Description Frank Schönheit 2005-03-22 07:26:16 UTC
- open any database document (e.g. the pre-installed database)
- Tools|SQL
- in the upper edit field, try to enter a a character which requires to use the
Alt-Gr key
  (e.g. a \ on a german keyboard)
=> doesn't work. Alt-Gr seems to be completely broken

Other places where this happens:
- Query SQL design for a database document
- Basic editor
Comment 1 Frank Schönheit 2005-03-22 07:30:29 UTC
Meant to submit this as P2 (I claim that this is "basic functionality lost" is
true for at least the Basic IDE).

This used to work in 680m84, it doesn't work in 680m86 and 680m87.

Perhaps related to issue 45069, which describes the same bug in Writer (which
let's me assume that it's a GSL issue with changed keycode modifiers, or
something like this).

Does happen on WinXP, but not on Linux.
Comment 2 Frank Schönheit 2005-03-22 07:37:14 UTC
seems to be a regression of the fix for issue 40219, done by OS, in
Comment 3 christof.pintaske 2005-03-22 08:51:00 UTC
cp->ssa: os is on vacation, could you have a look and at least verify that this
is not a gsl issue. I'd like to avoid playing too much ping pong right now.
Comment 4 Frank Schönheit 2005-03-22 08:58:16 UTC
I appreciate that this is not a gsl issue, however, given that some of the
involved issues (this one here and issue 40219, at least), are platform
dependent, I assume that you GSL guys have the expertise to at least tell how a
solution would look like :).

I find it suspicious that AltGr is mapped to different modifier codes in a
KeyCode object, depending on the platform ....

Seems that the same 'fix' that went into writer was also applied to the
textengine. I'll have a look.
Comment 6 stephan_schaefer 2005-03-22 12:28:31 UTC
The problem was that Ctrl and Alt were checked simultaneously and the key input
was rejected if one or *both* of them were pressed. However, AltGr is the same
as pressing Alt and Ctrl together, which effectively disabled all
