problem is fixed

    Feed the cat..

    Trying to hack an application because you have a cat walking on your keyboard is quite .. strange.
    If I had a cat this would happen only once.
