Description audionuma 2006-06-07 07:03:10 UTC
Description :
When working with a Base document, the 'windows' menu doesn't show all open windows

Step by step :
- open or create a Base document (myDocument.odb)
- the 'windows' menu displays the document window (myDocument - base)
- open a new Base window by double-clicking on a Table, a Form or a Query.
- now, there are two open windows but the 'windows' menu only displays the main Base window.

Screen Captures is a screen capture made under OOo 2.0.3rc5 that shows 
the problem. is a screen capture made under OOo 2.0.1 stable that 
shows a correct handling of the opened windows

Platform/version :
this defect has been reproduced with OOo 2.0.3rc5, French version, under MacOS X.3.9, MacOS X.4.6, 
Mandriva 2006

due to the fact that i do not have a mac to repro, can anybody else repro this

Comment 2 audionuma 2006-06-07 10:12:36 UTC
it has been reproduced by at least 1 other MacUser and 1 mandriva user (both of 
them with 2.0.3rc5 / French localization)

The window menu currently only shows top-level documents, not dependent
documents (such as database tables/queries/forms/reports).

I experienced a similar problem with OOo 2.3.0 (German) on Linux (SuSE 10.1).
My steps:
1. I created a database file .odb which gives me access to a .xls file and 
registered that database (in Extras (?) - Options - OOo Base)
2. I created a macro which accesses the database using:
'  DatabaseContext = createUnoService("")
'  DataSource = DatabaseContext.getByName(mydbs)
'  Connection = DataSource.GetConnection("","")
'  ecc. 
and inserts some information into a writer document.
3. After restarting of OOo Writer, opening a Writer document, calling that 
macro and opening some other Writer documents I get this effect:
a) My KDE task list shows (among other OOo windows) an OOo calc running with 
my database opened in readonly mode
b) Calling that OOo calc window shows just an empty window frame (i.e. its 
contents consists of the pixels which have been on the same place before)
c) The menu list of OOo writer does show the all windows but that OOo calc
d) switching to other windows using that menu list often opens the wrong OO 
window or shows the effect described in b)
