Description pokusn 2010-01-10 09:59:34 UTC
I have inserted and selected picture in OO Writer. I open Picture dialog
(menu->format->picture) and select he tab Macro. The I will get a lot of
(exactly 16) error messages with title "Required JRE" and text " requires
Java runtime environment. Please install JRE and run OO again."

I have not installed Java, so error message is right at this place. But I expect
only one error message, not 16!

Whem I go to options->Java and uncheck "Use Java runtime environment" and then
again do the same with the picture, I get a lot of simillar error messages: "JRE
is not enabled. Do you want to enable it?"

@JSK: similar to issue 80878.
- Tools - Options - Java - Use a Java Runtime environnement -> OFF
- In Writer
- Insert a picture
- go to Format - Picture - Macro
-> you get 16 Warnings about missing Java.
As the dialog contains "Enable Java Now [Yes][No][Cancel]" one can expect one of
the button [No] or [Cancel] to act like "never ask again".

Hence: need a redesign of the warning.

In a perfect world...: every function requiring Java while Java has been
disabled using "never ask again" should be disabled itself (grayed out) and show
a warning (tooltip) telling the user how to enable this function again.

As this is a general mis-behavior of the Java warning (ex.: same question again
and again on File - Wizard -...) I set OF on CC.
