ScriptForge.Session service

The Session service gathers various general-purpose methods about:

Invocació del servei


     GlobalScope.BasicLibraries.loadLibrary("ScriptForge")
     Dim session As Variant
     session = CreateScriptService("Session")
    
note

This service is fully supported in both Basic and Python languages. All examples are expressed using the Basic programming language and can be easily converted to Python.


Constants

Below is a list of constants available to ease the designation of the library containing a Basic or Python script to invoke.
Use them as session.CONSTANT.

tip

Session service methods behave as follows:
Arguments are passed by value. Updates performed by the called function are not sent back to the calling script.
A single value or an array of values is returned to the calling script.


ExecuteBasicScript

Execute the Basic script given its name and location and fetch its result if any.

If the script is not found, or if it returns nothing, the returned value is Empty.

Sintaxi:


      session.ExecuteBasicScript([Scope As String], Script As String[, arg0 As Variant, ...]) As Variant
   

Paràmetres:

Scope: "document" or "application" or one of the applicable session.CONSTANTS.

Script: "library.module.method" as a case-sensitive string.
The library is loaded in memory if necessary.
The module must not be a class module.
The method may be a Sub or a Function.

arg0, ...: The arguments to provide to the called script.

Exemple:


      session.ExecuteBasicScript(, "XrayTool._Main.Xray", CreateUnoService("com.sun.star.util.TextSearch"))
      ' Xray no retorna cap valor
   

ExecuteCalcFunction

Execute a Calc function using its English name and based on the given arguments.
If the arguments are arrays, the function is executed as an array formula.

Sintaxi:


      session.ExecuteCalcFunction(CalcFunction As String, arg0, ...) As Variant
   

Paràmetres:

CalcFunction: The English name of the function to execute.

arg0, ...: The arguments to provide to the called Calc function. Each argument must be either a string, a numeric value or an array of arrays combining those types.

Exemple:


      session.ExecuteCalcFunction("AVERAGE", 1, 5, 3, 7) ' 4
      session.ExecuteCalcFunction("ABS", Array(Array(-1,2,3),Array(4,-5,6),Array(7,8,-9)))(2)(2) ' 9
      session.ExecuteCalcFunction("LN", -3)
      ' Genera un error.
   

ExecutePythonScript

Execute the Python script given its location and name, fetch its result if any. Result can be a single value or an array of values.

If the script is not found, or if it returns nothing, the returned value is Empty.

The LibreOffice Application Programming Interface (API) Scripting Framework supports inter-language script execution between Python and Basic, or other supported programming languages for that matter. Arguments can be passed back and forth across calls, provided that they represent primitive data types that both languages recognize, and assuming that the Scripting Framework converts them appropriately.

Sintaxi:


      session.ExecutePythonScript([Scope] As String, Script As String[, arg0 As Variant, ...]) As Variant
   

Paràmetres:

Scope: One of the applicable session.CONSTANTS. Default = session.SCRIPTISSHARED.

Script: Either "library/module.py$method" or "module.py$method" or "myExtension.oxt|myScript|module.py$method" as a case-sensitive string.

arg0, ...: The arguments to provide to the called script.

Exemple:


      session.ExecutePythonScript(session.SCRIPTISSHARED, "Capitalise.py$getNewString", "Abc") ' "abc"
   

HasUnoMethod

Returns True if an UNO object contains the given method. Returns False when the method is not found or when an argument is invalid.

Sintaxi:


      session.HasUnoMethod(UnoObject As Object, MethodName As String) As Boolean
   

Paràmetres:

UnoObject: The object to inspect.

MethodName: the method as a case-sensitive string

Exemple:


      Dim a As Variant
      a = CreateUnoService("com.sun.star.sheet.FunctionAccess")
      MsgBox session.HasUnoMethod(a, "callFunction")
   

HasUnoProperty

Returns True if a UNO object has the given property. Returns False when the property is not found or when an argument is invalid.

Sintaxi:


      session.HasUnoProperty(UnoObject As Object, PropertyName As String) As Boolean
   

Paràmetres:

UnoObject: The object to inspect.

PropertyName: the property as a case-sensitive string

Exemple:


      Dim svc As Variant
      svc = CreateUnoService("com.sun.star.sheet.FunctionAccess")
      MsgBox session.HasUnoProperty(svc, "Wildcards")
   

OpenURLInBrowser

Obre un localitzador uniforme de recursos (un URL, per les seves sigles en anglès) al navegador per defecte.

Sintaxi:


      session.OpenURLInBrowser(URL As String)
   

Paràmetres:

URL: The URL to open.

Exemple:


      session.OpenURLInBrowser("https://docs.python.org/3/library/webbrowser.html")
   

RunApplication

Executes an arbitrary system command and returns True if it was launched successfully.

Sintaxi:


      session.RunApplication(Command As String, Parameters As String) As Boolean
   

Paràmetres:

Command: The command to execute. This may be an executable file or a document which is registered with an application so that the system knows what application to launch for that document. The command must be expressed in the current SF_FileSystem.FileNaming notation.

Parameters: A list of space separated parameters as a single string. The method does not validate the given parameters, but only passes them to the specified command.

Exemple:


      session.RunApplication("Notepad.exe")
      session.RunApplication("C:\myFolder\myDocument.odt")
      session.RunApplication("kate", "/home/me/install.txt") ' GNU/Linux
   

SendMail

Send a message - with optional attachments - to recipients from the user's mail client. The message may be edited by the user before sending or, alternatively, be sent immediately.

Sintaxi:


      session.SendMail(Recipient As String, [Cc As String], [Bcc As String], [Subject As String], [Body As String], [FileNames As String], [EditMessage As Boolean])
   

Paràmetres:

Recipient: An email address (the "To" recipient).

Cc: A comma-separated list of email addresses (the "carbon copy" recipients).

Bcc: A comma-separated list of email addresses (the "blind carbon copy" recipients).

Subject: the header of the message.

Body: The content of the message as an unformatted text.

FileNames: a comma-separated list of file names. Each file name must respect the SF_FileSystem.FileNaming notation.

EditMessage: When True (default), the message is edited before being sent.

      session.SendMail("a@example.com" _
          , Cc := "b@other.fr, c@other.be" _
          , FileNames := "C:\myFile1.txt, C:\myFile2.txt" _
          )

      Dim a As Variant
      a = CreateUnoService("com.sun.star.sheet.FunctionAccess")
      MsgBox SF_Array.Contains(session.UnoMethods(a), "callFunction")

      Dim svc As Variant, txt As String
      svc = CreateUnoService("com.sun.star.system.SystemShellExecute")

Totes les rutines o identificadors Basic de l'ScriptForge que comencen per un guió baix «_» són únicament per a ús intern. No han d'utilitzar-se en macros Basic.
