Access2Base is a LibreOffice BASIC library of macros for (business or personal) application developers and advanced users. It is one of the libraries stored in "Application macros and dialogs".
The functionalities provided by the implemented macros are all directly inspired by Microsoft Access. The macros are callable mainly from a LibreOffice Base application, but also from any LibreOffice document (Writer, Calc, ...) where access to data stored in a database makes sense.
API furnizată de Access2Base intenționează să fie mai concisă, intuitivă și mai ușor de învățat decât API standard UNO (API = Interfață de programare a aplicațiilor).
The library is documented online on http://www.access2base.com.
a simplified and extensible API for forms, dialogs and controls manipulations similar with the Microsoft Access object model,
an API for database access with the table, query, recordset and field objects,
a number of actions with a syntax identical to their corresponding Microsoft Access macros/actions,
the DLookup, DSum, ... database functions,
the support of the shortcut notations like Forms!myForm!myControl
a consistent errors and exceptions handler,
facilities for programming form, dialog and control events and
the support of both embedded forms and standalone (Writer) forms.
REM Open a form ... OpenForm("myForm") REM Move a form to new left-top coordinates ... Dim ofForm As Object ' In VBA => Dim ofForm As Form Set ofForm = Forms("myForm") ofForm.Move(100, 200) REM Get the value of a control ... Dim ocControl As Object ocControl = ofForm.Controls("myControl") MsgBox ocControl.Value REM Hide a control ... ocControl.Visible = False REM ... or alternatively ... setValue("Forms!myForm!myControl.Visible", False) ' Shortcut notation ' In VBA => Forms!myForm!myControl.Visible = False
