Description Markus Elfring 2019-12-27 14:20:26 UTC
I imagine that universal network objects can support various query interfaces.
https://help.libreoffice.org/6.4/en-GB/text/shared/guide/integratinguno.html

I suggest to map these data sources to field functions which can be adjusted by the dialogue “Fields”.

I don't have deep insight into this topic, but can you illustrate your idea with an existing Add-On?

How do you think about to clarify the proposed functionality better?


> but can you illustrate your idea with an existing Add-On?

Probably not yet.

Thus I am looking for further software extensions.

You ask to use UNO to enhance field functions? That's a potential solution but what is the problem?
Comment 5 Markus Elfring 2020-03-12 08:01:23 UTC
(In reply to Heiko Tietze from comment #4)
Some fields can provide various data from documents.
(Example: Page number)
https://help.libreoffice.org/6.4/en-GB/text/swriter/guide/fields.html

Which fields can query universal network objects accordingly?

Would you like to extend any functionality in such an application area?
Comment 6 Heiko Tietze 2020-03-12 08:06:08 UTC
I don't see any need for an enhancement. Rather you ask quite unspecific questions. I suggest you start at ask.libreoffice.org first and return with either a bug or an use case that cannot be solved.

We come along different views again.


> Rather you ask quite unspecific questions.

Some of my feature requests touch bigger (and perhaps not so popular) application areas.
Example: Universal network objects


> ask.libreoffice.org first

I am unsure under which circumstances I might try also this communication interface out.

Do you find the support complete already for field functions?
