Description robert.kinsella 2003-10-28 16:04:30 UTC 1.1rc5 on Solaris sparc.

Create a simple macro e.g.msgbox "test macro"

Open a text document, from the main toolbar select form functions.
Add a push button to the document, on the button select controls and assign the
macro to Events, Mouse moved while key pressed.
Close the button properties dialog and switch the design mode off.
Select the push button
Move the mouse while selecting a text key
BUG the macro does not execute.

If user moves mouse while selecting the shift or ctrl or alt keys the macro does
execute. I'm not sure if it is suppose to operate in this fashion. If it is the
help documentation should specify this, currently it reads
"The Mouse moved while key pressed event takes place when the mouse is dragged
while a key is pressed at the same time. An example is when, during
drag-and-drop, an additional key determines the mode (move or copy)."

Comment 3 joerg.skottke 2003-12-12 09:02:10 UTC
According to the OOo PCD i set this Bug/Enhancement to OOo Later
Later because: I think it should only work for CTRL / SHIFT / ALT
However: This is an inconsistency and should be resolved.

JSK->TBE: What is your opinion? Wrong description text or incomplete feature?
Comment 4 thomas.benisch 2003-12-12 10:25:23 UTC
No idea, if this is a bug or feature.
MT should comment on this.
Comment 5 thomas.benisch 2003-12-12 10:54:17 UTC
According to MT the event should only be fired, if a mouse button (!!!) is pressed
and the mouse is moved. With this semantics it's a bug, that the event is
fired when the CTRL, SHIFT or ALT key is pressed.
Comment 6 thomas.benisch 2003-12-15 10:23:30 UTC
User Experience should evaluate, if the UI text should be changed from
'Mouse moved while key pressed' to 'Mouse moved while mouse button pressed'.

TBE->AB: As discussed to you.
