I am writing a python macro that runs inside of libreoffice (as opposed to externally via the pyuno bridge). The code calls insertByIndex on an XIndexContainer, created by createSettings on an XUIConfigurationManager, which I am trying to use to define a custom toolbar and toolbar items in writer. According to this source a Sequence maps to a tuple in python. However, when I pass a tuple of PropertyValues, I instead get an IllegalArgumentException which says that I need to pass a css::uno::Sequence< css::beans::PropertyValue >. However, I am passing a tuple filled with PropertyValues, which should meet that definition. What data structure do I need to pass to the insertByIndex function, or how can I accomplish something similar in python? I am following listing 5.109 from Andrew Pitonyak’s English Macros document, and am trying to convert it to python.
Here is the code which causes said error (I run the createToolbar function with “test” as the only input):
Here is the error that happens when I run the code:
com.sun.star.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Type must be css::uno::Sequence< css::beans::PropertyValue > (Error during invoking function test2 in module file:///home/otis/.config/libreoffice/4/user/Scripts/python/debate.py (<class ‘uno.com.sun.star.lang.IllegalArgumentException’>: Type must be css::uno::Sequence< css::beans::PropertyValue >
