Description gregor.hartmann 2006-08-23 15:21:58 UTC
For automated testing every GUI Element needs a HelpId.
To ease finding unique HelpIDs they should be changed to aplhanumeric IDs and
each UI Element should get an automatic HelpID, as it is done in VCL already.
These should contain the “unique identifiers“ mentioned by Stephan Bergmann, the
name of the Dialog and the name of the UI Element as mentioned in the XML file
describing the Dialog. If necessary for uniqueness the type of the UI Element
might also be included (as in VCL)

Comment 4 ab 2006-08-25 07:36:18 UTC
STARTED, Target Milestone OOo 2.0.4 is surely unrealistic.
Set to OOo 2.x for now.
Comment 5 gregor.hartmann 2006-08-25 10:10:17 UTC
set target to 2.1 since we need it asap
Comment 6 ab 2006-09-05 14:19:16 UTC
ab->gh: Sorry, but the discription is far too unclear. If I remember correctly
from our discussion the changes in Basic and concerning the DialogProvider
should be based on a new functionality provided by the AWT dialog API.
There has to be a separate task for this (-> CD who now is responsible for
the toolkit). Based on the new AWT functionality it has to be specified what
exactly has to be done in the scope of this task. -> back to you for now
Comment 7 gregor.hartmann 2006-09-13 14:42:47 UTC
assigned to abi as he wants to implemet a solution for this
Comment 8 andreas.bille 2006-09-18 14:15:54 UTC
accepted, but the solution might be different ...
Comment 9 kai.sommerfeld 2006-10-20 08:29:43 UTC
We missed the fature freeze deadline for 2.1 => 2.2
Comment 10 andreas.bille 2007-01-15 10:46:23 UTC
Correlating dialog and help will not be done in 2.2 timeframe
Comment 11 andreas.bille 2007-01-19 15:02:33 UTC
Comment 12 andreas.bille 2007-04-04 14:31:10 UTC
ABI->AB: As discussed ...
Comment 13 ab 2007-04-19 12:32:55 UTC
Comment 14 ab 2007-06-20 08:49:37 UTC
ab->gh: Needs to be discussed again. I still don't understand, what / how
should be done here. Is there any description or concept? Seems to be 
unrealistic for 2.3 anyway due to missing resources, -> 2.4 for now
Comment 15 ab 2007-11-14 13:43:07 UTC
Not UI relevant, it has to be discussed if this should be done at all / for 2.4 and
how this impacts the general help handling (e.g. fallback to parent window)
Comment 16 ab 2008-01-25 08:34:36 UTC
-> 3.x
Comment 17 Marcus 2017-05-20 11:31:36 UTC
Reset assigne to the default "".
