Some actions have visible results (moving or resizing a component) in design mode and others (adding event listeners and some properties) are not immediately visible. When I type CTRL-Z mutiple times, I often end up undoing things I don't intend to undo. (This is exacerbated by bugs in UNDO, but would still be a problem.) I'm not sure what the best way to visualize these hidden operations. Tomas suggested showing a message in the status bar about the last undone/redone operation. Another possibility would be to do something like Word, where it lists the operation in the menu next to Undo/Redo: i.e. "Undo Typing," "Undo Clear"
