Type Statement

Define non-UNO data structures.

A Type structure is an ordered collection of data fields, that can be manipulated as a single item.


         Type struct_name
             DataField1 As TypeName1
             DataField2 As TypeName2
         End Type ' struct_name

A Type structure scope is that of the module it belongs to.


         Type Customer
             Name1 As String
             City As String
         End Type ' Customer structure
         Sub setCustomer
             Dim oCustomer as New Customer
             oCustomer.Name1 = "The Document Foundation"
             oCustomer.City = "Berlin"
         End Sub

Enumerations can be created using Type statement definitions. Calling Python Scripts from Basic illustrates that mechanism.
