What is Access2Base?

Acces2Base este o bibliotecă de macro-uri (profesionale sau personale) LibreOffice Basic pentru dezvoltatori de aplicații și utilizatori avansați. Este o bibliotecă păstrata în "Macrouri si dialoguri LibreOffice".

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).

Compare Access2Base with Microsoft Access VBA

   REM Open a form ... 
   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
