Subject help how to create a patch
Date Thu, 17 Sep 2015 23:24:37 GMT
I believe I have found what can be considered a bug, or at least not
intended behaviour, in the way the OpenOffice API takes values from Java
when setting certain text properties (in this case "CharBackColor") using
the XPropertySet interface. I have been discussing this on a forum thread (
https://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=79294&p=364347)
and have opened an issue for it on the bugzilla tracker (
https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=126531).

I would be willing to look into it and work on a patch for this, if anyone
can point me in the right direction of where exactly to look in the Open
Office source code... I have been skimming over it in the svn repo (
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/openoffice/trunk/), but for a newcomer
it's hard to know where to look (I'm guessing it might have to do with the
XPropertySet interface, or wherever the Text Properties supported by the
interface are defined). If anyone can point me in the right direction I can
try to look into it...
