I did not test your code but I found the problem in the queryDIspatch method:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
    // com.sun.star.frame.XDispatchProvider:
    public com.sun.star.frame.XDispatch queryDispatch( com.sun.star.util.URL aURL,
                                                       String sTargetFrameName,
                                                       int iSearchFlags )
    {
        if ( aURL.Protocol.equals("org.openoffice.testaddon.testaddon:") )
        {
            if ( aURL.Path.equals("mycommands") )
                return this;
        }
        return null;
    }

You have "org.openoffice.testaddon.testaddon:Hello World" command in Addons.xcu file of URL property, so its protocol is org.openoffice.testaddon.testaddon and its path is "Hello World" (it should be written in URL notation, so you should encode space characters). In the queryDispatch method, you are testing the path with "mycommands" and always false.

The dispatch framework tries to query the dispatch through the css.frame.XDispatchProvider interface if the command is there in the menu item that contains the protocol registered in the list of protocol handlers. If the queryDispatch method returns valid css.frame.XDispatch interface, the entry is enabled but if it returns invalid one, it is disabled.
Please, edit this thread's initial post and add "[Solved]" to the subject line if your problem has been solved.

I need to learn about using GUI controls in extension.
It is documented in [1] and you can find some examples in this forum. If you need dialogs, I suppose you to search in term "createDialog" method.

Can we using SWInG/AWT for that purpose, if yes the I need to know some sample/tutorial/Documentation in this regard.
I have see an example in dev@[2].
