Description 2008-02-07 10:20:47 UTC
To reproduce follow these steps:
- create a new chart (e.g. in Calc)
- enter edit mode
- select a chart element
- press F4 and note that nothing happens
- click outside the chart and thus leave the edit mode
- the data source dock window pops up

Appearently the underlying module (calc) receives the F4 keystroke but executes
"show data sources" once chart edit mode has been left.

I cannot reproduce this with OOH680.m6 on Linux. Which object did you select? On
some objects F4 opens the dialog, does it happen for all other objects?

(I checked with KDE on a kubuntu.)

Ok, now I can reproduce the behavior: Go to Tools/Customize, remove the F4
accelerator. Then press F4 with a selected object -> nothing happens, leave
inplace-mode => the data source window pops up.

This also happens with a Draw OLE with disabled F4 accelerator.

Well, it is a bit unusual, but in principle the rule is: pass all unknown keys
to the container application. Otherwise Ctrl-P for printing or Ctrl-Q for
exiting the application would not work. And as the OLE object has the UI control
at the moment, the effect of the opened dialog is not immediately visible. So,
from a technical standpoint the behavior is ok. The question is, if we could
change something here to get a better behavior from a user's perspective.

If we would explicitly not pass F4 to the container, a user could have
configured to open the data source window with F5, F6, or whatever, so that's no

Sounds like an general OLE issue.
@mav: pls have a look.

Reset assigne to the default "".
