Description Uwe Fischer 2005-09-12 12:40:00 UTC
If the dialog Tools - Options opens, the focus is currently set to the left side
(the navigation pane?). Unfortunately, this means if the user presses F1 or
clicks the Help button, that there will be no help for the page visible at the
right, but only a main help page for all the dialog. This is not what most users
Comment 1 Uwe Fischer 2006-09-15 08:10:09 UTC
A good solution would be to have a dialog help ID. Unfortunately, our tools do
not indicate or show any dialog help IDs, only control help IDs.
ufi->pb: can you provide a method to display dialog help IDs in addition to the
existing method with HELP_DEBUG ?
Comment 2 Uwe Fischer 2007-01-09 12:24:11 UTC
There is a possibility that the QA testtool can display such IDs. The testtool
however demands major changes of work environment in order to run. This is much
more effort than I can afford now. So lets close this as WONTFIX.
Comment 3 pb 2007-01-10 07:38:59 UTC
pb: WONTFIX (see last comment from Uwe).
Comment 4 pb 2007-01-10 07:39:46 UTC
pb: and closed.
Comment 5 Uwe Fischer 2009-03-11 10:32:00 UTC
Well, don't really know why we closed this issue, as the problem still exists.
Comment 6 Uwe Fischer 2009-07-23 12:14:51 UTC
We see the same problem in the Edit - Links dialog. Here the Close button has
the focus, and it has no Help ID. Users must click any other control first, then
click Help button, to get the correct Help page shown.
May be there is a dialog ID, but I have no tool to catch that dialog ID (if it
exists at all)
