Description joaniediggs 2009-08-24 18:14:55 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

1. Launch Accerciser and Writer
2. Turn event monitoring on in Accerciser
3. Move focus inside any of the following combo boxes on the Formatting toolbar:
   a. Apply Style
   b. Font name
   c. Font size
4. Use Left/Right Arrow to move the caret

Expected results: An object:text-selection-changed event would not be emitted
because there is no text selection change taking place.

Actual results: Each time Left/Right Arrow is pressed, an
object:text-selection-changed event is emitted.

Impact: Orca has to trust that object:text-selection-changed events are emitted
when the text selection changes -- and not emitted when the text selection has
not changed. As a result, these extraneous events cause Orca to examine the
accessible text object, see that nothing is selected, and say "unselected" for
each and every press of Left/Right Arrow.

joaniediggs->es Using OOo dev 3.3 m76 in OpenSolaris (build 134), I can verify
the fix for Font Name and Font Size. But I'm still seeing the bug for Apply Style.

When you have the opportunity, could you please take another look? Thanks!

@Joanie: I re-cecked with a m77 (integration in said to be m76) on Solaris Sparc
with Accerciser 1.8.0.

Cannot confirm a fixed but failed.

What I did (this applies for "Apply style", "Font size" and "Font name"):
- click in or travel to (keyboard) the "Apply style" drop down listbox
-> object:text-selection-changed events emitted because the style name is
selected -> ok
- up/down with the keyboard
-> object:text-selection-changed events emitted because the style name in the
selection is changing  -> ok
- 1 time Right or Left with the keyboard
-> object:text-selection-changed events emitted because the style name is
de-selected  -> ok

The current fix:
- Further time Right or Left with the keyboard
-> NO object:text-selection-changed events emitted because nothing is
selected/de-selected -> ok

Do you see something else (so it doesn't work for you) or we don't *talk* about
the same things?

@es Well, *now*, I'm not seeing the issue. Huh. I'm glad I didn't reopen this
bug. It's one thing to annoy; it's another to annoy AND be wrong. ;-)

Having said that, I was definitely seeing the problem and it was definitely with
m76. Once I figure out what it was I did to trigger it, I'll open a new bug.

Thanks much for taking the time to re-verify!
