Updating the ICE word processor toolbars 1 Updating the ICE word processor toolbars This document is a guide for making changes to the ICE toolbars and does not explain how the toolbars work or how to code for OOo & Word. Information about developing OOo extensions can be found on the extension manager wiki, information about Word Add-Ins is available at MSDN. Important files Filename Description macros/toolbar.txt * Main toolbar code for applying ICE styles macros/publisher.txt* Code for toolbar publishing features macros/stylecreator.txt Code for generating ICE styles macros/Xref.txt Code for cross referencing feature OOo Extension utils/extensionbuilder.py The extension builder for the OOo ICE toolbar ice-toolbar.oxt The ICE toolbar OOo extension description.xml version, location of ice.update.xml & name are used ice.update.xml Contains the version & download URL for OOo to update the extension. Word Add-In word/ice-toolbar- The ICE toolbar for Word self installer installer.dot * VBA code used by both OOo and Word toolbars by using compiler conditions. OOo ICE toolbar extension Before starting make sure both the template directory in the trunk and in the downloads area have been checked out using the same structure as the ICE repository, for example: ice/trunk/templates/ice (required for dev version) ice/downloads/latest/templates (required for stable version) Using the extension builder The ICE toolbar extension is built using the ICE extension builder, to run the builder: >> cd ice/trunk/templates/ice >> python utils/extensionBuilder.py $version $type 2 For help: >> python utils/extensionBuilder.py --help Options version Version number of the extension, this is displayed in the OOo extension manager and is used by OOo for updating. The number to use will depend on the level of changes made. For example, if the current version is 1.0.0 a bug fix would make it 1.0.1, a new feature 1.1.0 and a major change 2.0.0. type The type of release either, 'dev' (default) or stable. 'dev': ● Toolbar name displayed in the OOo extension manager is “ICE Style Toolbar (dev)”. ● The toolbar is built in ice/trunk/templates/ice/ooo (main development area) ● Files modified: ooo/ice-toolbar/description.xml ooo/ice.update.xml ooo/ice-toolbar.oxt 'stable': ● Toolbar name displayed in the OOo extension manager is “ICE Style Toolbar”. ● The toolbar is built in ice/downloads/latest/templates/ (main area for download stable versions) ● Files modified: ooo/ice-toolbar/description.xml ice/downloads/latest/templates/ice.update.xml ice/downloads/latest/templates/ice-toolbar.oxt Making changes 1. Update the required files: >> svn up ice/trunk/templates/ice >> svn up ice/downloads/latest/templates 2. Remove the ICE toolbar extension using the OOo extension manager and restart OOo 3. Install the ICE toolbar extension from ice/trunk/templates/ice/ooo/ice- toolbar.oxt (Important: This ensures the extension has the latest changes from the macro text files i.e. toolbar.txt) 4. Make the changes to the installed extension: Updating the ICE word processor toolbars 3 ● If the toolbar macros require changes then go to: a. Tools > Macros > Oganize Macros > OOo Basic b. Select My Macros > IceLibrary > (select module) c. Select the macro & make the changes d. Test the changes Important: Copy the any changes into appropriate text file i.e. changes to 'toolbar' module need to be copied into ice/trunk/templates/ice/macros/toolbar.txt ● If a dialog requires changes then: a. Tools > Macros > Ogranize Dialogs b. Make the changes c. Test the changes d. Tools > Macros > Oganize Dialogs & open the dialog e. Click export then navigate to ice/trunk/templates/ice/ooo/ice- toolbar/IceLibrary and override the existing dialog 5. Rebuild the extension: >> cd ice/trunk/templates/ice Developers version, run: >> python utils/extensionBuilder.py $version dev Stable version, run: >> python utils/extensionBuilder.py $version stable Important: Before building or committing a stable version be sure you have the dev version (with the same changes) committed first and that it has been tested by a second person. 6. Remove the previous toolbar using the extension manager and restart OOo 7. Install the updated extension and re-test Release changes Provided testing has been completed ok SVN commit required files modified in: ice/trunk/templates/ice ice/downloads/latest/templates (NB: Only required if the stable version was built) 4 Updating the ICE Word toolbar Making changes 1. Update the required files: >> svn up ice/trunk/templates/ice >> svn up ice/downloads/latest/templates 2. Remove any previously installed ICE Word toolbars 3. Right click on and open trunk/templates/word/ice-toolbar- installer.dot 4. Open the Word Visual Basic editor and make the required changes Important: If changes are required to the 'toolbar' module remember copy the content from toolbar.txt before making changes. The compiler conditions at the top of the module will need to be set for Word, for example: #Const MSWD = True #Const OOO = Not MSWD 5. Save the toolbar 6. Install the modified toolbar & test the changes 7. Repeat steps 2 to 5 until the testing passes Important: If changes are made to the 'toolbar' module copy any changes back into toolbar.txt, remember to check the compiler conditions are set to OOo, for example: #Const MSWD = False #Const OOO = Not MSWD Release changes For changes made to the trunk version SVN commit the modified files in ice/trunk/templates. If testing has been completed and the toolbar is ready for release i.e. 'stable', copy the ice- toolbar from ice/trunk/templates/word into ice/downloads/latest/templates and commit the changes.
