Subject RE: Query on C++ UCB XInteractionHandler interface - is it possible to have/write a non-UI-based interface to respond on?
Date Sat, 06 Feb 2016 18:48:03 GMT
Thanks Stephen,

I've been looking at interactionhandler.cxx today and I believe the best way
forward is to take the uui source implementation as a base and then
refactor, replacing all of the XDialog-derived classes with classes that
query for the same information through an interface passed in as part of a
custom method called on startup. There are only about 10 or so dialogs and
some message boxes as well that need to be dealt with.

That should take care of removing all of the GUI within the uui code, and
then it's just down to tracking down other UI elements (Certificate Viewers
etc) in external modules and rewrite that code as well.


Does anyone know of any UCB provider code been written for commercial
hosting services - DropBox, Google, Microsoft offerings etc? - It would be
good to be able to leverage off of it.


Regards,

John

Yeah, you need to implement your own XInteractionHandler.  The general one
in uui/source/interactionhandler.cxx is indeed designed for GUI interaction,
but there is e.g. 
desktop/source/lib/lokinteractionhandler.cxx in the LibreOffice code base
that is an example of a more programmatic handling of interaction requests.
