Automate LibreOffice with LabVIEW

Updated Oct 1, 2018

Issue Details

I need to control LibreOffice from LabVIEW to generate reports. I cannot find any documentation about an ActiveX API like the one from Microsoft® Office. Is there any equivalent API that I can use?


Although there is no ActiveX API in LibreOffice, you can use the UNO API to automate LibreOffice. This API provides the same features, although it can be a bit more challenging to use. Another solution is to use a community designed library like this one.
