WebDev-14 with Google Docs

Startbeitrag von Shahine am 27.08.2009 15:42


Has anyone managed to implement a connection to Google Docs from WebDev or WinDev-14 ?

I want to be able to link Google documents to database records, but I cannot see how you can achieve this?

As I understand it with WebDev-14 we have 3 basic commands:

GglUploadDocument: Send documents to the Google server
GglListDocument: Retrieve a list of documents available on the Google server
Ggldelete: Deletes a Google document from the Google server.

I can use GglListDocument, and get a list of my documents, but then what? How do I open one of the documents and display the content? Ideally I want the user to select a document from the list and then display that document in an IFrame in my application. Is this possible? Any ideas?

On a separate note GglListDocuments parameter for ‘Google document folders’ doesn’t seem to work! I can list all my documents, but I cannot get a list of what is in a folder? Any ideas?

Many Thanks



Hi Shahine,

You may have to roll your own.. See here http://code.google.com/apis/documents/docs/2.0/developers_guide_protocol.html#DownloadingDocs


PS: I would also love to know how to do this without resorting to google API...

Hi Shahine,

I did not work with Google Docs, but there is also the function: GglRequest() which make any request.

From the download doc (also given by bosher), you could use GglRequest() to Get the Document...

Maybe something like GglRequest(Cnx, gglServiceDocuments, "/feeds/download/documents/Export?docID=example_document_id&exportFormat=example_format")

This will make a GET request as described in the documentation. (Also in the help, they provide a complete URL... maybe this is required too.) I would guess that the content is returned directly from the function. sData (or binary?) = GglRequest()...

Hope this help.

Thanks for the replies bosher and Alexandre

I will check the GglRequest commend.

However I am not quite sure how it is meant to work!

Firstly how would I know the full url of the document?
More importantly what do I do with the data that is returned? if it is binary it will be of no use!

Anyway I don't really don't want to download the document at all. I want to be able to display it (within the Google Docs editor) in an IFrame.

So that my users can edit, view or print the document.

Thanks for your input
