Dialog doesn't show up for Filter Extension

Postby maninc » Tue Jun 30, 2015 9:43 am


I am writing a C++ filter extension for DOCX file format. I need to get some information from user before opening the document, After that default DOCX filter will be used.
I was able to create a filter which can open DOCX files. Also created XDL file using Basic Dialog editor.
Now when I try to use this XDL file, I don't see any dialog opening up.

I tried to follow the directions in http://openoffice.2283327.n4.nabble.com/help-with-dialog-boxes-td3026585.html
But I couldn't get it working yet.

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sal_Int16 SAL_CALL SimpleDialog::execute() throw ( RuntimeException )
    Reference< XDialogProvider > xDialogProvider(
                mxServiceFactory->createInstanceWithContext( C2U("com.sun.star.awt.DialogProvider2"), mxContext), UNO_QUERY_THROW );
    OUString sXDLPath = getFilterInstallPath();
    sXDLPath += C2U("xdl/SimpleDialog.xdl");
    mxDialog = Reference< XDialog> (xDialogProvider->createDialog(sXDLPath), UNO_QUERY_THROW);
    Reference< XControl > xControl(mxDialog, UNO_QUERY_THROW);
    short nRet = mxDialog->execute();
    return mRet;

I get a valid xdl file path in sXDLPath, File path starts with "file://" instead of "vnd.sun.star.extension://" Is this OK ?
Is there any mistake in the code snippet above?

Because, If I create dialog programatically, it works fine. Problem happens only when I use XDL file.

Thanks in advance!
