Description miles 2010-07-09 10:17:44 UTC
Using Pavel's OOO330m0 Slovenian build for OS X with current Slovenian SDF file
- 100% localized - and an English word (Find) appears grayed-out in the new Find
bar in Writer.

I checked the po files and all appearances of "Find" are translated as "Najdi",
so this should mean it is not localizable, which would be a showstopper for 3.3.

Since OOO330m0 is not on the list of versions I set it to "current".

Thanks, m.

@SBA: please have a look.
For sure it's not translated yet.
Comment 2 stefan.baltzer 2010-07-12 13:09:16 UTC
SBA->CD: Please proceed.
Comment 3 carsten.driesner 2010-07-12 13:24:01 UTC
cd->wuy: Please take over. Did you forget to use a resource entry for the text?
Hard-coded strings are clearly forbidden as they cannot be localized.
Comment 4 carsten.driesner 2010-07-12 13:35:47 UTC
cd->wuy: Please fix the following code in
svx/tbxctrls/tbunosearchcontrollers.cxx which violates the coding standards of
OOo. Text must be translatable and therefore placed in resource files!

void FindTextFieldControl::InitControls_Impl()
    SetText( String( ::rtl::OUString::createFromAscii("Find") ) );
Comment 5 stefan.baltzer 2010-07-12 14:07:29 UTC
Set target OOo 3.3.

What about "Find & Replace" button name visible when one try to add this button 
to new Find toolbar? What is the ID of this message or this also left out as hard 
coded string?

Anyone with File > Properties? Both the "find" issue and others are quite
noticeable, so I want to prevent any bad publicity...
Comment 13 miles 2010-07-26 18:54:35 UTC
olavd, I can also see it in the ooo330l10n Slovenian build: File - Properties,
then Security tab.
The funny thing is that the first line of that non-localizable text even exists
in the sdf (cui\source\dialogs.po) as "Note: After a password has been set, the
document will only open with ", without the rest of the text. It was localized
in the Slovenian sdf but in the build it is in English, and much longer, of course.

However, this should be filed as another issue.

note: just filed issue 113440 for the file - properties - security problem.

Please remember the rule: one problem per issue

Thanks for the reminder, but the frustration kicks in when deadlines are getting
closer and things still fail. ;-)
Comment 16 odahlum 2010-07-27 01:48:03 UTC
Will the templates be updated?
