service TypeDescriptionManager
Description
This service manages type descriptions and acts as a central access point to every type description. It delegates calls for demanded types to subsequent TypeDescriptionProviders and may cache type descriptions.
Using cppuhelper's bootstrapping routines bootstrapping an initial component context, there is a singleton accessable via key "/singletons/com.sun.star.reflection.theTypeDescriptionManager". This singleton object is hooked into the C UNO runtime typelib and lives until the context is shut down.

XTypeDescriptionEnumerationAccess

Interface for creating enumerations for type descriptions supported by this TypeDescriptionManager (details)

Exported Interfaces - Details
::com::sun::star::container::XHierarchicalNameAccess
Description
Interface to retrieve type descriptions.
  • Names are given in dotted notation, for example "com.sun.star.uno.XInterface".
  • Sequence types are accessible via "[]ComponentType"
  • Instantiated polymorphic struct types are accessible via "StructType<Parameter1,…,Parametern>".
  • Members of interface types are accessible via "InterfaceType::Member".

The returned values are of interface type XTypeDescription.

Even though the name of this interface suggests that the used type names are hierarchic, this need not be the case. (For example, consider the names of instantiated polymorphic struct types, like "Struct<long>".)
