[libreoffice-users] java macro and multiple class methods

2013-06-13 Thread Vieri
Hi,

I have a java macro and a parcel-descriptor.xml with just one method declared:

?xml version=1.0 encoding=UTF-8?
parcel language=Java xmlns:parcel=scripting.dtd
script language=Java
locale lang=en
displayname value=CO.Java/
description
CO macro.
/description
/locale
functionname value=CO.CO_submit/
logicalname value=CO.CO_submit/
languagedepprops
prop name=classpath value=COLO.jar/
/languagedepprops
/script
/parcel

Suppose I have another class method (CO_test) I'd like to call from LO. I'd 
like to add CO.CO_test just like I declared CO.CO_submit.
How can I do this?

If I try the following:

?xml version=1.0 encoding=UTF-8?
parcel language=Java xmlns:parcel=scripting.dtd
script language=Java
locale lang=en
displayname value=CO.Java/
description
CO macro.
/description
/locale
functionname value=CO.CO_submit/
logicalname value=CO.CO_submit/
languagedepprops
prop name=classpath value=COLO.jar/
/languagedepprops
/script
script language=Java
locale lang=en
displayname value=COtest.Java/
description
CO test macro.
/description
/locale
functionname value=CO.CO_test/
logicalname value=CO.CO_test/
languagedepprops
prop name=classpath value=COLO.jar/
/languagedepprops
/script
/parcel

then I can see both methods in LO. So I can select any of the two and run them. 
However, no matter which one of the two I try to run, only the CO.CO_submit 
method will be run.

What am I doing wrong?

I haven't found a single example on the internet or in the docs where a 
parcel-descriptor defines more than one method to call.

Surely I could duplicate the jar and parcel-descriptor files and define one 
method in each of them but that seems too inefficient.

Thanks,

Vieri

Never mind... Right after posting this e-mail it started to work correctly. I 
don't know what I was doing wrong before.

Sorry for the noise.

 Kalispera, [= hello]
 I,  Dimitio Desylas, of the Greek LoCo community for Ubuntu would like to
 help my LibreOffice to become better platform.  Reason is that I want to
 promote the free, open source software companies organizations and schools
 to ordinary users. (eg my sister)

 So I suggest to add these features. These features reason I suggest the
 following comparison libre office impress (the last stable version) with MS
 powerpoint course in Microsoft WINDOWS 7 has the H / PC where you do not
 practice the LibreOffice the I use in Ubuntu linux 12.04.02 I use home.:

 * Improved color palette: In MS office powerpoint noticed that I can add
 custom font color. How simply words can be identified and mine color values
 ​​beyond some defaults. ie I define my own values ​​in r, g, b as the font
 color and background color - fill a shape and generally where I have to
 choose color.  If he has, is good to have and the corresponding option and
 buttons that it font color and click th is for color filling.


A feature to be able to specify a custom font color.
This would require a search at the LibreOffice bugzilla in case it is
already filed.
I am not sure if LibreOffice uses the OS palette widget, which in this case
it would be an issue to enable in that palette the ability to select a
custom color.



 * Ability to select multiple images Admission: Once I Insert image from
 Impress allow me to introduce only a picture. The corresponding choice of
 MS office gives me can choose more than one insert images. In LibreOffice
 need to enter one by one while ms office I can Enter all together


A feature to multi-select images when inserting an image to a document. I
think this should be an easy-hack. If there is no bug report already on
this, a feature request should be filed first. Again, it should be an issue
of enabling the multiple-file selection for FileOpen, and adjust
LibreOffice to accept multiple images into the document.



 * standards may be stored in the closed format: When becomes a
 presentation of the standards has preset the Impress when stored in.  Pptx
 then some points such size and position of objects and presentation buttets
 alloionontai and not stored properly so that the text is in the wrong place
 and some bullets do not look good when you re open the Impress.  Which does
 not help either document sharing and either in migration in LibreOffice.


This is a request for compatibility with the presentation templates (.ppx),
which in some cases they are not rendered correctly in LibreOffice. Here
there should be a bug report (or more) on specific issues on .ppx files
which are not used properly in LibreOffice. The bug report should specify a
.ppx, and how it is used wrongly in LibreOffice.



 * Ability to save as image: At the Ms office Powerpoint noticed that I can
 select text or an object and save it as a picture thing to do a group
 picture along with other images
 and text and save it as an image thing that helps especially do logos on
 site. It would have been and this feature the LibreOffice Impress.


This is a feature request to be able to save a selection from a document,
into an image. The selection would either be a paragraph or text along with
images or other objects.
I think this could be implemented through an addon.


 Personally i do not blame Impress.  I just want the LibreOffice be worthy
 replacement for MS Office because I believe in the idea of ​​free and open
 source and I want to contribute.  If there some of them would like to tell
 me where to Impress.  Still will like if some of the above features are
 developed for future versions LibreOffice.



In all these issues, I think Dimitris can search the LibreOffice bugzilla
and try to identify existing reports. If there is no report already, a new
report can be filed for each.
Then, post the URLs for those reports to the list in order for the rest of
us to subscribe and discuss further.

 Hi, 

 Grade_CellBehavior.ods
 http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/file/n4061013/Grade_CellBehavior.ods  

 In the uploaded Calc file 'Grade_CellBehavior.ods' the column AE and BH are
 just simple cells with number values.

 The Sheet '1.'  in this file is a sheet from another, bigger Calc file (
 called here 'file1' ) in which I have such sheets for every pupil.

 I have also a Calc file 'file2' in which I have too such columns, as AE and
 BH, but cells in these columns are not just cells with number values, but
 links for 'file1'.

 So, in the school I fill out the cells in the 'file1' file, come home, copy
 the 'file1' into approppriate directory, open the 'file2' Calc file and get
 the values into it from 'file1' automatically.

 I hope this is cleare so far. 

 As one can see in 'Grade_CellBehavior.ods' when one change the value '3' in
 AE6 to value '2' then the value in AD6 changes automatically to value !?.
 This shows me that that a teacher closed the grade for that Subject badly.

 But this doesn't work in the 'file2', because eg. the value in AE6 is not
 just a number, but a value that we get is a link from 'file1'.

 I hope this is clear. 

 How can I solve this to works in the 'file2' too?

If you put {=MMULT(MINVERSE(A14:R31),S14:S31)} in, say, A1. A2 with

[libreoffice-users] packaging a Java macro class in an extension (.oxt)

2013-06-13 Thread Vieri
Hi,

I'm trying to deploy macros within a custom oxt extension.
I successfully deployed a Basic library by doing the following:

in META-INF\manifest.xml I added:

 manifest:file-entry manifest:full-path=CO_SaveDoc/ 
manifest:media-type=application/vnd.sun.star.basic-library/
 
 manifest:file-entry manifest:full-path=CO_SaveDoc/COSaveDoc.xcu 
manifest:media-type=application/vnd.sun.star.configuration-data/
 
 manifest:file-entry manifest:full-path=CO_SaveDoc/COSaveDoc.xcs 
manifest:media-type=application/vnd.sun.star.configuration-schema/


The CO_SaveDoc subdir contains several xba files as well as the script.xlb 
and dialog.xlb files.

If I install my custom oxt extension, I can see all my custom Basic macros 
within LO.

However, I'm failing to add my custom Java macros.

in META-INF\manifest.xml I added:

 manifest:file-entry 
manifest:full-path=CO_SaveDoc_Java/parcel-descriptor.xml 
manifest:media-type=text/xml/

 manifest:file-entry manifest:full-path=CO_SaveDoc_Java/COj1.jar 
manifest:media-type=application/vnd.sun.star.uno-component;type=Java/


and the CO_SaveDoc_Java subdir contains both files of which 
parcel-descriptor.xml has the following:

parcel language=Java xmlns:parcel=scripting.dtd
script language=Java
locale lang=en
displayname value=COj1.CO/
description
CO macro.
/description
/locale
functionname value=CO.COSaveDoc/
logicalname value=CO.COSaveDoc/
languagedepprops
prop name=classpath value=CO_SaveDoc_Java/COj1.jar/
/languagedepprops
/script
/parcel

If I zip that all up and try to install it as an .oxt then I get the following 
error:


%PROGRAMFILES%\LibreOffice 4.0\programunopkg add --shared 
Z:\LibreOffice\extensions\CO_SaveDoc-1.0.0.oxt

ERROR: An error occurred while enabling: COj1.jar
   Cause: com.sun.star.registry.CannotRegisterImplementationException: 
Cannot determine registration class!

unopkg failed.


I don't know what the above message means and how to fix it.

I then tried this instead of the above in META-INF\manifest.xml:

 manifest:file-entry 
manifest:full-path=CO_SaveDoc_Java/parcel-descriptor.xml 
manifest:media-type=text/xml/
 manifest:file-entry manifest:full-path=CO_SaveDoc_Java/COj1.jar 
manifest:media-type=application/vnd.sun.star.uno-typelibrary;type=Java/

and I don't get any errors while installing the oxt extension. However, if I 
open LO I can't find my Java macro library.

What could I be doing wrong?

I'm trying to follow several guides on the web, among others, this one:
http://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/DevGuide/Extensions/File_Format#Uno_Jar_Components

Does anyone know of an extension out there (http://extensions.libreoffice.org) 
that I could download that actually has Java macros?

Thanks,

Vieri

is in A1 (as the questioner required), to use Ctrl+Shift+Enter 
instead of simple Enter each time to confirm the edit.

[libreoffice-users] LO 4.0.3.3: 'Insert: Horizontal rule' is missing

2013-06-13 Thread Maurice Batey
Having installed Mageia-3 on a trial basis, I have come across an omission
in its LO 4.0.3.3 that I have been using on Mageia-2's LO 3.5.7.2, namely
'Insert: Horizontal rule'

The result is that any document prepared with 3.5.7.2 does not appear
correctly under 4.0.3.3.

I see from:

http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/14922/why-is-horizontal-line-broken-in-401/

that the omission is a deliberate change rather than accidental (although it 
seems
the Help info still  thinks otherwise...).

Why on earth drop a feature that people are using?
What is the rationale?

Failing any other solution to my problem, is there any way I can copy the
3.5.7.2 'ruler' file over in to 4.0.3.3 so that the latter shows the lines 
properly?

Hi :)
Feel free to post a bug-report or wish-list item about it
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport

There might already be one but you will find that out after filling in a 
suitable subject-line for the report (hopefully before it asks you to fill in 
the message part).  I suspect that if you put a clickable link to the 
feature-request/bug-report in the Ask LO thread and another in this thread 
then a lot of people might support it.

Tom :)

Could not see one - but there is one (53852) asking for an improvement to 
the now omitted function! (Last posting there Aug.26 2012...)

For new documents I could manage without the function, but I have an 
existing document using horizontal rules that no longer shows the lines 
correctly, so I shall raise a bug report.

I think it is poor that such a function should just be dropped for no 
apparent reason, in such an incompatible way, and with no pre-discussion 
that I'm aware of.

Kalispera, [= hello]
I,  Dimitio Desylas, of the Greek LoCo community for Ubuntu would like to
help my LibreOffice to become better platform.  Reason is that I want to
promote the free, open source software companies organizations and schools
to ordinary users. (eg my sister)

So I suggest to add these features. These features reason I suggest the
following comparison libre office impress (the last stable version) with MS
powerpoint course in Microsoft WINDOWS 7 has the H / PC where you do not
practice the LibreOffice the I use in Ubuntu linux 12.04.02 I use home.:

* Improved color palette: In MS office powerpoint noticed that I can add
custom font color. How simply words can be identified and mine color values
​​beyond some defaults. ie I define my own values ​​in r, g, b as the font
color and background color - fill a shape and generally where I have to
choose color.  If he has, is good to have and the corresponding option and
buttons that it font color and click th is for color filling.


A feature to be able to specify a custom font color.
This would require a search at the LibreOffice bugzilla in case it is
already filed.
I am not sure if LibreOffice uses the OS palette widget, which in this case
it would be an issue to enable in that palette the ability to select a
custom color.



* Ability to select multiple images Admission: Once I Insert image from
Impress allow me to introduce only a picture. The corresponding choice of
MS office gives me can choose more than one insert images. In LibreOffice
need to enter one by one while ms office I can Enter all together


A feature to multi-select images when inserting an image to a document. I
think this should be an easy-hack. If there is no bug report already on
this, a feature request should be filed first. Again, it should be an issue
of enabling the multiple-file selection for FileOpen, and adjust
LibreOffice to accept multiple images into the document.



* standards may be stored in the closed format: When becomes a
presentation of the standards has preset the Impress when stored in.  Pptx
then some points such size and position of objects and presentation buttets
alloionontai and not stored properly so that the text is in the wrong place
and some bullets do not look good when you re open the Impress.  Which does
not help either document sharing and either in migration in LibreOffice.


This is a request for compatibility with the presentation templates (.ppx),
which in some cases they are not rendered correctly in LibreOffice. Here
there should be a bug report (or more) on specific issues on .ppx files
which are not used properly in LibreOffice. The bug report should specify a
.ppx, and how it is used wrongly in LibreOffice.



* Ability to save as image: At the Ms office Powerpoint noticed that I can
select text or an object and save it as a picture thing to do a group
picture along with other images
and text and save it as an image thing that helps especially do logos on
site. It would have been and this feature the LibreOffice Impress.



This is a feature request to be able to save a selection from a document,
into an image. The selection would either be a paragraph or text along with
images or other objects.
I think this could be implemented through an addon.



Personally i do not blame Impress.  I just want the LibreOffice be worthy
replacement for MS Office because I believe in the idea of ​​free and open
source and I want to contribute.  If there some of them would like to tell
me where to Impress.  Still will like if some of the above features are
developed for future versions LibreOffice.




In all these issues, I think Dimitris can search the LibreOffice bugzilla
and try to identify existing reports. If there is no report already, a new
report can be filed for each.
Then, post the URLs for those reports to the list in order for the rest of
us to subscribe and discuss further.

Ahh, so English is not a problem for you either then? :)  I was worrying about 
trying to translate the responses into Greek.  Sadly, i only know 1 language!  

Please let us know how well this is going if you have time to.  Have you found

2013-06-13 Thread V Stuart Foote
Maurice,

Simply reopen issue  fdo#60858
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60858  , but you will need to
make a strong case from a UX position as to why a horizontal rule direct
style object is needed.

Also, HTML styles and direct editing still support use of HR or HR /
tagging so the horizontal rule is an more an issue of direct styling
paragraph separators.

A more precise discussion Ask LibreOffice thread  is: 
selection-of-horizontal-rule-no-longer-possible
http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/15930/selection-of-horizontal-rule-no-longer-possible/
  

Looking at fdo#60858, the decision to remove the direct styling looks to
have been one of code maintenance...

But a case has to be made for UX development to reestablish--that process is
via the fdo#60858 bug and the LibreOffice   UX-Advise
http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/UX-Advise-f3619688.html   list.

I've gone ahead and reopened the fdo#60858 bug.  

But, is it a regression or a needed enhancement?

In either case, please make your usage case for needing horizontal rule as
separators.   Should address both direct styling (i.e. from the menu) as
well as page styling (i.e. the horizontal rule applied as paragraph
separator).

  Now raised, but I still don't have a bug report number.
  
The gist of it is that the omission* of the Horizontal Rule option has
created a problem for documents that already have such lines, i.e. it
was an *incompatible* change.

(* I see that the mission was on grounds of 'difficulty of maintenance'.
Does that mean we may see other useful facilities suddenly

Hi :)
It would be really great if more of us could learn how to mark as duplicate 
and other triaging stuff.  Even just a few people here learnt what is in some 
of those drop-downs that would be good.  I'm completely hopeless at remembering 
that sort of thing but there is a competition coming up soon and it would be 
great if the Users List were able to walk off with some of the prizes.  It's a 
t-shirt rather than a cup or trophy for the top 10 so it's a tad more useful!

Congrats Maurice if you were the one that marked-as-duplicate!  If Stuart did 
it then many thanks again to him for all his work.  

Regards from 

Tom :)

Re: [libreoffice-users] create custom macro within share location (program files)

2013-06-13 Thread Andrew Douglas Pitonyak
Openoffice stores individual macros in modules. Modules are stored in 
libraries, and libraries are stored in macro containers.


Three things can be macro containers, documents, your user space, and 
one that is global to OpenOffice. It sounds like you desire to add a 
macro that is global to OpenOffice. I have never done this It is not 
enabled on my Linux system, is it available to you to do from the GUI 
when you are logged in as an administrator?


I expect that the Link from Tom Davis is the best you can find, since I 
don't see an ability to set the Macro location directories in the 
configuration.

Hi,

This is probably trivial but I'm not capable of correctly creating new custom 
macros within %PROGRAMFILES%\LibreOffice 4.0\share\basic\ (Windows 7).

My goal is to setup some custom macros globally for all users (location=share). I don't 
want to include the macros within location=document because I'll be deploying lots of 
docs and it would be a pain to maintain/update macros within every single odt document. 
I'd also like to avoid location=user (or location=application - I don't remember which is 
which) because I have PCs that are being used by lots of users and copying/syncing 
user macros to each user profile on every machine would be a waste of space 
and network bandwidth.
That's why I was hoping to install and update all my macros within the main LO 
application.
Another even better way would be to tell the LO application that my custom macros can be 
found on a remote server, eg. something like location=url. This way, I'd 
maintain my macros on my web/ftp/webdav/whatever server (just one single copy) and forget 
about syncing them with each and every LO client installation.

Any ideas?

Vieri

[libreoffice-users] DDE Links from calc to writer

2013-06-13 Thread Mike Shaul

Hello all,

I have created a document in writer that has DDE links to a spreadsheet 
I created in calc. It has recently been acting funny, when I change a 
value in the calc spreadsheet it used to change all the values in the 
document in writer. Now, about 80% of the writer document responds to 
the changes in calc but about 20% does not. Could this be due to having 
too many links? I have about 3400 DDE links.


I'm using:
LibreOffice 3.5.4.2
Linux mint Cinnamon

I should also say that on a scale from 1-10 on computer knowledge I'm at 
best a 5.


Thank you in advance,
-Mike

So much for the big discussion earlier about how everyone should switch 
to ODT because the standard wouldn't change.LOL


This just proves, that if you want those old files, you'd better have an 
old OS and software available to read them.

Hi :)
Hmm, there are many reasons for preferring non-MS.  Backwards compatibility is 
just 1 of the issues.  Current compatibility with it's own current formats is 
another.  A third is whether it's current formats work with non-MS products 
that do follow the OOXML ISO standard.  
Regards from 
Tom :)

Preferring MS or not, or any other format, isn't the point here.

It's accessing the old files regardless of format, which even LO appears 
to be abandoning.  You can't have it both ways, use ODT because the 
standards will remain unchanged so old files can be accessed while 
accepting a decision that prevents the accurate opening of the old files.
