I debugging with IDA, and I want to see/print all the functions that get called.

In the functions window I see over than 1000 functions.

So I want to see which functions are called when I press enter or press on buttons and actions like that.

I use IDA, but if I can do it with another debugger, that's also okay.


Usually, debuggers (IDA included) provide tracing functionality. This is logging debugee's actions at a predefined granularity level. That could be logging all individual instructions, or as you desire, function calls. Using function tracing (Debugger -> Tracing -> Function Tracing) a user is able to view all functions called throughout the tracing duration. Keep in mind this may generate a big trace, and logging it to a file may be recommended.
