I am developing a c++ plugin for libre office in which i have a requirement to get all referenced links present in a sheet through api. I have looked at api documentation for libre office and found some services: 1. 2. 3.

I am having a reference mxDesktop of XDesktop interface. Using this reference i get the current component. here is the code snippet:

Reference < XComponent> lxComponent = mxDesktop->getCurrentComponent();

Then I get the Reference of XSpreadsheetDocument and XMultiServiceFactory .

Reference < XSpreadSheetDocument> lxDocument (lxComponent ,UNO_QUERY);
Reference < XMultiServiceFactory> lxSpreadSheetFactory(lxDocument ,UNO_QUERY);

Then I am trying to get all links from service :

Reference< XNameAccess> lxNameAccess = 
Reference< XNameAccess> (lxSpreadSheetFactory->createInstance(OUString( RTL_CONSTASCII_USTRINGPARAM(""))),UNO_QUERY );

On executing this I get lxNameAccess variable as NULL. So how can i access all referenced links in my sheet ?? Is there any other way to get all links in a sheet through api ??

I have also printed all the services using:

Sequence< OUString> links = lxSpreadSheetFactory->getAvailableServicenames().

But did not find service name in the list. Same is the case for service.

Are these services not implemented by Libre Office ?? is there any other way to get list of all referenced links in a document ??

SheetLinks is a sheet.SpreadsheetDocument property returning an XNameAccess interface and not available from XMultiServiceFactory.

CellAreaLinks is a sheet.SpreadsheetDocument property returning an XAreaLinks interface.

ExternalDocLinks is not exported at all. Note that neither ExternalDocLinks nor XExternalDocLinks are marked as published.
