This NetBeans project contains a sample Apache OpenOffice extension. The extension demonstrates how to add a custom options page within the existing options pages of Writer.

The extension uses a custom registry schema to store configuration values. Additionally the extension shows how to add a custom help for an extension.


You will find the source code of this extension in the OpenOffice.org Subversion repository:

 svn export http://svn.services.openoffice.org/ooo/contrib/sdk/examples/java/OptionsPageDemo
  • dialogs: contains the xdl dialog file for the option page. Can be edited using Apache OpenOffices built-in dialog editor (see macros).
  • registry: contains the customized registry files for storing the configuration values of this extension.
  • src: the Java sourcecode of the extension.
  • help: the xhp help files that are integrated into AOo's help system.


Open the project via NetBeans (you need the OpenOffice.org plugin version 2.x or higher), right-click on the project and press "Deploy and run extension in OpenOffice.org". If you do not trust this extension, better press "Debug extension..." as this omitts you local user settings.
