i tried this :

Code: Select all

predicates       onPlanMaintenancePreventiveRedresseur : window::menuItemListener.   clauses       onPlanMaintenancePreventiveRedresseur(Source, _MenuTag):-       _=exe_native::shellExecute(nullHandle, "open","C:\\Users\\youness\\Documents\\Visual Prolog Projects\\database\\Exe\\testt.ods","", "", 1)
but the problem is that when i change .ods to .xltm . it doesn't work , can any body explain this to me

This will not help on the problem, but you should use the predicate I mentioned instead:

Code: Select all

clauses     onPlanMaintenancePreventiveRedresseur(Source, _MenuTag):-         shell_api::shellOpen(@"C:\Users\youness\Documents\Visual Prolog Projects\database\Exe\testt.ods")
shellOpen (which basically does the same as your code) does the same as a double click on the file in the explorer will do.

So I suggest you try to double click your xltm file, and see what then happens.
