doc OOo
Documentation caution.png The original author wants you to know that: "I have decided to give up with this C++ documentation. My last work was to add two chapters in summer 2009. I have done nothing more during last year. I only want to say this document is completely free, unfortunately is not finished (particularly with add-on and dialog).

Tip.png I want first thank all the contributors given above and probably many others.

The first time I have made SDK working was in May 2004. A month later I began to write this document with no skills on UNO (only few lines of OOoBasic programs) and very few skills on C++ programming language. To put it differently, I have learned UNO and C++ when writing this document. It is probably easy to see that when reading old chapters. Even new chapters (July 2009) Managing a Dialog in a Component and Going further with Dialog and Components are written with explaining how I make things working. Then you can find remarks on things I finally solved : the best is probably to remove these remarks when the corresponding problems are solved. If anybody wants to reformat this document, there is no problem, this document is completely free.

The other great problem is English faults. My English is very bad, and it would be great that somebody take a while to correct faults : it is a very easy task with a WIKI document.

I have not respected the presentation norm of OpenOffice.org documents. See for instance the Developer's Guide or OOoBasic Guide. Every chapter of this document is a page, and it would be probably better to cut every chapters so that every section becomes a page.

I hope this document will become a great source of inspirations particularly for those in charge of teaching the C++ language programming. I hope it is easy now to give projects for students around OpenOffice components and dialogs now documented. I cannot give such projects to my students because they are undergraduate and only learn C programming with great difficulties. One idea of project is to write an OpenOffice component which is able to start from a GUI Dialog and automatically generates all the C++ code for a component running such a dialog. In other words a GLADE-like for OpenOffice.
