Hi,

Is it possible to open word or openoffice files in nusphere ? As a tab in the editor (embed) ?

regards,
Michel

It makes from no to very little sense for any php ide to work with Word files.
If you develop a site in php, the work is normally done in php/html/js/tpl/css files and all these files are always in plain text format.

Wel yess it makes perfect sense....

I make notes in OpenOffice documents(documenting php programs) and lots of designs are delivered in word and openoffice. I switch between the php editor and the documents very often.

Of course I can use text documents for documentation but that is kind of limited in layout Wink

Although OpenOffice is usefull (no doubts!)...
Well, to let you see and work with OpenOffice documents, we'd need to implement OpenOffice from scratches inside the IDE. Right? So I'm telling you it's not that simple and I'm not sure if it's our business at all Smile

That I understand! Is there not a way to implement windows embedding in general so that applications can embed in nusphere in a standard way ? And use the default extension programs for it ?

The reason I asked this was that I am also working with eclipse and it is a plugin overthere and that works great.

OLE is quite a standard way for embedding applications into other applications under Windows. Why not? It only runs slowly (requires IPC) and often is not stable.

True but the only purpose would be to get applications (optional) to run in a nusphere tab without to much hocus-pocus Smile

Do you know if OpenOffice supports OLE? Smile I'm almost pretty sure that it does not.

No.
The article tells that you can access OpenOffice documents using COM objects, for example you can do it from php via .NET (COM) extension.

To have an application embedded, some crusial OLE interfaces are needed, such as IOleControl, IOleInPlaceObject, IOleClientSite, IOleControlSite, IOleInPlaceSite, IOleInPlaceFrame etc.
