This NetBeans project contains a sample OpenOffice.org 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:
- dialogs: contains the xdl dialog file for the option page. Can be edited using OpenOffice.org's built-in dialog editor (see macros).

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.
