Description guerpi 2010-07-21 15:15:04 UTC
Note: I'm using the french version of OOo 3.2
When creating a formular and editing a listbox control,you will easily try to
fill the "list content" field in the "DATA" tab, and it won't work, because
that's the "list content" field in the "GENERAL" tab that must be filled.
This duplicate field could be a source of failure and frustration for a beginner
who simply wants to create a simple static listbox. (spent three hours to find
the issue...)

Finally, someone on the French Forum explained to me the utility of this field
(reference values)
However, I still think that it could mislead a beginner like it did for me.
Maybe should this field's label be more explicit, anyway different that the
field in the "general" tab .

I can confirm that this can confuse the user. I reassign this to the
requirements Team for evaluating.
