I am looking for a volunteer to change ONE line of code.
It is bug http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=104788
inherited from OOo. It is about 1.5 years old and inhibits extension
developers (like me) from using the Dropdownbox in the toolbar.

The line that has to be changed according to the api mailing list and
that bug report is below:

Index: framework/source/uielement/dropdownboxtoolbarcontroller.cxx

             xDispatch = getDispatchFromCommand( m_aCommandURL );
             aCommandURL = m_aCommandURL;
             aTargetURL = getInitializedURL();
-            aSelectedText = m_pListBoxControl->GetText();
+            aSelectedText = m_pListBoxControl->GetSelectEntry();

Background info:
In an extension one can design an own toolbar, that might contain this
When this value is changed the extension gets notified via a dispatch
through the above procedure.
The "aSelectedText" should contain the text content of the newly
selected dropdownbox item, but due to this bug just returns an empty
So the extension does not know which item was selected.
My current work around: using ToggleDropdownButton (not as nice in this

Since it is a one-liner, I am hoping that someone could quickly make
this change. If you are living in Munich, a free beer is guaranteed!

Do I have to file a bug?
