Frequently Asked Questions for the Office Scripting Framework

Questions

  1. I have removed the examples provided with the Script Framework installation and installed my own but the script in ExampleSpreadSheet.sxc still works. Why?

  2. How can I store menu or key bindings for scripting in a document?

  3. Why is there a delay in starting the first script?

  4. Why do I have to use one dialog to work with StarBasic macros [Tools/ Configure] and another to work with my new Java scripts [Assign Script...]?

Answers

  1. I have removed the examples provided with the Script Framework installation and installed my own but the script in ExampleSpreadSheet.sxc still works. Why?

    Both the script and the Key bindings are contained in the document itself, at the moment the [Assign Script] dialog does not display scripts or bindings stored in documents.

  2. How can I store a script, menu or key bindings for scripting in a document?

  1. Why is there a delay in starting the first script?

    The delay is caused by the startup of the inprocess JVM by OpenOffice.

  2. Why do I have to use one dialog to work with StarBasic macros [Tools/ Configure] and another to work with my new Java scripts [Assign Script...]?

    The StarBasic macros are completely separate from and do not use the Scripting Framework. As such they use their own configuration and settings dialogs. In the future the Scripting Framework and StarBasic dialogs will be integrated so users have one consistnet way of working with macros/ scripts, regardless of which language they have been written it.
