  • 1. Can't end prog without End
    Hi I've written a diddy little program to measure reaction times. ==================================== Option Explicit Private Declare Function GetTickCount& Lib "kernel32" () Private Sub Form_Load() Dim currt As Long, interval As Long Show Do: 'Loop until Exit currt = GetTickCount& interval = 2000 + Rnd() * 3000 Shape1.BackColor = vbWhite 'Random delay While GetTickCount& < currt + interval DoEvents Wend Beep Shape1.BackColor = vbRed currt = GetTickCount& Do DoEvents If Shape1.BackColor = vbWhite Then Exit Do Loop MsgBox GetTickCount& - currt Loop End Sub Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer) Shape1.BackColor = vbWhite End Sub Private Sub btnexit_Click() Unload Me 'End!!! I have to use this to end the prog! End Sub ==================================== I've learnt here that End shouldn't be used but if I don't use it the prog repeats. Help appreciated, TIA.

  • 2. Running random programs
    I know I can fire up any old program via 'shell(program)' ... but, after it's running can I perform tasks on that program like pressing buttons, inputting data, etc.? If so, got a pointer to how? I've looked a little at 'createObject' but I don't think that will work. For what it's worth, the program I'm trying to control is 'Velocity' from Charles Schwab ... Thanks. Bob
  • 3. reposition text boxes
    I have two address lines in my template. If one of the address lines is null I want the other textboxes to shift so a blank line does not show on the printout. 2. I want to dynamically fill a form field combo box from a table in a dbase. How can this be done.
  • 4. Differences between Visual Basic and eg QBasic (or GWBASIC)
    Hi all! Someone recently posted asking what the differences were. Someone gave a detailed reply including the usual "there is an important difference - Vb is event driven." I suggested that good code in "old" BASIC (like mine <g>) has a menu and selecting a menu option is much like pressing a button. It goes to a small segment of code which then executes and goes back to the menu. In that way the old BASIC can be event driven and thus this difference does not really exist. Do you all agree? I further suggested that the important difference is more like the GUI, and the prewritten controls (although I suppose you could do that with QB too, though they weren't supplied with the package)..

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.

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
