Newbie post. Please be kind.
I am having terrible trouble creating a Audio VU meter user control in VB (Visual Studio 2008), and hoped somebody might be able to help.
I need the simplest type of display - just a label on a user control where the width of the label changes with the input of a specified channel of the sound card
Don't need Left/right (it would be nice, but not crucial)
Don't need green/orange/red color changes as the volume peaks
To be honest, I have already done the interface - just need the code that provides the % of peak audio currently playing in the sound card channel. I understand it needs to be a logarithmic scale, and should average the value over a few millisecs in order not to appear jerky in it's display... but then i get SO stuck.
The destination platform is XP and Vista.
Any help greatly appreciated
