I cannot figure out how you go about playing a Wav/MIDI file in a VB Program. I found one thing but it didn't work. This is a little old but the version is Visual Basic 4.0. It actually runs on Windows XP!!
here's a module I used to play sounds. I don't remember how I did it with just the .wav fiile, but I THINK you can just put the name of the file in place of loadresdata. But in this example I have my .wav files saved in my resource file with id's of 101 and 102. If your app is always going to use the same set of sounds, I think this is the easiest way, and quicker. So to play the sound I just call MySounds(101) and it plays that file. Here's the snippet from a module:
Public Declare Function sndPlaySound Lib _
"winmm.dll" Alias "sndPlaySoundA" _
(ByVal lpszSoundName As String, ByVal uFlags As Long) As Long
Public Const SND_ASYNC = &H1
Public Const SND_MEMORY = &H4
Public Sub MySounds(intSound As Integer)
'101 is drums sound used for startup
'102 is bop sound used for going from form to form
sndPlaySound StrConv(LoadResData(intSound, "custom"), vbUnicode) _
, SND_ASYNC Or SND_MEMORY
bdiamond, any chance you could use sndPlaySound in a code snippet? I'm not sure how to employ it. thanks.
Hi I am extreamly new to all forms of programming... I need a little help figuring out where to put all of the dim statements... I tried the code but the evil gremlins in my computer are giving me error messages... :rolleyes:
