Help with sysListView selection

Alberto Buffolino
 

Hi all,
I'm working on ColumnsReview add-on, but I have a very specific question about sysListView, so nvda-devel could be a good place too...
I'd like to select/unselect programmatically one or more list items, but it seems not so easy indeed. I found this promising page:
http://vbnet.mvps.org/index.html?code/comctl/lvselectall.htm
and so, starting from a list item and opening NVDA console, I wrote:
***
from NVDAObjects.IAccessible.sysListView32 import *
import watchdog
LVM_SETITEMSTATE = (LVM_FIRST + 43)
***
but then I don't know how to proceed exactly. I tried creating an LVITEM instance (class is in sysListView32) with various mask/state/etc parameters, and passing it as 4th arguments of
***
watchdog.cancellableSendMessage(nav.parent.windowHandle, LVM_SETITEMSTATE, -1, LVITEMInstance)
***
but even if I receive no errors, I don't see changes... and I tried and tried various solutions, with LPARAM, and so on, without success.
Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
Alberto

How to use text and caret MSAA roles correctly.

Ian Reed
 

I am implementing a custom textbox control using Windows Forms from the .NET Framework.
I see that I can create AccessibilityObjects that contain MSAA values such as Name, Role, Value, and a variety of states like focusable and selected.
These objects can have roles like text or caret, and can have children.
Can you tell me what a basic MSAA DOM should look like for a simple textbox that has a caret and some selected text?

I printed the hierarchy of AccessibilityObjects for a standard windows forms textbox, but it had no children and I did not see an object with the caret role.
I examined an existing Windows Forms textbox in the NVDA log viewer, which said:
DEBUG - editableText.EditableText._hasCaretMoved (06:40:57.660):
Caret move detected using bookmarks. Elapsed: 0 ms

I'm not sure what bookmarks are, but some other reading indicates that screen readers often just look for a blinking cursor to detect the caret. Is that what NVDA does?

How can I use the text and caret roles to get NVDA to understand the caret's current location, and to support selecting text?

Thanks,
Ian Reed

Hello NVDA devs and especially Michael,

I am trying to work on fast browse mode PR (a.k.a. focus follows browse mode off).
Just a quick recap: In v1 of this PR there were some  bugs related to the fact that some logic was asynchronous and it relied on gainFocus event being received from the operating system. However in some cases for unknown reason operating system wouldn't send this event, causing bugs that are hard to deal with, such as inability to activate form elements on web pages.
I am now working on v2:
https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/pull/9360
The code is by no means ready to be reviewed, but it's just for the reference.
The main change in v2 is replacing asynchronous logic with synchronous logic there, and in general it works, but there is one new bugI'm facing that I would like to discuss and maybe ask for some help.

Basic description of the bug:
When unchecking a checkbox on a web page, its new state is not being announced. The bug only reproduces for unchecking - that is checking previously blank checkbox works as expected.
Here are the concrete steps to reproduce the bug.
1. Enter Fast browse mode by pressing NVDA+num row 8.
2. In Chrome or Firefox navigate to https://www.ironspider.ca/forms/checkradio.htm
3. Check the first 3 checkboxes on the page
4. Go back to the first check box
5. Press space to uncheck it. The check box will be successfully unchecked, but the new state will not be announced immediately.

I spent some time debugging this , and here are my findings so far.
Announcing state change works like this. First speech.speakObject(obj,controlTypes.REASON_ONLYCACHE) is called to cache the previous state. In traditional browse mode this function is called when user navigates to that checkbox, and therefore system focus is switched to that checkbox as well. This happens in BrowseModeDocumentTreeInterceptor.event_gainFocus.
Then, assuming that user presses space bar on a checkbox, BrowseModeTreeInterceptor._activatePosition is triggered, which activates this checkbox. Shortly, in response to that we receive a state changed event, that is processed in NVDAObject.event_stateChange(), which in turn calls speech.speakObjectProperties(self,states=True, reason=controlTypes.REASON_CHANGE).
So we make two calls to speech module: the first one to cache object properties, the second one to speak whatever properties have changed. Cached properties are stored inside NVDAObject, so it is very important that the same object is passed to both these calls.

Now back to fast browse mode v2. Since we don't update system focus on every browse mode focus change, we need to update system focus right before activating the checkbox. This is accomplished in BrowseModeTreeInterceptor.maybeSyncFocus(). And in the same function, right after I call obj.setFocus(), I also call speech.speakObject(obj,controlTypes.REASON_ONLYCACHE).
However, here is the problem. When we receive state changed event, the function NVDAObject.event_stateChange is called on a different NVDA object instance. So we completely miss the cached state.
When I say a different NVDAObject instance, I only mean a different python object. So there are apparently (at least) two NVDAObjects, I'll call them NVDAObject1 and NVDAObject2. Both represent the same checkbox in the browser, both have the same IA2UniqueID and windowHandle. Yet in the first call (cacheonly) I see NVDAObject1, and the state changed event comes in with NVDAObject2.
To illustrate this, here is the example from my logs (slightly formatted):
cacheonly from maybeSyncFocus():
    <NVDAObjects.IAccessible.mozilla.Mozilla object at 0x07A6A370>
    uniqueID = (67548, -33555216)
speakObject on stateChanged
    <NVDAObjects.IAccessible.mozilla.Mozilla object at 0x07A6A1F0>
    uniqueID = (67548L, -33555216)

So the big question I have is why there are two separate NVDAObjects created for the same checkbox in my scenario? And why they are not created Without my PR? What is logic behind creating new NVDA Objects? I did some cursory debugging of that and I saw that most of NVDAObjects are created using function getNVDAObjectFromEvent() defined in IAccessible2\__init__.py, and there doesn't seem to be any caching logic there.
It seems there are two potential approaches of tackling this issue.
1. We need to figure out why two separate NVDA objects are created.
2. Potentially another approach is to allow creating multiple python NVDAObjects for the same Checkbox (or any other real IAccessible2 object), and have a properties cache that would take this into account. Some kind of weakKeyDictionary might work. Property caching logic in speech.py might have to be redesigned though.

And also another thing worth noticing in the logs that I pasted above. UniqueID is a tuple of WindowHandle and IA2UniqueID . If you looked at both entries carefully, you would notice that WindowHandle is slightly different: even though the value is the same, in the first entry it is int, and in the second entry it is long. This looks very suspicious to me. Do you think this might be the reason why two copies of NVDAObjects are created? On the other hand it doesn't explain why two objects are not created in stock NVDA.

Anyway, this is current state of my second attempt to implement fast browse mode. Any suggestions will be appreciated!

Visual Studio IntelliSense: progress update, some additional thoughts posted in GitHub

 

Hi all, especially Visual Studio users,

 

After talking to Microsoft engineers, I decided to tackle the following problem in hopes of providing guidance for anyone wishing to resolve it:

https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/8336

 

Preliminary results indicate that tracking UIA item status event might be a viable way to resolving this problem (NVDA 2019.1 and later). The remaining issue is suppressing code editor text output while browsing intelliSense suggestions.

 

Also, I added a note about how to deal with UIA events in that issue in hopes that some of you might find it useful. Basically, if you want to find out which UIA event NVDA is meeting throughout its run, install Windows 10 App Essentials add-on (Windows 10 Version 1803 and later), restart NVDA with debug logging enabled, and see what the log viewer says (this is sort of my first go to tool when I need to troubleshoot an issue with features in Windows insider Preview builds; in fact, modern keyboard support (including support for emoji panel) was possible thanks in part to this method).

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Regression in NVDA 2019.1 in regards to reporting of presence of formulas in Microsoft Office Excel 2007

Thanks for reporting this. I can reproduce it, and have created  #9431 to track this issue. Hopefully this issue will be fixed without too much delay. In the meantime, there are several ways to work around the issue, pressing control + ` (accent grave) in excel will toggle between showing formulae in (all) cells rather than the result.

Hello all,

A friend of mine reported to me, that NVDA 2019.1 does not report the presence of formulas in cells in Microsoft Office Excel 2007. In comparison, NVDA 2018.4 did report the presence of formulas in the same version of MS Office Excel.

I have two questions:

  1. Can anyone else reproduce this? I cannot test it, because I don't use that version of Office.
  2. If needs be, what does my friend have to do, to provide useful information which will help to report and diagnose the bug? Will a debug log from NVDA be enough? Or maybe a sample spreadsheet will also be required? Anything else?

Thanks much in advance!

Hi,


All issues and prs have now been corrected, and newly merged prs / closed issues should now get marked as 2019.2.

I had changed the configuration last week, but clearly I forgot to actually tell the server to reload the config :p

hello Michael
Also found that NVDA's prompt about the dialog box is also a problem, it should be 2006-2019, but he does prompt 2006-2018

Regression in NVDA 2019.1 in regards to reporting of presence of formulas in Microsoft Office Excel 2007

 

Hello all,

A friend of mine reported to me, that NVDA 2019.1 does not report the presence of formulas in cells in Microsoft Office Excel 2007. In comparison, NVDA 2018.4 did report the presence of formulas in the same version of MS Office Excel.
