Detailed Description

grants access to certain aspects of the user interface of an object inspector

This interface is used as callback for XPropertyHandlers.

As a consequence, methods operating on the UI for a property, and taking the name of this property, are tolerant against properties which do not exist. For instance, if a property handler tries to disable the UI for property Foo, but another handler has superseded this property, then the ObjectInspector will not have any UI for it. In this case, the call to enablePropertyUI( "Foo" ) will simply be ignored.

Since
OOo 2.0.3

Member Function Documentation

void enablePropertyUI ( [in] string  PropertyName,
[in] boolean  Enable 
)

enables or disables all components belonging to the UI representation of a property

This is usually used by an XPropertyHandler if it handles properties, where one does only make sense if another one has a certain value.

Parameters
PropertyNamedenotes the name of the property whose UI is to be enabled or disabled.
EnableTRUE if and only if the UI should be disabled, FALSE otherwise.
void enablePropertyUIElements ( [in] string  PropertyName,
[in] short  Elements,
[in] boolean  Enable 
)

enables or disables the single elements which can be part of the UI representation of a property

Note that the complete UI for the property must be enabled in order for these settings to be evaluated. That is, enablePropertyUIElements() does not have any effect if somebody previously disabled the complete UI for this property with enablePropertyUI().

Parameters
PropertyNamethe name of the property whose user interface elements are to be enabled or disabled
Elementsa combination of PropertyLineElement flags specifying which elements are to be enabled or disabled.
Note that if you don't set a particular bit here (say, PropertyLineElement::PrimaryButton), this does mean that this element's state is not affected by the call - it does not mean that it is disabled.
EnableTRUE if the elements denoted by _nElements should be enabled, FALSE if they should be disabled.
XPropertyControl getPropertyControl ( [in] string  PropertyName)

retrieves the control currently used to display a given property

Parameters
PropertyNamethe name of the property whose control should be retrieved
Returns
the XPropertyControl representing the given property, or NULL if there is no such property control.
void hidePropertyUI ( [in] string  PropertyName)

hides the UI for a given property

Parameters
PropertyNamethe name of the property whose UI is to be hidden
void rebuildPropertyUI ( [in] string  PropertyName)

completely rebuilds the UI for the given property.

This method might be used by an XPropertyHandler if it wants to change the type of control (see PropertyControlType) used to display a certain property.

The object inspector will then call describePropertyLine again, and update its UI accordingly.

Note that the property whose UI should be rebuilt must not necessarily be (though usually is) in the responsibility of the handler which calls this method. The object inspector will look up the handler with the responsibility for PropertyName and call its XPropertyHandler::describePropertyLine()

Parameters
PropertyNamethe name of the property whose UI is to be completely rebuilt.
void registerControlObserver ( [in] XPropertyControlObserver  Observer)

registers an observer for all property controls

The given XPropertyControlObserver will be notified of all changes in all property controls.

void setHelpSectionText ( [in] string  HelpText)
raises (::com::sun::star::lang::NoSupportException

Exceptions

[in] boolean  Show 
)

shows or hides all properties belonging to a given category

Parameters
