Description atlanx 2006-03-22 00:04:34 UTC
If you try to update for example the entries of a book OO does only save the
last updated entry.

Try this:

1] Make a new dataset for a book with title, publisher, isbn
   Insert -> RecordEinfügen->Datensatz
2] Close the Bibliography Database window.
3] Open the Bibliography Database window.
4] Click on the dataset we have created.
5] Fill all unfilled fields with "x"
 5.1] Do not click somewhere in the table!!!
6] Close the Bibliography Database window.
7] Open the Bibliography Database window.
8] Now the entries Titel, Verlag, isbn should be there and all other are "x".
9] But there are probably only two fields with "x". All other are blank.

I have found a workaround to get OO to work.
After filling out all fields you have to click in the table, where
all datasets are listed, on a different dataset (Not the one with
the green arrow) before closing the window.

The database should remember all entries without this procedure.

If there would be a button with "accept changes" or something else
it would be more clear that the changed data are saved.
Comment 1 christoph.lukasiak 2006-04-24 10:34:18 UTC
if the dataset is not saved, it is not saved - if a writer document is not saved
it is not saved, too

-> you can save about menue, the save button or by clicking in any other roe
(leaving the row) this is standard db (in this case dBase) behavior
Comment 2 christoph.lukasiak 2006-04-24 10:35:44 UTC
clu->atlanx: if you miss a warning message (attention: nothing saved) or a save
dialog etc. please write an feature enhancement

Comment 3 christoph.lukasiak 2006-04-24 13:16:00 UTC
after internal discussion reopen task
Comment 4 christoph.lukasiak 2006-04-24 13:25:16 UTC
clu->fs: as we agreed, the lack of a warning message or save proposal dialog is
a bug

clu->protocol: raise prio because of data loss
Comment 5 Frank Schönheit 2006-04-24 13:27:47 UTC
fs->os: Bibliography is yours

Why should I miss a warning message which tells me that all my updates are not

What I would like is, that if I make Updates in the Bibliography then I would
like that all my Updates are saved and not thrown away.

Sorry, I'm not complete sure what a message from OpenOffice like: "Sorry, I was
not in the mood of saving your input." would help me. ;)

Please tell me what your internal discussion has talked about.

Thank you.

Thank you.
Comment 8 christoph.lukasiak 2006-04-24 13:38:40 UTC
set target
Comment 9 christoph.lukasiak 2006-04-24 13:47:22 UTC
clu->atlanx: a warning message with a save proposal are common (only a hint for
the developer who fix this) - please ignore everything bevore the reopening of
this issue, because it get obsolete in between

Comment 10 Oliver Specht 2006-06-20 13:10:17 UTC
Target adjusted
Comment 11 Oliver Specht 2006-08-16 13:53:14 UTC
->fs: As discussed the problem is yours, again ;-) The FormController needs an
XDispatchProvider interface to be able to call "saveRecord".
Comment 12 Frank Schönheit 2006-08-16 14:22:07 UTC
for the record: No that's not my issue - there already is API to achieve this. I
just volunteered to provide an convinience API for this, which is needed, anyway.
Comment 13 Frank Schönheit 2006-11-22 15:09:04 UTC
since this is non-negligible work to create the dedicated API, I created a
dedicated issue: issue 71860. Once it is fixed and integrated, this one here can
be fixed separately.
Comment 14 atlanx 2007-02-14 08:40:34 UTC
It says in issue 71860:

 "verified the implementations did make it into CWS dba22a"

Will this issue get fixed now? Thank you.

Comment 15 Oliver Specht 2007-02-15 06:50:48 UTC
Target changed to OOo 2.3
Comment 16 atlanx 2007-02-22 15:52:26 UTC
Cool. I'm looking forward to OOo 2.3
Comment 17 Oliver Specht 2007-07-02 13:57:09 UTC
->atlanx: With an m217 I'm trying to reproduce what you described but I cannot.
Everytime I change entries they are still there after I restart the Bibliography
Comment 18 pavel 2007-08-21 10:06:25 UTC
atlanx: can you please re-check in OOG680_m2 or _m1?
Comment 19 pavel 2007-08-24 09:10:26 UTC
