Subject Re: Integrating help texts and tool tips for extension
Date Fri, 11 Sep 2015 16:55:44 GMT
Tsutomu,

Thank you, however this doesn't work for me on OpenOffice 4.0.1 and
Windows.  I will double check on Linux.  With your new code, the submenu or
menuitem "Menu1" is added and it will show a tooltip matching the copy
command, but the original menu "MenuWithTip" will lose its own tooltip when
the submenu is added.  That's the problem I'm trying to solve and this is a
good demonstration of it.

When I install your first example and check to see what the helpUrl is, I
see "swriter: foo.bar: MenuHelpTip" and the tooltip appears.  When I
install the second example, without the first, and check, I see "swriter:
private:menu/Addon1" and no tooltip appears.  Do you see the same thing?

Thanks for your help.  It may be time to check through the bug list.  This
seems like a design problem that won't be easily fixed.

Keith
