3) What is expected to happen in Calc via the Terminal:

cd ~/Desktop && wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openoffice.org/+bug/258705/+attachment/403067/+files/xyscatterbug.ods && localc -nologo xyscatterbug.ods

double click the XY (Scatter), sorted by X values chart and hover the mouse icon over a data point, the pop up notes the correct X,Y value.

4) What happens instead is it does not. The pop-up is using the data values top to bottom, to display the data point values from left to right.

Hi Christopher

I can confirm that using your explanation I can reproducible that problem. But if I build XY chart from scratch using your data it's not happen.

Could you confirm using LO whether tooltips still show wrong info?
Comment 4 Christopher M. Penalver 2013-05-25 12:53:19 UTC
ign_christian, thank you for your comments. Using the attachment noted in the Description https://bugs.freedesktop.org/attachment.cgi?id=46954 one may open Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 Excel Version 14.0.6023.1000 (32-bit), hover over the noted data point, and it displays the correct tooltip information. For future triaging, let the focus be on the noted attachment.

Problem in Description reproducible in:
Microsoft Windows Vista Business x86 6.0.6002 Service Pack 2 Build 6002

Comment 5 ign_christian 2013-06-13 08:17:31 UTC
I was using that attachment. Just wondering why creating new XY chart on that attachment generates correct result?
Comment 6 Julien Nabet 2014-08-24 07:26:37 UTC
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated yesterday, I could reproduce this.

If I create from the file attached a new graphic, I could reproduce too the problem.
(ign_christian: had you checked "Sort by X Values"?)
Comment 7 ign_christian 2014-08-24 08:25:51 UTC
You're right Julien, reproducible with "Sort by X values" checked with LO Looks like I forgot checked that in previous testing :)

Anyway I don't understand the purpose of "Sort by X values" in XY chart. It doesn't make any difference in chart.
Comment 8 Julien Nabet 2014-08-24 08:46:30 UTC
Thank you ign_christian for your feedback. Great (in a way) you could reproduce it too :)

Just some notes.
Searching "Sort by X Values" with keyId language gives this:
=> tp_ChartType.ui

http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/search?q=tp_ChartType.ui&project=core&defs=&refs=&path=&hist= gives:
- chart2/source/controller/dialogs/tp_PointGeometry.cxx
- chart2/source/controller/dialogs/tp_ChartType.cxx
From the second one, searching "sort" keyword gives mpCB_XValueSorting, itself linked to "bSortByXValues" member of ChartTypeParameter, see http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/chart2/source/controller/dialogs/ChartTypeDialogController.hxx#81
Comment 9 Julien Nabet 2014-08-24 21:04:11 UTC
bSortByXValues brings there:

Searching about how is defined data point gives this:
STR_TIP_DATAPOINT which leads there:

But then, I'm a bit stuck.

Kohei/Markus/Eike: any idea here?
