Hi all. I need to restart office after changing UI language (so as real application behaves). So I found XRestartManager ( which has requestRestart method I wanted to try.

But, when I run following code:

            import uno
            restart_manager = uno.getClass("")()

I have got

AttributeError: '' object has no attribute 'requestRestart'

Maybe there are some another way to perform app restart. Any advices might be helpfull. Thank you!

Use the component context to get the singleton.

ctx = XSCRIPTCONTEXT.getComponentContext()
restartManager = ctx.getValueByName(
if not restartManager.isRestartRequested(False):

According to, it didn't use to restart. But it works now, so the full implementation must have been added at some point.

Hi, looking to call a restart from a base form after user completes an input box. Not familiar with Python, how can I do this with a basic macro ? Thanks for your thoughts
