The StarBasic is a very simple Basic programming language and IDE. There is not any miracle around it. Some simple commands and statements, nothing more.

The essentials are in the API functions.

Therefore, my immediate logical question would be: How and where to find The Complete StarBasic BasicLibraries online reference? Does one exist?

I have read the OpenOffice.org BASIC Programming Guide, Andrew Pitonyak's Macro Book and Documentation of OpenOffice BASIC objects, etc.

What other stuff do you need for the usage of the StarBasic?
Read and study the HELP inside the Basic IDE of the AOO/LO.

StarBasic is a language. It is fully documented in the F1-help.

UNO is the thing you talk to in StarBasic, Python, Java, C++ or some other language. Here you find the complete online documentation on UNO: https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Docume ... pers_Guide (1.200 PDF pages). You need some programming experience before you are able understand that. This is not for beginners. Forget it.

Yes, Mr. Villeroy, F1 doesn't help as there are Uno components.
I had downloaded the pdf book, (Developer's Guide -- All Chapters) shortly after I joined this forum. I have extensively been searching and networking between various areas.

You have to mentally assimilate and integrate all these components; it may come down to writing simple test programs to check if the UNO component you need works with BASIC or your chosen programming language.
