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

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.


> and return with either a bug or an use case that cannot be solved.

Do you find the support complete already for field functions?

So no bug report and no specific use case since 18 month. Let's close this report. Markus, feel free to change it back to UNCONFIRMED, if it is possible for you to describe a proper bug report or give a use case as requested.
=> RESOLVED INSUFFICIENTDATA

Under which circumstances would you begin to care for extensions to field functions according to better collaboration with universal network objects?
