Description pagalmes.lists 2006-08-07 14:25:44 UTC
Absctract :

Adding a feature that allows the developper to know which macro function is
called by which widget(s) (buttons...).

Purpose :

When someone sends you a file containing macros, you can see which modules and
functions he wrote, but you can not easily know where each function is called.
Thus, when the files contains many sheets, you need to go through every sheet
until you find which widget the macro is called. This can also be tricky if the
macro is called when the sheet is opened because no widgets calls it.

Finding which buttons calls which function can represent a huge amount of work
for large sheets. Even worse, if you think that a function is not associated to
any button you can't tell it with certainty.

This would also be useful if it could be done on sheets comming from Office (and
in particular Excel). It would ease migrating MS Office applications. Thus
adding such functionnality could ease the work of debugging/migrating documents
with macro.
