Detect File in Use

Recommended Posts

I have a .wav file (I think it's .wav, working from memory) that will play on occasion. I would like to be able to determine via scripting if that file is in use. Something like:

while not file_in_use(filename)
     sleep(1000)
wend

... something like that. Possible? Ideas for implementation?

You can play a sound and let the script pause until the sound has ended with the following command.

SoundPlay ( "filename" , 1 )

Is this what you mean?
