I just noticed that the
"Start Application" and
"Close Application" events are not listed anymore in the
Likewise it appears that some other Application events are also missing ( see screenshot ).
In my previous versions of LibreOffice the “Start Application” and “Close Application” events used to be available, my current version is 188.8.131.52.
- Is this normal for version 184.108.40.206 running on Ubuntu 17.04 ?
- How can i get the “Start Application” and “Close Application” events back into the Event list ?
Thanks in advance, lib.
EDIT 2017-09-14 Further findings:
At this moment, the “Start Application” and “Close Application” events are still missing from the list of events on the dialog “Tools : Customize… : Events ( LibreOffice )”.
The event names for these two events are stated here as “OnStartApp” and “OnCloseApp” respectively.
The same two events ( “OnStartApp” and “OnCloseApp” ) are also missing from the list of events returned by the GlobalEventBroadcaster’s function getEvents().getElementNames().
However, when i programmatically assign a script to the “OnStartApp” event using the GlobalEventBroadcaster’s function getEvents().replaceByName(), then
- .getEvents().hasByName( “OnStartApp” ) returns True,
- .getEvents().getByName( “OnStartApp” ) returns a property set containing the correct script uri that i assigned,
- and the assigned script is succesfully called when the application starts.
Yet after assigning the script in this way, it is still not listed in .getElementNames() nor in the GUI.
i could set the application event using this macro:
set_Application_Event( "OnStartApp", "Standard", "LibreOffice", "Open_Most_Recent_Document" )
Sub set_Application_Event( sEventName as String, sLibrary As String, sModule As String, sFunction As String ) REM Connects the specified Application Event to the specified Basic macro. REM <sEventName>: The Name of the Application Event to connect a macro to. REM <sLibrary> : The Name of the Library that contains the module <sModule>. REM <sModule> : The Name of the Module that contains the method <sFunction>. REM <sFunction> : The Name of the Method to be connected to the specified Application Event. Dim aProps(1) As New com.sun.star.beans.PropertyValue aProps(0).Name = "EventType" aProps(0).Value = "Script" aProps(1).Name = "Script" aProps(1).Value = "vnd.sun.star.script:" & sLibrary & "." & sModule & "." & sFunction & "?language=Basic&location=application" Dim oGlobalEventBroadcaster As Object oGlobalEventBroadcaster = GetDefaultContext().getByName( "/singletons/com.sun.star.frame.theGlobalEventBroadcaster" ) oGlobalEventBroadcaster.Events.replaceByName( sEventName, aProps() ) msgbox sEventName & " connected to: " & oGlobalEventBroadcaster.Events.getByName( sEventName )(1).Value, 64, "Set Application Event" End Sub
