The window interfaces of the component window and container window control the Apache OpenOffice application windows. This chapter provides a short overview.


The interface is supported by the component and controller windows. This interface comprises methods to resize a window, control its visibility, enable and disable it, and make it the focus for input device events. Listeners are informed about window events.

  [oneway] void setPosSize ( long X, long Y, long Width, long Height, short Flags ); 
  com::sun::star::awt::Rectangle getPosSize (); 
  [oneway] void setVisible ( boolean Visible ); 
  [oneway] void setEnable ( boolean Enable ); 
  [oneway] void setFocus (); 
  [oneway] void addWindowListener ( com::sun::star::awt::XWindowListener xListener ); 
  [oneway] void removeWindowListener ( com::sun::star::awt::XWindowListener xListener ); 
  [oneway] void addFocusListener ( com::sun::star::awt::XFocusListener xListener ); 
  [oneway] void removeFocusListener ( com::sun::star::awt::XFocusListener xListener ); 
  [oneway] void addKeyListener ( com::sun::star::awt::XKeyListener xListener ); 
  [oneway] void removeKeyListener ( com::sun::star::awt::XKeyListener xListener ); 
  [oneway] void addMouseListener ( com::sun::star::awt::XMouseListener xListener ); 
  [oneway] void removeMouseListener ( com::sun::star::awt::XMouseListener xListener ); 
  [oneway] void addMouseMotionListener ( com::sun::star::awt::XMouseMotionListener xListener ); 
  [oneway] void removeMouseMotionListener ( com::sun::star::awt::XMouseMotionListener xListener ); 
  [oneway] void addPaintListener ( com::sun::star::awt::XPaintListener xListener ); 
  [oneway] void removePaintListener ( com::sun::star::awt::XPaintListener xListener );

The gets the following notifications. The has members describing the size and position of the window.

  [oneway] void windowResized ( [in] com::sun::star::awt::WindowEvent e )
  [oneway] void windowMoved ( [in] com::sun::star::awt::WindowEvent e )
  [oneway] void windowShown ( [in] com::sun::star::lang::EventObject e )
  [oneway] void windowHidden ( [in] com::sun::star::lang::EventObject e );

What the other listeners do are evident by their names.


The interface is available at container windows. It informs listeners about top window events, and it can put itself in front of other windows or withdraw into the background. It also has a method to control the current menu bar:

  [oneway] void addTopWindowListener ( com::sun::star::awt::XTopWindowListener xListener ); 
  [oneway] void removeTopWindowListener ( com::sun::star::awt::XTopWindowListener xListener ); 
  [oneway] void toFront (); 
  [oneway] void toBack (); 
  [oneway] void setMenuBar ( com::sun::star::awt::XMenuBar xMenu );
Documentation note.png Although the XTopWindow interface has a method setMenuBar(), this method is not usable at this time. The interface is deprecated.

The top window listener receives the following messages. All methods take a

  [oneway] void windowOpened ( [in] com::sun::star::lang::EventObject e )
  [oneway] void windowClosing ( [in] com::sun::star::lang::EventObject e )
  [oneway] void windowClosed ( [in] com::sun::star::lang::EventObject e )
  [oneway] void windowMinimized ( [in] com::sun::star::lang::EventObject e )
  [oneway] void windowNormalized ( [in] com::sun::star::lang::EventObject e )
  [oneway] void windowActivated ( [in] com::sun::star::lang::EventObject e )
  [oneway] void windowDeactivated ( [in] com::sun::star::lang::EventObject e )


Each XWindow has a The interface accesses the window toolkit implementation used to create it and provides the pointer of the pointing device, and controls the background color. It is also used to invalidate a window or portions of it to trigger a redraw cycle.

  com::sun::star::awt::XToolkit getToolkit ()
  [oneway] void setPointer ( [in] com::sun::star::awt::XPointer Pointer )
  [oneway] void setBackground ( [in] long Color ) 
  [oneway] void invalidate ( [in] short Flags )
  [oneway] void invalidateRect ( [in] com::sun::star::awt::Rectangle Rect, 
  [in] short Flags )
