tabstop of tablecontrol with default: "no" - wont work

In one form I have some textfields and a tablecontrol. Tabstop of the tablecontrol is set to "no" by default. But when I go through the form with the tabulator the first field of the tablecontrol gets the tabstop after the last field of the other formcontrols.
You could not set the tabstops in the fileds of a tablecontrol - there is no possibility. But the tabstop of the whole tablecontrol will only work correctly, when you first set it to "yes" and then set it to "no". There is something wrong with the suggested default-value of the tabstop.

I tried to reproduce the steps. But I could not do this.
Please describe exactly the single steps. Is it possible that you create screenshots?

Shows where to find the tabstop of tablecontrols, when editing forms.

You have to download attachment 63828 [details]. 
1. Open the form for input. Set the cursor in the first field of the form. Press the tab-button. The cursor went from one control to the other and also in the tablecontrol. 
2. Close the form, 0pen the form for editing, mark the tablecontrol and have a look at the tabulator-stop. It is set to "No". Set this to "Yes". Save and close the form.
3. Redo 1 - same behaviour.
4. Redo 2, but reset the tabulator-stop to "No".
5. Redo 1 - tabulator wents through all fields except the tablecontrol, as expected in 1., because tabstop isn't set since the creating of the tablecontrol.
Comment 4 Robert Großkopf 2012-09-22 18:39:00 UTC
Do you need more info, or could we change the Status to "New". The described behaviour was also discussed in the German OpenOffice-Forum.
Comment 5 Jochen 2012-09-22 19:01:56 UTC
Hi Robert,

do you mean: bug = different behavior of the tab in step 1 and step 5?
I can confirm this behavior.

1) IMHO must be defined what setting "Yes/No" in form means respectively should cause. Perhaps there is no bug but normal behavior.
2) please poste the link of the thread in the German OpenOffice-Forum.

I have nothing against changing status to "NEW".
Comment 6 Jochen 2012-09-22 19:03:28 UTC
Sorry - using
OS: Windows 7 prof. 64 bit
LO: 3.5.5
Comment 7 Robert Großkopf 2012-09-22 19:53:40 UTC
Described behaviour isn't discussed in the OpenOffice-Forum, but here:

Tabstop "yes": The field could be entered with the tabulator. Its the normal behaviour in a form. you could set this to nearly every control.
Tabstop is set standard to "no" for tablecontrols. So the tabulator should not enter the tablecontrol - but it enters the tablecontrol. Only when you switch to "yes" and and afterwards to "no" the tabstop is set right.

I set the Staus to "New".

Bug appears also in the first available LO-version (LO, OpenSUSE 42.1 64bit rpm Linux). So I set this bug as "Inherited From OOo".

Dear robert,

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 http://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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
