Description joerg.skottke 2005-04-21 12:32:20 UTC
How to get there:
- new document
- save with password
- close
- open document
- enter incorrect password
-> msgbox comes up with a text like "A wrong password was entered..."

This box should be more specific and using "..." in a messagebox is not acceptable.

Better: Provide a "real" dialog (with own HID) and some more explanation.
Reason for own HID: It is simpler to handle by automated testing than working
with an unspecified dialog that identifies as an "active messagebox".

More precisely the warning reads:

"Read error.
A wrong password has been entered..."
Comment 2 joerg.skottke 2005-04-21 12:54:45 UTC
setting 2.0.1, since we like security in this release, we want to make it good,
won't we?

The exact message that appears in my 680 m92 is as follows:

The wrong password has been entered..

Liz->Liz: aside from the silly double period at the end, the message is
grammatically correct. BTW, a completely new dialog would a feature and not a
string bug. 

In the LT database I can only find the string with one periods at the end:
KeyId          229780
Language       German
PRJ            svtools
Filename       source\misc\errtxt.src
Build          SRC680
GID            RID_ERRHDL
Type           string

MBA says that the second period must be added at runtime, because many of the
strings in the same file do not have periods (in German mostly, which was the
source language when these strings were created).

As the string style dictates that the punctuation must be in the resource
string, not hard-coded, this whole file must be reviewed. 

It is better to have NO period than TWO periods, so please remove the hard-coded
period. That will make English correct again. Please also research and delete
any strings from this file that are not used anymore. MBA suggested this.

Ok, the period does not appear any more.
As for the new dialog feature, I must confess I do not understand which
additional information does user need except the message that the provided
password is wrong. Or do we need this change only for automatic testing?

Since it is now more about new dialog feature I change the summary accordingly.

Reset assigne to the default "".
