The Good News (continued) The Renaissance brought us new tools OLE automation COM automation And much more The Revolution brings us major changes A true competitor to Office Visual Studio.NET 2008 and VSTO 3.0 Code begins to move from inside a document to complete applications © 2009 by the individual speaker

  13. 13. Integration from the Notes Client Integrating Microsoft Word Integrating Lotus Symphony Documents Mail Merge Integrating Microsoft Excel © 2009 by the individual speaker
  14. 14. Integration from Notes From Notes, you will write code to manipulate the application In most cases, you will be converting Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code to LotusScript The VBA code will be written so it saves in Notes as LotusScript Once you get the knack of converting the code, you can focus on the process vs. the code © 2009 by the individual speaker
  15. 15. Creating a Word Document — ―Hello World‖ Demo — Example 1 Launch Microsoft Word and enter some text © 2009 by the individual speaker
  16. 16. The Easiest Way to Start Microsoft Office provides us with a recorder Records all keyboard actions Mouse actions are sometimes recorded, so avoid when possible Generates VBA code for you Easy way to learn how something is done Table is created Page settings are set etc. © 2009 by the individual speaker
  17. 17.

  19. 19. Lotus Symphony – The Developer Perspective Does this work with Lotus Symphony? • All of the demos will be done using Lotus Symphony • You will need Notes 8.0.1 or higher – IBM has exposed the Lotus Symphony objects to the registry to allow COM to work • If you want run the demos in 8.0.0, they will invoke OpenOffice.org • There is a way to hack 8.0.0 to work, but it is not supported © 2009 by the individual speaker
  20. 20. Lotus Symphony – The Developer Perspective What is the ServiceManager? • ServiceManager is similar to the NotesSession class • It is a factory class that gets you to other places Set SM=CreateObject("com.sun.star.ServiceManager") • Think of the ServiceManager as a back-end class, and we want the front end (like NotesUIWorkspace) Set Desktop=SM.createInstance("com.sun.star.frame.Desktop") © 2009 by the individual speaker
  21. 21. Lotus Symphony – The Developer Perspective What Did That Do? Calling the ServiceManager created an OpenOffice.org window, but we need to do more … © 2009 by the individual speaker
  22. 22. Lotus Symphony – The Developer Perspective Let’s Start Writer — Word Processing Application • So far we have an OpenOffice.Org window, but it doesn’t know what application it will be — we have to tell it Dim args() Set WriterApplication=Desktop.loadComponentFromURL ("private:factory/swriter","_blank",0,args) • Args is a variant array – We don’t want to pass any parameters, but it must be an array • The ―s‖ in ―swriter‖ stands for ―Star‖ • Now we have a word processor up and running © 2009 by the individual speaker
  23. 23. Lotus Symphony – The Developer Perspective The Picture So Far • Now we have an application open • Time to do something! © 2009 by the individual speaker
  24. 24. Lotus Symphony – The Developer Perspective Let’s Add Some Text • First, we need to get a handle to the text part of the document Set WriterText=WriterApplication.getText() • Next, we need a cursor position where we can insert the text Set Cursor=WriterText.createTextCursor() • Finally, we can make the traditional greeting Call WriterText.insertString(Cursor,"Hello World!",False) © 2009 by the individual speaker
  25. 25. Lotus Symphony – The Developer Perspective Hello World! • After executing all of that code, this is the result • Now let’s try it for real © 2009 by the individual speaker
  26. 26. Notes to Writer Demo — Example 2 ―Hello World‖ from Notes to Symphony Documents © 2009 by the individual speaker 25
  27. 27. Notes 8.5.1 and the Symphony API • Included with Notes 8.5.1 is the new Symphony API • Supports LotusScript and Java • Must run from Notes client – does not work with Standalone Symphony Application (applications or plug-ins) • API is modeled after Notes Object Model • Symphony Container added to Composite Applications thru the CA Editor © 2009 by the individual speaker
  28. 28. Symphony Documents LotusScript API © 2009 by the individual speaker
  29. 29. Symphony Spreadsheets LotusScript API © 2009 by the individual speaker
  30. 30. Symphony Presentations LotusScript API © 2009 by the individual speaker
  31. 31. Step 1: Symphony Application • Create a new SymphonyApplication object • This is a base level object, much like the NotesSession • You will not see anything on screen after setting this Dim application As SymphonyApplication Set application = New SymphonyApplication © 2009 by the individual speaker
  32. 32. Step 2: Symphony Documents • Initialize the Documents Application • You should see the Symphony Application at this point Dim documents As SymphonyDocuments Set documents = application.Documents © 2009 by the individual speaker
  33. 33. Step 3: Open a New Document • Create a new document • You can also create a new document based on a Template using the second property Dim document As SymphonyDocument Set document = documents.AddDocument("",False,True) • New Document based on a template Set document = documents.AddDocument("D:FileTypeAssociationtest.ott",True,True) © 2009 by the individual speaker
  34. 34. Step 4: Set the Range • You can set a range based on a paragraph, table, or in this case, the entire document contents Dim range As SymphonyTextRange Set range = document.content.End © 2009 by the individual speaker
  35. 35. Step 5: Insert Text • Using the InsertBefore or InsertAfter methods, you can insert text based on any range or object Call range.InsertBefore("Hello World") © 2009 by the individual speaker
  36. 36. ―Hello World‖ in Symphony Documents via LotusScript Dim application As SymphonyApplication Dim documents As SymphonyDocuments Dim document As SymphonyDocument Dim range As SymphonyTextRange Set application = New SymphonyApplication Set documents = application.Documents Set document = documents.AddDocument("",False,True) Set range = document.content.End Call range.InsertBefore("Hello World") © 2009 by the individual speaker
  37. 37. Lotus Symphony – The Developer Perspective Lotus Symphony API via LotusScript Demo — Example 3 ―Hello World‖ in Documents using LotusScript More info in the “Symphony Developer's Guide for Notes.pdf” that comes with the Symphony Toolkit © 2009 by the individual speaker
  38. 38. Merging Mail from Notes Most requested Notes-to-Office Integration functionality Users have no idea how to get data from Notes into Word Lotus has not provided this functionality … yet Quick win for you — take this code back and add it to your boss’s personal name and address book and be the HERO! © 2009 by the individual speaker
  39. 39. Mail Merge from Address Book Demo — Example 4 Generate a mail merge from the personal name and address book © 2009 by the individual speaker
  40. 40. Integration with Microsoft Excel Working with Excel is very different from Word The objects we use are different Microsoft Word Microsoft Excel Text Position/Cursor Cell Paragraph Range Page Worksheet Document Workbook In Excel, we tend to move more data from Notes to the application Lots of rows in Excel vs. filling in bookmarks in Word © 2009 by the individual speaker
  41. 41. Working with Microsoft Excel Demo — Example 5 Create a spreadsheet from Notes data and generate a chart © 2009 by the individual speaker
  42. 42. What We’ll Cover … Who we are? Integration Background Integration from the Notes client Integration from other applications Integration from a web browser Integration with Google Docs Real World Integration Looking forward Wrap-up and Q&A © 2009 by the individual speaker
  43. 43. Moving to the Other Side This part covers the more advanced subjects Such as automating Lotus Notes from Microsoft Office and other technologies We will use COM, XML, Web services, and .NET technologies As the title suggests, this part is more technical We are about to pick up the pace © 2009 by the individual speaker
  44. 44. Automation from the Microsoft Side Many integration scenarios require that user interaction start, or solely be, from an application other than Notes Many times we will not have the Notes client installed We will not be writing LotusScript We may call LotusScript through the Notes COM interface We need to take advantage of ―new‖ technologies XML Web services .NET Managed code © 2009 by the individual speaker
