Dear Samuel,

  Sorry to disturb you with my silly problems. I am new to this libreoffice
development. I went through the sample codes provided by you. I could not
understand where these codes have to be used or put into the
starter-extension project so that it can be customised for spellchecking

  In the starter project extension we have the And I
think instead of this we need to put in Now
accordingly how should the be modified I could not
understand. And similarly how should the StarterProject.idl be modified I
could not understand. So towards this I thought I will build a new
Extension project, as given in the page and specify the UNO type
as "XSpellChecker", so that these basic codes and .urd, .idl and types.rdb
will be built by the Eclipse and I will put the code given in in the

  So this is where I got error of UNO type selection wizard not working.
The StarterProject Extension is working well in my system and not getting
any errors. So please kindly help me in knowing how and where I should
modify your StarterProject extension code to put code.

 Thank you very much.
