Creating Wizards

This workshop would be about the practical steps to create an wizard.

Describe an (existing) PDF-converterthat roughly contains about 1000 lines of sourcecode and converts documents to PDF format.

In this workshop the following topics will be handled:

  • Design of graphical user interfaces based on API and (maybe) also other platforms like Java Swing.
  • Where do I get API related Information - work with the OpenOffice-SDK, interface and service descriptions. In this context I will also introduce the object inspector
as a helpful extension to inspect Uno -objects during runtime
  • Remote control of an Office application.
  • Practical use of services and interfaces.
