Opening a Dialog With Basic

In the Office BASIC window for a dialog that you created, leave the dialog editor by clicking the name tab of the Module that the dialog is assigned to. The name tab is at the bottom of the window.

Enter the following code for a subroutine called Dialog1Show. In this example, the name of the dialog that you created is "Dialog1":

Sub Dialog1Show
    With GlobalScope.BasicLibraries
       If Not .IsLibraryLoaded("Tools") Then .LoadLibrary("Tools")
    End With
    oDialog1 = Tools.ModuleControls.LoadDialog("Standard", "Dialog1")
End Sub

Without using "LoadDialog" you can call the code as follows:

Sub Dialog1Show
    oDialog1 = CreateUnoDialog( DialogLibraries.Standard.Dialog1 )
End Sub

When you execute this code, "Dialog1" opens. To close the dialog, click the close button (x) on its title bar.
