Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (OFFICE-3765) [spreadsheet] Proposal: <number:fill-character> element for data styles

     [ https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-3765?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Patrick Durusau updated OFFICE-3765:
    Proposal:   (was: 1. RATIONALE
 1.1 Use cases:
 For interoperability with other spreadsheet implementations an
 additional attribute is needed to specify a fill character used to fill
 space between grid border and content, or separating two parts of
 a displayed value string and filling in with the character.
 1.2 Alternatives considered:

 2.1 Text changes/additions:
 In section 
 16.27 Data Styles

 The content of this element specifies a Unicode character that is
 displayed repeatedly at the position where it occurs.

There are three possible positions for this element, resulting in
 display strings as follows:
 * Start of style:
 * Right adjusts the display string and fills available space with the
 character specified from the left cell grid border up to the display
 * End of style:
 * Left adjusts the display string and fills available space with the
 character specified from the display string up to the right cell
 grid border.
 * Within style:
 * Splits the display string in two at the position where the element
 occurs, first part becomes left justified, second part becomes right
 justified, the available space in between is filled with the
 character specified.

The <number:fill-character> element is usable within the following

[these lists are generated from the schema IIRC]
 <number:number-style> <number:currency-style> <number:percentage-style>
 <number:date-style> <number:time-style> <number:text-style>

[and list the <number:fill-character> element as a child element of each of those]

[for each of those elements add wording that the element can occur only once, for example:]

This element can contain one instance of each of the following elements:
 [and add <number:fill-character>]

2.2 Schema changes/additions:

New element:
 <define name="number-fill-character">
 <element name="number:fill-character">

Add to each
 <element name="number:number-style">
 <element name="number:currency-style">
 <element name="number:percentage-style">
 <element name="number:date-style">
 <element name="number:time-style">
 <element name="number:text-style">

 <ref name="number-fill-character"/>


complete schema proposal attached to this mail:



 3.1 Conformance:
 A processor may ignore this element, for example if there is no cell
 grid available or in data processing.

3.2 Backwards compatibility:
 This element was not available in previous versions and is optional.
 Existing ODF processors may ignore it.

3.3 Accessibility impact:
