  • 1. project that I need help on.
    Hi. I have a project that I am working on. It is in Visual Basic 6 although I just have gotten vb.net installed on another computer. I am looking for someone, that has some extra time and would like to help me out with my project. Please email me if you would like to help. Thanks. Warren
  • 2. user.dat
    In an app I've written, there is a slight pause (just like calling Sleep) about 2 minutes after startup, and it appears that either the user.dat or system.dat files are being modified (at least the time stamps appear to corroborate that). Anyone have any idea what that could be? It's not a deal-breaker for the app, but it's annoying (to me, at least).
  • 3. date format error
    function Foo(tmp_str as variant) tmp_str = Format$(tmp_date, "dd/mm/yy") end function sub main() strFormattedDate=Foo(Now) end function My above lines of code is resulting in runtime error 5"invalid procedure call or argument". And the strange part is i dont get this error for every call to Foo().(it is being called repeatedly.) The error is generated only once every 20-30 calls. Can anyone help?
  • 4. Reading button press from another event
    Is it possible? I have a procedure running which needs to know if a certain command button has been pressed. I had thought of setting a global boolean variable that can be read from anywhere and would be set to True if the command event was triggered. Is there any other way, or have I answered my own question?

Hi,

A want to play a WMA file in VB6.
I have a mediaplayer control from then msdxm.ocx lib
I use this code


'start code
Private Sub cmdPlay_Click()
  Dim sBestand As String
  If File1.ListIndex > -1 Then
    sBestand = File1.path & IIf(Right(sBestand, 1) = "\", "", "\") & 
File1.FileName
    With MediaPlayer1
      .FileName = sBestand
      If .FileName = "" Then
        Debug.Print sBestand
        MsgBox .ErrorCode & ": " & .ErrorDescription
      End If
    End With
  End If
End Sub
'end code

it works fine with mp3 and wav but I always get the errorcode : -2147467259 
and the discription  can't open check filename and try again
the discription is translated and can be someting like this.

some an idee

Sorry
that must be

sBestand = File1.path & IIf(Right(File1.path, 1) = "\", "", "\") & 
File1.FileName

i Also get the error -2147221164 (class not registerd)

What if you change it to this?
 File1.FileName
     With MediaPlayer1
       If sBestand = "" Then
         Debug.Print sBestand
         MsgBox .ErrorCode & ": " & .ErrorDescription
       Else
       .FileName = sBestand
       End If
     End With

ore testing brengs me to the following

opening a wma in the formload has no problem

after running the code: Set oWMP = New WindowsMediaPlayer
I can't play any wma anymore
the windowsmediaplayer came from the reference wmp.dll
I use the wmp to read the wma tag info. So if i can read the taginfo with
another method the problem is solfed to

ust curious :)
I put mediaplayer from msdxm.ocx and placed a button on a form and voila it
plays ok.
Private Sub Command1_Click()
MediaPlayer1.FileName = "C:\30 Hank Marvin - Nights In White Satin.wma"
End Sub

Is your .wma file playing in windows mediaplayer?
Is your .wma file copyrighted?

es on both
that code works fine
It plays in wmp
and no no protection

it goes wrong after running the code: Set oWMP = New WindowsMediaPlayer
(wmp.dll)
i have tryed some code like your example in the formload and no problems,
but like i wrote after the needed code for reading the wma tags its no
longer possible to play wma but mp3 has no errors
