B.Marcelly's "Programmation (Open/Libre)Office.." french book mentions two features I fear may be missing in Online/local help ..
1. Simulating tabbed dialog boxes using the Page/Step property of a dialog
2. Localising/Xlating UI messages to end-user (e.g. MsgBox Print..) using hidden controls/dialogs
Note: <Access2Base>L10N> module exhibits an alternative to:
- current dialogs localisation help page
- the above feature #2
that are worth mentioning/documenting
User Profile Reset: No
About feature #1
Dialogs do not propose "tabs UX". "Page (step)" property allows to mimic such similarly to a wizard UI that guide the end-user thru a stepped process.
Dialogs (Model.Step) and controls all have that "Page(step)" property. Controls can be hidden are shown according to dialogs Step value:
o Controls with Step=0 are always shown
o When dialog Step=zero all controls are shown
o When dialog Step equals n, all controls with step=n and controls with Step=0 are visible.
Some resources beloe that'll assist update help content for feature #1.
