Description Olivier Hallot 2014-08-30 19:26:46 UTC
Write help page for Label field selection, a dialog available when creating forms in Calc

Add help button to dialog 
Comment 1 Joel Madero 2014-09-03 08:44:33 UTC
Seems like a reasonable request. Also quite easy - adding NeedDevEval

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.
Comment 4 Olivier Hallot 2021-04-13 14:38:13 UTC
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"/>
