Libre/openoffice Writer

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

are you aware about some kind of UDF functions and/or way to interact with libreoffice Writer?

I found just a UDF pack that works with Calc.

Thanks

Marco

@MarcoMonte
Did you try the first UDF?
It seems to work with LibreOffice too :)

Sorry, I misread your request.
Seems that there's no LibreOffice Writer UDF, but you could use the LibreOffice SDK to make your own :)

As far as I remeber there was some function on the forum , which was related to OOO Writer and a feature which will give you a possibility to save documents as PDF.

And fixed version: WriterDemo.au3

Fix is related to this function:

Func createStruct($sTypeName)
    Local $oServiceManager = ObjCreate("com.sun.star.ServiceManager")
    Local $oReturn = $oServiceManager.Bridge_GetStruct($sTypeName)
    Return $oReturn

#cs THIS FOLLOWING COMMENTED CODE SNIPPET WAS TAKEN FROM ORIGINAL WriterDemo.vbs
    Local $classSize = $oCoreReflection.forName($sTypeName)

    Local $aStruct[0]
    $classSize.createObject($aStruct)

    Return $aStruct
#ce
EndFunc   ;==>createStruct
