Description Dietmar 2011-02-13 02:31:04 UTC
There is a bug when using the Frame (de: "Umrandung") drop down menu from the "Format" menu in calc.

Select a group of cells (e.g. 3x5).
Select e.g. the left side border in the "Umrandung" menu.
Nothing is drawn.

It works only if you draw an entire square around the cells.

Can you pls explain which menu entry you mean exactly?
There is no border (Umdandung) or something like that in the menu Format.
thanks - Cor

I thought it was difficult to explain, so here is the screen shot. The mousepointer points to the drop down menu.

This bug is LibO specific. It works fine in OOo 3.3

Thanks Dietmar.
This is not the 'Menu' but the Formatting Tool bar 
Never mind ;-)

It definitely works OK in LO 3.3.0. I tried that menu already before.
I haven't installed 3.3.1 yet. So cannot confirm.
Comment 5 Dietmar 2011-02-13 09:53:41 UTC
I checked in Debian Squeeze (Go-oo) Openoffice.org 3.2.1, where it also works.
So the bug could have been introduced with fixing the borderline issue in the api.

Please someone countercheck with 3.3.1.

Comment 6 vitriol 2011-02-13 09:58:24 UTC
It works in LibO 3.3.= final. Broken in 3.3.1 RC1
Comment 7 vitriol 2011-02-13 10:02:00 UTC
I have nominate it as stopper for 3.3.1
Comment 8 Michael Meeks 2011-02-14 02:00:43 UTC
Kohei / Cedric - any thoughts ? :-) it'd be nice to have a fix today if possible.
Comment 9 Kohei Yoshida 2011-02-14 05:56:13 UTC
When I set the border from the cell format dialog it works fine.  But setting a single border from the pop-up is utterly broken.
Comment 10 Cédric Bosdonnat 2011-02-14 06:34:42 UTC
Taking it: borders are my area
Comment 11 Cédric Bosdonnat 2011-02-15 02:08:14 UTC
Fixed in master branch by this commit:

Review requested for 3.3 and 3.3.1 branches.
Comment 12 Cédric Bosdonnat 2011-02-15 02:22:02 UTC
To help the review process, the fixed commit is the following one:
Comment 13 Michael Meeks 2011-02-15 02:24:45 UTC
Approved for libreoffice-3-3 and 3.3.1 - the original code change (which contains the error) ie. we should only be bailing out on failed co-ercion from the Any, not if the border is not set ;-) which this code changes fixes is:


Thanks Cedric ! :-)

Looks sane, go for it IMO.
Comment 15 David Tardon 2011-02-15 03:26:40 UTC
I think I did it that way originally, then "optimized" it ;) I see the problem now. +1 for 3-3-1 .
