Detailed Description

specifies a user interface element factory that can create and initialize user interface elements.

User interface element factories must be registered at a UIElementFactoryManager service to provide access to itself.

Currently the following user interface element types are defined:

Since
OOo 2.0

◆ createUIElement()

creates a new instances of a specific user interface element.

Parameters
ResourceURLspecifies which unique user interface element should be created by the factory. A resource URL must meet the following syntax: "private:resource/$type/$name. It is only allowed to use ASCII characters for type and name. This argument must not be empty to have a working user interface element instance.The implementation can throw an com::sun::star::container::NoSuchElementException if it doesn't know how to create the request user interface element.
ArgsThe following arguments are supported:
  • Frame
    specifies the com::sun::star::frame::XFrame instance to which the user interface element belongs to. To create a configurable user interface element the frame instance must contain a visible component. Otherwise it is not possible to determine the correct user interface configuration manager. This argument is mandatory to have a working configurable user interface element instance.
  • ParentWindow
    specifies a parent window to use for the window(s) representing the UI element. Depending on the concrete UI element type, this parameter might be required or ignored by an implementation.
  • Persistent
    specifies if changes to a configurable user interface element should be persistent. This is an optional argument. The default value is TRUE.
  • Module
    specifies the current module name (as a string). May be empty.
  • Controller
    (Sidebar only) specifies the current com::sun::star::frame::XController2 instance. May be empty.
  • Canvas
    (Sidebar only) specifies the current com::sun::star::rendering::XSpriteCanvas instance.
  • ApplicationName
    (Sidebar only) Specifies the current application name (as a string)
  • ContextName
    (Sidebar only) Specifies the current context (as a string)

An implementation is responsible to initialize every newly created user interface element if the necessary properties are provided. Especially it must connect a configurable user interface element to the correct user interface configuration manager. Without this connection the configurable user interface element cannot retrieve its structure data and changes to the user interface element structure won't be persistent. It is up to the implementation to throw an com::sun::star::lang::IllegalArgumentException if it cannot create a user interface element with the provided arguments.
