We study functions $f$ of one complex variable with values in a complete locally convex space $E$. In [13] we had shown that for $f$ to be holomorphic it suffices that it is locally bounded and that there is a separating subset $H$ of $E'$ such that $x'\circ f$ is holomorphic for each functional $x'\in H$. We give here a new and considerably shorter proof of this result, and we extend it to a weak criterion for holomorphic continuability.
