Things to Know about Objects
Figure 7-15: The Object Browser is a great reference source.
After you select a library, you can search for a particular text string to get a list of properties and
methods that contain the text. You do so by entering the text in the second drop-down list and
then clicking the binoculars (Search) icon. For example, assume that you’re working on a project
that manipulates cell comments:
Select the library of interest.
If you’re not sure which object library is appropriate, you can select <All Libraries>.
Enter Comment in the drop-down list below the library list.
Click the binoculars icon to begin the text search.
The Search Results window displays the matching text. Select an object to display its classes in
the Classes window. Select a class to display its members (properties, methods, and constants).
Pay attention to the bottom pane, which shows more information about the object. You can
press F1 to go directly to the appropriate help topic.
The Object Browser may seem complex at first, but its usefulness to you will increase over time.
