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
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
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
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
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?
You need used MasterScriptProviderFactory
Change the original Basic function to:
Function ColorExampleFunc(r As Integer, g As Integer, b As Integer) As
ColorExampleFunc = RGB(r, g, b)
Then you can call, look my example:
