Description Armin Le Grand 2016-09-30 10:35:22 UTC
Follow-up to Bug 89901. From that task, extract the metafile - it's huge so I will not add it here - open bugdoc, select graphic, save.

- open Draw/Impress
- insert graphic
- in context menu, choose 'Break'
-> short dialog show-up, end of action, no Break executed at all

What should happen: A Dialog is shown that is used when the to-be-broken object has more than 1000 entries. That dialog shows the progress to the user and allows to cancel the action
Comment 1 Armin Le Grand 2016-09-30 10:37:42 UTC
There is one wrong flag in the dialog implementation, probably a code-conversion error. Also the dialog gets no repaints, that can be fixed with tooling from the dialog screenshot work (slightly adapting that)

@Caolan: 50d9f1508709e0849e8ecabfe04ac9281160d9e0 has killed that dialog showing progress again - see tdf#89901 and how to reproduce.


instead of 


is *not* enough in BreakDlg::UpDate (IMPL_LINK( BreakDlg, UpDate, void*, nInit, bool )) to get repaint done - at leat not under Win...

I can't see why we must reopen old bugs when the same sort of problem appears vs opening a new bug, it just leads to chaos

I do agree.
