Write help page for Label field selection, a dialog available when creating forms in Calc
Add help button to dialog
Seems like a reasonable request. Also quite easy - adding NeedDevEval
Migrating Whiteboard tags to Keywords: (needsDevEval)
Just as an update for this bug, the dialog now has a Help button that tries to open:
However, the Help page does not exist.
I can write a simple Help Page for this dialog. The only problem is that I could not figure out what the "Label Field" property of a List Box actually does.
I did a lot of testing, but I could not understand this property. Also I could not find anything in the guides. If someone can provide a brief explanation, that would be very helpful.
Each widget in the dialog has a name and the Help system can open the target in the right Help page. To avoid having to insert bookmarks for every dialog widget in the Help page I made a hack to find the right page even if the widget target is absent: @@nowidget@@
So you need to add to your new Help page:
<bookmark xml-lang="en-US" branch="hid/spropctrlr/ui/labelselectiondialog/@@nowidget@@" id="bm_id3153823" localize="false"/>
