Opening a Dialog With Program Code

From LibreOffice Help
Jump to: navigation, search

In the LibreOffice BASIC window for a dialog that you created, leave the dialog editor by clicking the name tab of the Module that the dialog is assigned to. The name tab is at the bottom of the window.

Enter the following code for a subroutine called Dialog1Show. In this example, the name of the dialog that you created is "Dialog1":

Sub Dialog1Show
    BasicLibraries.LoadLibrary("Tools")
    oDialog1 = LoadDialog("Standard", "Dialog1")
    oDialog1.Execute()
End Sub

Without using "LoadDialog" you can call the code as follows:

Sub Dialog1Show
    DialogLibraries.LoadLibrary("Standard")
    oDialog1 = CreateUnoDialog( DialogLibraries.Standard.Dialog1 )
    oDialog1.Execute()
End Sub

When you execute this code, "Dialog1" opens. To close the dialog, click the close button (x) on its title bar.
