[Solved] Export Writer document page to JPEG in JAVA

Postby pashamacel » Thu Jun 18, 2015 1:36 pm


I use java uno api 3.2.1 and try to convert my Writer document page into JPEG file. I use the next code for this:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
XComponentLoader cLoader = getLoader();
    final Map<String, Object> defaultLoadProperties = new HashMap<String, Object>();
    defaultLoadProperties.put("Hidden", Boolean.TRUE);
    defaultLoadProperties.put("ReadOnly", Boolean.TRUE);

    XComponent sourceDoc = cLoader.loadComponentFromURL(loadUrl, "_blank", 0, toPropertyValues(defaultLoadProperties));
    try {
      XTextDocument xTextDocument = UnoRuntime.queryInterface(XTextDocument.class, sourceDoc);
      XDrawPageSupplier xDrawPagesSupplier = UnoRuntime.queryInterface(XDrawPageSupplier.class, xTextDocument);
      XDrawPage page = xDrawPagesSupplier.getDrawPage();
      XComponent xComp = UnoRuntime.queryInterface(XComponent.class, page);
      Object exportFilter = getServiceManager().createInstanceWithContext("com.sun.star.drawing.GraphicExportFilter", ooConnection);
      XExporter xExporter = UnoRuntime.queryInterface(XExporter.class, exportFilter);
      XFilter xFilter = UnoRuntime.queryInterface(XFilter.class, xExporter);

      PropertyValue aFilterData_thumb[] = new PropertyValue[2];
      aFilterData_thumb[0] = new PropertyValue();
      aFilterData_thumb[0].Name = "PixelWidth";
      aFilterData_thumb[0].Value = 1241;

      aFilterData_thumb[1] = new PropertyValue();
      aFilterData_thumb[1].Name = "PixelHeight";
      aFilterData_thumb[1].Value = 1753;

      PropertyValue aProps_thumb[] = new PropertyValue[3];
      aProps_thumb[0] = new PropertyValue();
      aProps_thumb[0].Name = "MediaType";
      aProps_thumb[0].Value = "image/jpeg";

      aProps_thumb[1] = new PropertyValue();
      aProps_thumb[1].Name = "URL";
      aProps_thumb[1].Value = storeUrl;

      aProps_thumb[2] = new PropertyValue();
      aProps_thumb[2].Name = "FilterData";
      aProps_thumb[2].Value = aFilterData_thumb;

    } finally {

As a result I get an empty (white background) JPEG file ((((. Please, tell me what am I doing wrong.
P.S. Manually (by OO menu) I can export to JPEG correctly

The OO (Apache OpenOffice) have not .jpg export function. (The LibreOffice have .jpg (and .png) export function.)

You can export the first page or the selected text (recorded Basic code):

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sub W2jpg
rem ----------------------------------------------------------------------
rem define variables
dim document   as object
dim dispatcher as object
rem ----------------------------------------------------------------------
rem get access to the document
document   = ThisComponent.CurrentController.Frame
dispatcher = createUnoService("com.sun.star.frame.DispatchHelper")

rem ----------------------------------------------------------------------
dim args1(3) as new com.sun.star.beans.PropertyValue
args1(0).Name = "URL"
args1(0).Value = "file:///C:/Documents... ... writer2picture.jpg"
args1(1).Name = "FilterName"
args1(1).Value = "writer_jpg_Export"
args1(2).Name = "FilterData"
args1(2).Value = Array(Array("PixelWidth",0,793,com.sun.star.beans.PropertyState.DIRECT_VALUE),Array("PixelHeight",0,1122,com.sun.star.beans.PropertyState.DIRECT_VALUE))
args1(3).Name = "SelectionOnly"
args1(3).Value = true

dispatcher.executeDispatch(document, ".uno:ExportTo", "", 0, args1())
end sub
