TypeLib Add-In: Intro

Menu Expand/Collapse Menu

When one selects the Tools>References the References dialogue box shows selected & unselected references. Selected are checked & used to resolve references in the VBA code.

There are 2 problems with using the dialogue box:

  1. When a letter is typed, the reference list will jump to that 1st letter in the list. Type a second letter & it jumps to that 1st letter. Pretty dumb implementation given the importance of references. The user is left to scroll around manually after the first letter.
  2. Notice that the location of the reference is truncated. This is particularly dumb because useful information is often in the folder where the typelib is located. Since the dialogue box is NOT expandable, the user is stuck with partial information.
