specifies a rectangular shape which contains a Text object
and is attached to a piece of surrounding Text.
This example shows how to create a TextFrame and insert
it at the very beginning of Text component. The macro
is ready to run, if it is a script within a text document.
oFrame = ThisComponent.createInstance( "com.sun.star.text.TextFrame" )
oFrame.Width = 6000
ThisComponent.Text.insertTextContent( ThisComponent.Text.Start, oFrame, false )
oFrame.Text.String = "Hello, this text is within the frame."
controls, if the frame follows the text flow or can leave its layout environment
If set, the frame follows the text flow and doesn't leaves the layout
environment, which is given by its anchor, above and below.
E.g.: Anchor resides in the document body then the frame doesn't leave
the document body above and below and follows the text flow through
the document bodies of the different pages.
If not set, the frame doesn't follow the text flow and stays on the page,
on which its anchor is found, but it may leave the layout environment,
which is given by its anchor.
E.g.: Anchor resides in the document body then the frame stays on page,
where this document body is, but it could leave the document body above
and below, e.g. overlapping with the page header.
Note: The areas for the vertical orientation relation at page areas are
interpreted in dependence to this property (
If property is set, the page area is interpreted as the layout environment,
given by its anchor. E.g.: Anchor resides in the page header then the
page header determines the page area. If property isn't set, the page area is
determined by the document page, the anchor is on. E.g.: Anchor resides
in the page header then the document page, the page header is on, determines
the page area.
An exception of this interpretation rule is applied, if the anchor resides
in a table cell. In this situation the page area is always detemined by
the table cell.
