Description bobban 2008-11-23 02:56:44 UTC
When assigning a macro to a control's event, there is a textbox that displays
the path to the macro to use (after it has been assigned using the GUI).  

I am in a situation right now where I have 12 pages with a number of the same
button, and I changed a macro assignment on one.  I was hoping to be able to
copy the and paste the text of the macro's path to all the different instances
of this button, but since it is not editable I cannot.  Instead I must click the
macro assignment button and navigate through my library to correct each button
(much, much slower).  

Of course, if all the implementations of the button were identical, I could just
copy the whole button, but this will not always be the case (they may differ
visually, or have different events enabled etc).

Setting target 3.2 (UI freeze for 3.1 is too close), setting platform "all".

This would indeed be a nice feature and has a number of benefits for QA
Automation as well. Please make sure that the controls are available to the VCL
Testtool. If in doubt please contact PB.

No capacity to realize this in the near future.
This also would require much more effort for
input checking and error handling.

Reset assigne to the default "".
