Programmatically Differentiate Between Design Mode and Run Time

This code enables and/or disables functions during design and testing. The code can remain during initial deployment without affecting the end user. Make sure the path string being searched is part of your project path and is not in your final application's directory:

 
If InStr(App.Path, "VB") Then
        ' Set Test Locations
        ' Modify Settings without changing 
        ' ini or registry settings
        ' Defeat security
        ' Set options
End If

'A simple variant of this technique is

If InStr(App.Path, "VB") Then Stop




You can insert this during debugging, but if you forget, it won't cause users problems.
