Simple generation of Messageboxes and Inputboxes using Java? [closed]

asked 2016-12-01 16:01:13 +0200

Using Java and the LibreOffice SDK, is there a simple way to generate messageboxes and inputboxes similar to the commands in LibreOffice Basic?

Alternatively, does anyone know of existing Java classes for performing these functions? I've searched quite a bit but haven't found any. :(

I'm prepared to carve up the Developer's Guide example UnoDialogSample ( to roll my own, but I'd rather not have to go to the trouble...

Found a messagebox class at

Update: The messagebox class at the site noted above is actually a large example and includes a main function to enable running it as a stand-alone program. Using that class as starting point, I developed a messagebox class with only about 10% of the code as in the exemplary class. The newly developed class is available at

Update: An inputbox class, crafted from the aforementioned UnoDialogSample, is now available at It's considerably longer than the messagebox class since LibreOffice provides no XInputBoxFactory and XInputBox analogous to the XMessageBoxFactory and XMessageBox.
