I'm currently working on a add-in for Word. In the manifest.xml, I have created a element that contains a element with a element of type button. I have an element of xsi: type = ExecuteFunction with a "testEventObject" function as a element. In the FunctionFile I call the commands.html page which contains script with the "testEventObject" method. I have placed an alert and a console.log in the function but when I click on the button, nothing happens. Thank you in advance for your help !

manifest.xml:
