hi!
i am trying to change the title of a media player object:

Private Sub stam()
Dim wm As New WindowsMediaPlayer
wm.URL = "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Music\Sample Music\New Stories (Highway Blues).mpg"
MsgBox wm.currentPlaylist.getItemInfo("title")
wm.setItemInfo("title" ,"hello")
End Sub

the getitemifo works well, but not the setiteminfo
i get a messege: "compiler error expected ="
why?

Isn't setItemInfo applicable only to something like currentPlaylist or currentMedia?

About the error, try removing parenthesis when calling setItemInfo.

Is that VB6, BTW?

I was talkin about to not use brackets in wm.setItemInfo("title" ,"hello").

iPrivate Sub stam()
Dim wm As New WindowsMediaPlayer
wm.URL = "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Music\Sample Music\New Stories (Highway Blues).mpg"
MsgBox wm.currentPlaylist.getItemInfo("title")
wm.setItemInfo("title" ,"hello")
End Sub

why?

can i ask what is the use of this?

and can i ask how to create a media player in the vb6 or can i borrow a sample of ur project coz i want to learn how to make it and how to upload a music in my project
