Office Word API for ActiveX?
« on: March 10, 2019, 08:51:56 PM »
Hi guys,

Just wondering where I can find all the API for ActiveX and possibly some script examples from you guys?

Currently I am trying to insert some text in office word through Autocad and replace some text with some symbols. How can I do this? I try to change the string in my script to character Unicode before exporting to office word but then I realise I still need to press ALT+X in word to make that happen. So what is the best way to do so?

Thank you guys.

It's a rather broad topic and non trivial for someone starting out. The following is incomplete but it's what I can ante up given my time allowance.

You can use this to identify the ProgID to use to instantiate a word document:

Example: (_FindProjIDs "word*"):

Output: (
            "Word.Application.14"
            "Word.Basic.9"
            "Word.Document.12"
            "Word.Document.6"
            "Word.Document.8"
            "Word.DocumentMacroEnabled.12"
            "Word.OpenDocumentText.12"
            "Word.Picture.6"
            "Word.Picture.8"
            "Word.Template.12"
            "Word.TemplateMacroEnabled.12"
            "WordDocument"
            "WordPad.Document.1"
        )


Generally speaking, you'd be looking for the highest number associated with a document type descriptor. In this case I might try "Word.Document.12".

e.g. (setq wd (vlax-create-object "Word.Document.12"))

>> #<VLA-OBJECT _Document 000000008cb2b398>

(vlax-dump-object wd t)

Just wondering where I can find all the API for ActiveX and possibly some script examples from you guys?

Here is the ActiveX Object Model for MS Word:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/office/vba/api/overview/Word/object-model

Note that everything will be documented in terms of VBA, and so here is a brief explanation to help you to convert to Visual LISP:

You can use this to identify the ProgID to use to instantiate a word document

Back then, that sub of yours hit me like a gold brick in the head.
So it still gives me a headache of understanding, but its a gold aswell. :)
(apply ''((a b c)(a b c))
  '(
    (( f L ) (apply 'strcat (f L)))
    (( L ) (if L (cons (chr (car L)) (f (cdr L)))))
    (72 101 108 108 111 32 87 111 114 108 100)
  )
)

Hi guys,

Currently I am trying to insert some text in office word through Autocad and replace some text with some symbols. How can I do this? I try to change the string in my script to character Unicode before exporting to office word but then I realise I still need to press ALT+X in word to make that happen. So what is the best way to do so?

Thank you guys.

It's a rather broad topic and non trivial for someone starting out. The following is incomplete but it's what I can ante up given my time allowance.

You can use this to identify the ProgID to use to instantiate a word document:

Example: (_FindProjIDs "word*"):

Output: (
            "Word.Application.14"
            "Word.Basic.9"
            "Word.Document.12"
            "Word.Document.6"
            "Word.Document.8"
            "Word.DocumentMacroEnabled.12"
            "Word.OpenDocumentText.12"
            "Word.Picture.6"
            "Word.Picture.8"
            "Word.Template.12"
            "Word.TemplateMacroEnabled.12"
            "WordDocument"
            "WordPad.Document.1"
        )


Generally speaking, you'd be looking for the highest number associated with a document type descriptor. In this case I might try "Word.Document.12".

e.g. (setq wd (vlax-create-object "Word.Document.12"))

>> #<VLA-OBJECT _Document 000000008cb2b398>

Beyond that it would be to you signficant advantage to (1) understand AutoCAD Activex Programming via LISP, (2) know how to translate VBA / VBScript to LISP, (3) find VB / VBScript code that does want you want via google, (4) translate to LISP. Wallah.

Thanks MP. It will take me a while to understand the script but I will go through it :)

Re: Office Word API for ActiveX?
« Reply #8 on: March 12, 2019, 05:56:47 AM »
Just wondering where I can find all the API for ActiveX and possibly some script examples from you guys?

Here is the ActiveX Object Model for MS Word:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/office/vba/api/overview/Word/object-model

Note that everything will be documented in terms of VBA, and so here is a brief explanation to help you to convert to Visual LISP:
https://www.cadtutor.net/forum/topic/47639-getting-help-from-the-autocad-activex-and-vba-reference/?tab=comments#comment-391174

Thanks Lee. Very helpful information. I tried to record a macro in MS word to find out how to use find&replace function to replace symbol character, but the macro shows the symbol in the script itself though. Still struggling to find out a way to find & replace symbol.
