Hi Andreas,

Your Star Basic macro looks very interesting. It is not super complex (initialization, a loop, and 
a super simple supporting function). Has anyone given it a test drive?

As I read the macro, the while loop looks suspect. Isn't it testing the length of a directory name 
[ dir("path/file.ext") ] instead of a file name? And, won't it operate on no more than one entity? 
I thought the idea was to automatically open zero or more office document files when soffice starts 

It also could probably be made more robust by adding a supporting function that validates the 
file's extension. Just a thought.

Sub onApplicationStart()
   oSrv = createUnoService("")
   sPath = PathConcat(oSrv.Work, "AutoStart")
   sDir = PathConcat(sPath, "*.*")
   s = dir(sDir)
   while len(s)
      sPathName = PathConcat(sPath,s)
      StarDesktop.loadComponentFromURL(sPathName, "_blank", 0, Array())
      s = dir()
End Sub

Function PathConcat(s1, s2)
   if right(s1,1) <> "/" then s1 = s1 & "/"
   PathConcat = s1 & s2
End Function
