Comment 3 Julien Nabet 2017-10-02 20:20:53 UTC
noticing there was a StartListening in SdrMarkView constructor, I tried to add one in destructor too:

No better.

Then, I just commented the line in ReportSection.cxx:

     m_pView->SetWorkArea( tools::Rectangle( Point( nLeftMargin, 0), Size(aPageSize.Width() - nLeftMargin - nRightMargin,aPageSize.Height()) ) );

and finally got report wizard/design opened.

Since I don't know how these things work (even after having read the comments of your quoted commit), I haven't submitted them in gerrit.
Comment 4 Julien Nabet 2017-10-02 20:26:49 UTC
Taking a look to OReportSection::fill(), I noticed this:
m_pModel = m_pParent->getViewsWindow()->getView()->getReportView()->getController().getSdrModel();
(see https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/reportdesign/source/ui/report/ReportSection.cxx#185)
but controller already uses StartListening:
   1737 bool OReportController::Construct(vcl::Window* pParent)
   1738 {
   1739     VclPtrInstance<ODesignView> pMyOwnView( pParent, m_xContext, *this );
   1740     StartListening( *pMyOwnView );
   1741     setView( pMyOwnView );
   1743     // now that we have a view we can create the clipboard listener
   1744     m_aSystemClipboard = TransferableDataHelper::CreateFromSystemClipboard( getView() );
   1745     m_aSystemClipboard.StartClipboardListening( );
   1746     m_pClipboardNotifier = new TransferableClipboardListener( LINK( this, OReportController, OnClipboardChanged ) );
   1747     m_pClipboardNotifier->AddListener( getView() );
   1749     OReportController_BASE::Construct(pParent);
   1750     return true;
   1751 }
(see https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/reportdesign/source/ui/report/ReportController.cxx#1737)
Comment 5 Julien Nabet 2017-10-02 20:41:21 UTC
grepping call to StartListening in reportdesign and compare with EndListening, I noticed this too:
    117 OXUndoEnvironment::OXUndoEnvironment(OReportModel& _rModel)
    118                    :m_pImpl(new OXUndoEnvironmentImpl(_rModel) )
    119 {
    120     StartListening(m_pImpl->m_rModel);
    121 }
    124 OXUndoEnvironment::~OXUndoEnvironment()
    125 {
    126 }
(see https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/reportdesign/source/core/sdr/UndoEnv.cxx#117)
shouldn't we add EndListening in destructor (to have a symetric behavior)?
Comment 6 Julien Nabet 2017-10-02 20:46:06 UTC
Forget my comment about removing too StartListening in ReportController my test was wrong, I can still select a table for the report
Comment 7 Commit Notification 2017-10-03 12:05:24 UTC
Noel Grandin committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":


tdf#112848 Assert when clicking on report wizard or design view

It will be available in 6.0.0.

The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:

Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
Comment 8 Julien Nabet 2017-10-03 13:12:05 UTC
Noel: since it's an assert only, I suppose we won't backport it to 5.4 branch.
So let's put this one to FIXED.
Comment 9 Julien Nabet 2017-10-03 13:12:46 UTC
Verified since the patch corresponds to what I had suggested and so tested locally.
