I started experimenting with calling a basic function from a python
script. I was surprised that without to much trouble I got it to work
to a certain extent.
I am working on linux Mint.
I started with a basic Sub I found. In it's original form it had 3 rgb
values hard coded and it popped up a message box that displayed the
color value from the rgb input. I rewrote it as a Function that took
the rgb values as parameters.
Here is the basic:
Function ColorExampleFunc(r as long, g as long, b as long)
Dim lVar As Long
lVar = rgb(207,231,245)
msgbox "The color " & lVar & " consists of:" & Chr(13) &_
"red= " & red(lVar) & Chr(13)&_
"green= " & green(lVar) & Chr(13)&_
"blue= " & blue(lVar) & Chr(13) , 64,"colors"
Here is the python:
result = os.system('soffice
This works as it will pop up the message box with the color value
displayed. What I need to do is capture that color value (which is
usually an eight digit number) in variable in the python script.
I printed result and it was equal to 0.
It's been a long time since I did anything in basic. I imagine I would
have to get rid of the msgbox code and set the rgb values equal to a
variable and then return them, but I'm not sure how to do it.
Does anyone know how to get the color value in the python script?
