I've tried to implement the simple example shown in the Calc Help system for
the Declare Statement. Somewhere it expects to find a file: user32.dll but
I have no idea where to find it. Windows has many user32.dll files for
it's own use but presumably none of them are relevant to LibreOffice.The
file does not seem to be included in the DLL files that install with Libre.
So does it need to be downloaded from the web somewhere and manually
installed?I'm just trying to understand how to link Basic to a DLL file so I
can go off and do something more complex. Thanks.Bill
The point is that the user32.dll file is not relevant to LibreOffice,
yet you should be able to call methods in it.
What is your operating system? Obviously it is Windows, so, which
version of windows? 7, 8?
What error do you receive if you try to run the following macro?
Declare Sub MyMessageBeep Lib "user32.dll" Alias "MessageBeep" ( Long )
Declare Function CharUpper Lib "user32.dll" Alias "CharUpperA"_
(ByVal lpsz As String) As String
REM Convert a string to uppercase
Dim strIn As String
Dim strOut As String
strIn = "i Have Upper and Lower"
strOut = CharUpper(strIn)
MsgBox "Converted:" & CHR$(10) & strIn & CHR$(10) &_
"To:" & CHR$(10) & strOut, 0, "Call a DLL Function"
REM On my computer, this plays a system sound
Dim nBeepLen As Long
nBeepLen = 5000
