[Solved] [Python] Improve MsgBox aspect

Post by El Catala »

Hello,


I have the function below which allows me to display a message.

Code: Select all

def MessageBox( box_type: int, buttons: int, title: str, message: str) -> int: 
    ctx = uno.getComponentContext()
    smgr = ctx.getServiceManager()
    DESK = 'com.sun.star.frame.Desktop'
    desktop = smgr.createInstanceWithContext(DESK , ctx)
    frame = desktop.getCurrentFrame()
    window = frame.getContainerWindow()
    toolkit = window.getToolkit()
    messagebox = toolkit.createMessageBox(window, box_type, buttons, title, message)
    return messagebox.execute()
I would like to improve its appearance by playing on its position and the dimensions of the font.

Is it possible ?


cordially

One can do almost anything in Python; you may need to explore Tkinter (sometimes tkinter, depending on python version in use). This permits a very complete customisation of input and output displays in python.

Make your own dialog. All a message box is is a very simple dialog with a message and a choice of a small number of buttons... you can re-create that yourself easily and change it however.

with all my apologies, I did not specify that the script was launched from Libre Office.
TKinter is therefore not usable.

With a dialog MyMacros.Standard.Dialog1 in the Basic IDE

Code: Select all

g_URL = "vnd.sun.star.script:Standard.Dialog1?location=application"
def Test_Dialog1_modal(**args):
    smgr = uno.getComponentContext().getServiceManager()
    dp = smgr.createInstance('com.sun.star.awt.DialogProvider')
    dlg = dp.createDialog(g_URL)
    dlg.setPosSize(100,100, 500, 400, 15)
    x = dlg.execute()
this shows the dialog near the top-left corner of the screen (x=100, y=100), 500 units wide, 400 units high (don't know which units right now).
x == 1 when the OK button has been clicked (button type = OK), x == 0 otherwise.

Hello,

It is therefore confirmed that MsgBox cannot be positioned according to the user.
Thank you for your help and will therefore direct me to a dialog box.

Good luck and thank you

[BASIC] Resizable dialog
I would replace
ThisComponent.getCurrentController().getFrame()
with
StarDesktop.getCurrentFrame()
so the code can be tested from the IDE without needing any document window.
