Description psolanti 2005-07-14 11:12:28 UTC
Inserting hyperlink using push button does not add the HREF statement into the
html code. In the Insert hyperlink window the "button" is not active, unless you
switch the target a couple of times. When it finally accepts the button, it
doesn't generate the HREF statement in the html code. In WinXP there is a
workaround to create first the text link and change it to button. In Linux tehre
is no way to get the buttons to work.

Reassigned to ES.

I couldn't reproduce what you describe.
Especially, there is no defference between Windows and Linux.

Please describe step by step what you do, get and expect.

Please, keep in mind:
- Concerning the problem(s):
1) Push buttons, in HTML, are part of a FORM which uses a VALUE attribute, not
an A HREF tag
2) to be active in OOo, a form must be in active mode, not in design mode (default)

- Concerning the bug handling:
1) 1 problem = 1 issue. We cannot accept multiple problems issues.
2) We have no ressources to maintain the HTML module, so that we only can handle
crashes and huge regressions.
3) please always use the latest developper build to report bugs. OOo 2 Beta is
too old.

Comment 4 psolanti 2005-07-14 14:41:51 UTC
I am using 1.9.113. Sorry for the confusion.

I created a small test example, which I attached to thi issue. I opened a new
html document, wrote some text and inserted a hyperlink URL with button. The
pushbutton appears in the document, but if I open the file with firefox, the
pushbutton doesn't cause any action.

I'll open another issue for the menu problem.

ES->AMA: to work correctly, the insertion of an hyperlink Pushbutton should add
onClick="self.location.href='<complete_url>' to the code.

This is still happening in RC2! Here are steps to recreate:
insert hyperlink for target put any address ( to form
click down arrow and choose button type in Text the text for the button (Open
Office) and in Name give the button a name (opennofficebutton) click apply and
then click close.Click file save as html give a name (test.html)click save.(Get
warning about formatting Why? therre is nothing in here that HTML can not handle!)
Click yes  and open test.html. See button is there but does hyperlink to! See actual HTML generated below.
