Since OpenOffice.org 2.3 the context for UI configuration has grown up to 20 modules. This was mainly due to the new feature that allows OpenOffice.org Base to have separated UI configuration modules for database forms and database reports, so that the settings are not shared with text documents anymore.

List of available modules

The following is an up-to-date list of available modules with a short description:

Module name Description
com.sun.star.text.TextDocument OpenOffice.org Writer
com.sun.star.text.WebDocument OpenOffice.org Writer/Web
com.sun.star.text.GlobalDocument OpenOffice.org Writer/Master Document
com.sun.star.sheet.SpreadsheetDocument OpenOffice.org Calc
com.sun.star.presentation.PresentationDocument OpenOffice.org Impress
com.sun.star.drawing.DrawingDocument OpenOffice.org Draw

How to get the module's names

You can get a list of modules by querying the service com.sun.star.frame.ModuleManager.

Example in Java:

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        try {
            com.sun.star.uno.XComponentContext xContext = 
            com.sun.star.uno.XInterface xInterface = 
                            "com.sun.star.frame.ModuleManager", xContext);
            com.sun.star.container.XNameAccess xNameAccess = 
                            com.sun.star.container.XNameAccess.class, xInterface);
            String[] modules = xNameAccess.getElementNames();
            for (String module : modules) {
                System.out.println( module );
        } catch (com.sun.star.comp.helper.BootstrapException e){
        } catch (com.sun.star.uno.Exception e){
        } catch (java.lang.Exception e){
        } finally {
            System.exit( 0 );

Example in OpenOffice.org Basic

Sub OOoModules
   Dim oModuleManager as Object
   oModuleManager = createUnoService("com.sun.star.frame.ModuleManager")
   MsgBox Join(oModuleManager.getElementNames(), chr(10)),64, "OpenOffice.org Modules"
End Sub
