[Solved]_isMute in Win7?

Recommended Posts

Hi, all.

English is not my first language, so please be nice and tell me if I make mistakes.

I want to mute the master volume when Hotkey1 is pressed and unmute it when Hotkey2 is pressed.

I used the Send('{VOLUME_MUTE}') to mute and unmute.

However, when I press the Hotkey1 twice, it unmute the master volume.

I wanted to check the mute status and determine whether to send the command or not.

Here is my script

Hotkeyset('+{F2}','Mute')
Hotkeyset('^{F2}','Unmute')

Func Mute()
If _isMute(1000) = 0 Then
    Send('{VOLUME_MUTE}')
Elseif _isMute(1000) = 1 Then
    MsgBox(0,'Mute','Already Muted',3)
Else
    ConsoleWrite('Error occured when trying to mute'&@crlf)
EndIf
EndFunc

Func Unmute()
If _isMute(1000) = 1 Then
    Send('{VOLUME_MUTE}')
Elseif _isMute(1000) = 0 Then
    MsgBox(0,'Unmute','Already Unmuted',3)
Else
    ConsoleWrite('Error occured when trying to unmute'&@crlf)
EndIf
EndFunc

while 1

WEnd


;~ $re = _isMute(1000)
;~ If @error Then ConsoleWrite(@error & @CRLF)
;~ ConsoleWrite($re & @CRLF)

Func _isMute($opt = 1000)
    Local $retVal = 0, $ex = False
    If Not WinExists('[CLASS:Volume Control]') Then
        If @OSVersion = 'WIN_XP' Then
            Run('sndvol32', '', @SW_HIDE)
        Else
            Run('sndvol', '', @SW_HIDE)
        EndIf
        $ex = True
    EndIf
    If WinWait('[CLASS:Volume Control]', '', 2) = 0 Then Return -1
    $retVal = ControlCommand('[CLASS:Volume Control]', '', $opt, 'isChecked')
    If @error Then Return -2
    If $ex = True Then WinClose('[CLASS:Volume Control]')
    Return $retVal
EndFunc  ;==>_isMute

I have googled about it and found out that sndvol was rebuilt from the ground since Vista and that's why _isMute() is not working any more.

I also found a guy said taht he was able to check the mute status by using winmm.dll and mixergetControlDetails function at here.

However, I have no clue how to or what to do with it...

Any help?

Also look into trancexx's - there she defines the same IAudioEndpointVolume interface that the above plugin uses, but in this case it works in both 64-bit and 32-bit modes and doesn't require extra redistributables.

The problem is it would need to be extracted from the player and put into a UDF of its own, which would require a little effort.

I don't really understand the mechanism how this works...

Somehow I thought I got this working but... it wasn't :x

I should try even harder...

Finally, It's working!!!

Thank you for your kind reply.

All I had to add was

_AutoItObject_StartUp()

at the beginning.

I used entire _AudioVolObject function ^^

And here I post my result, a nBossKey!!

You can set hotkeys for hiding/show windows.

You can also set almost any activated window to fullscreen mode.

Because of your help, I could be able to add a must function to it.

Thank you again and I post my result here.

nBossKey.exe
