Screenshot of VB Friend indentation options dialog box Straighten the spaghetti code. Add readability to your code by consistent indentation. VB Friends takes your rules to indent your code with your very own style.

Add missing variables. Tired of defining variables? Add "Option Explicit" and let VB Friend do the rest. Every time VB finds a new, undefined variable, VB Friend pops up asking for proper declaration.

Screenshot of VB Friend macro definitions Auto-correct. Upgrade your Visual Basic editor with speedy macros. Type "scc" and get a full "Select Case..Case..Case Else..End Select". Type "ite" and get a full "If..Then..Else..End If" ready to fill in! Fully customizable for all single and multiline code snippets.

Type less. Let VB Friend complete any missing End If, End Select or Next MyVar statements.

Get more screen space. VB Friend hides VB toolbars automatically when you don't need them. To show them, just move your mouse to where the toolbar was.

Get rid of "syntax error". Each time VB finds a syntax error it will show you an annoying message box. If you don't need those trivial messages, let VB Friend hit OK for you.

Quick backup. Backup your project to a .zip file. Make sure you always have working source code and enough interim copies while you work.

And more features. Quickly navigate backward and forward in your code and forms. Close all code and form windows instantly. Use Bracket Helper to determine which ")" is missing. Drag code to/from Temporary window to move it from place to place. Auto-clear the Debug window. Add 10 extra clipboards that persist between coding sessions and you get an idea of what to expect.
