     To judge from some recent submissions, some people forget their variables!
This is my take on how to avoid this, by making an IDE addin that shows a list of your private variables when you press a hotkey (Ctrl+m).
It's not perfect, but it could be a good starting point for other IDE enhancements, if anyone's interested :)

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

Are you saying they're posting code without Option Explicit? I've always wondered what would have happened if Microsoft had a v7.0 which didn't require Option Explicit but would simply stop with something like, "Error: Missing " and simply refuse to go any further until it's corrected. I'm sure it would freak some people out who have no clue as to what "Option Explicit" is for or why you should have to declare variables, "But the code runs!"
