Description Mátyás Jani 2017-11-12 23:58:51 UTC
I have a dialog with a Label field element.
The dialog editor lists a property named "Label" under the General tab for this element.
If I set the "Label" property in the dialog editor, it works as expected (sets the text of the label on the form).
If I try to set the "Label" property with a macro, it fails with an error.

The macro works as expected using the "Text" property instead of "Label" property (see Additional Information), so it is likely just a naming/UI issue.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a dialog with a "Label field" named "MyLabel"
2. Create a macro accessing its "Label" property

	dialog = CreateUnoDialog(DialogLibraries.Standard.MyDialog)
	myLabel = dialog.GetControl("MyLabel")
	myLabel.Label = "some text"

3. Run the macro

Actual Results:  
Error message:
	BASIC runtime error.
	Property or method not found: Label.

Expected Results:
The dialog pops up with the label "some text"

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
The following macro code works:
	myLabel.Text = "some text"

property list of the Label

In this property list, the property name for the caption of the label is "Label" (red ellipse). It is not possibleto access this "Label" property from a basic macro:

labelName.Label -> "BASIC runtime error. Property or method not found: Label."
labelName.Text -> works, sets the caption of the label

You can test it in MacroTest.ods.

Dear Mátyás Jani,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
