[Closed] A detailed API information database for Basic?

Postby rajibando » Sun Jul 30, 2017 7:15 pm

Hi!
While Zizi64 is working to help me solve my macro related problem -- and I have to give him time in order for him to help me -- I would be eager to know as to whether like theOracle Java API information DatabaseOverview there is a similar database for Basic and UNO APIs? And whether it is eminently readable?
I have recently found that if I come across these four API definitions/descriptions independently in the Oracle Java API database Overview:
  • PrintStream java.lang.System.out
  • void java.io.PrintStream.println(String x)
  • java.util.Arrays
  • String java.util.Arrays.toString(Object[] a)
I wouldn't be in a position to know that they could be weaved together into a meaningful form:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
System.out.println(Arrays.toString(args));
unless I have specific examples and experience in programming in Java.

I therefore would like to know whether this is also the case for the UNO API database if there is one?!

The OpenOffice API information is accessible through
http://www.openoffice.org/api/

I don't think it can be described as "eminently readable". Pray for divine inspiration.

There is no Basic-API. The API is the same for StarBasic, Python, Java, JavaScript and various COM-languages and it has self-documenting interfaces.
