cool, this is this is the real keystone patch, somewhere down the line 
we can think improvements to this e.g. perhaps being able to accept just 
the leaf name ( XFilePicker ) or even ( like vba does ) accept all 
variant of the name e.g. ( dialogs.XFilePicker, ui.dialogs.XFilePicker 
etc. ) but.. anyway I think that is more cosmetic issue that can be 
looked into when we have actually something working

so, any more luck with that ?, probably it is done in basic module ( and 
not the IDE  module ) IIRC I saw where this was done at some point when 
we made the IDE accept run from cursor ( might be you could find it from 
there ) e.g. If you have a number of macros defined in a module and from 
the ide you place the cursor in a macro and press the 'Run' button on 
the toolbar (or press F5) then the IDE will try and invoke the procedure 
the cursor is in is run. I recall that when you are typing basic tracks 
any procedures that are defined ( and the line numbers that the 
procedure occupies )

hmm, that's the not the object inspector but the browser ( that shows 
the modules and procedures ) Its surely related as it displays the 
SbMethod instances that represent the procedures we are interested in. 
Finding where those are created will eventually point to where the 
pre-parsing for that happens
