Description Maxim Monastirsky 2015-11-19 22:21:14 UTC
As the title says, the toolbar context menu, as well as the overflow menu have no commands.

This is a regression of:

    Toolbar: Refactor insert toolitem code
    Change-Id: Icb615164c4dc3e96048829805a3eb0faa7d88e4e

We're now using ToolBox::InsertItem(const OUString& ... to insert toolbar buttons from ToolBarManager, and it sets new item ids as (30000 + items count). The problem is that ToolBox::UpdateCustomMenu sets the menu ids as (item id + 57344) which overflows the 16-bit int, and breaks a whole bunch of code that relies on it.

Not sure what's the best way of fixing this. We could, for instance, start items from 1 instead of 30000 (0 is reserved for separators and should not be used). Hard to believe this will create any trouble. This 30000 is also used in vcl/source/window/builder.cxx:1671 for items without a command, but in reality a ToolBox will never have > 30000 items, so it would never clash.

On the other hand, maybe it's better to change TOOLBOX_MENUITEM_START from 57344 to a lower value?

@Samuel: What do you think on this? What's the best solution?

Hi Maxim,

many thanks for reporting & investigating!
I proposed a patch, and I did both options you suggested (reduce TOOLBOX_MENUITEM_START and remove this 30000 constant).
I guess it's save to have the ItemID be "GetItemCount() + 1", or am I missing something?

Yes, it seems so. But might be a good idea to ask Caolán/Kendy first, as they introduced those 30000.

Pushed now. Kendy, Caolán, if there are any objections against that patch, let me know. Can then still prepare a follow-up fix.
