Description Olivier Hallot 2020-06-20 19:32:45 UTC
The Help button of the Database wizard dialog send to the wrong Help page (actually the default Help page for pages not found for the module).

1) File > New > database (wizard opens)
2) Click help button

The HID sent to the Help subsystem is "swriter/vcl/ui/wizard/Wizard". This HID does not exist in any page (suspicious to be a generic wizard ui dialog).

The HID to send to Help subsytem depends on the current page of the wizard. Page 2 of the wizard depends on the database connector selected in page 1. For example, if the connector is JDBC, the Help page for JDBC should open when clicking on Help button.

This bug has similarities with bug#129068

Reproduced in

Build ID: 00be56d9db396d284f66ab723d6fbb898b888dfb
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.19; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8); UI: en-US
Calc: threaded

in previous versions it opens the writer main page.

@Olivier, what should be the correct page to open ?

Probably this should open:
