winamp start up with volume control

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I found this AutoIt code on another forum when looking at a way to start WinAmp and setting the volume.

I have WinAmp 2.95 installed but it always has the pop up saying Winamp not found.

The winamp forums said that winamp v1.x to v2.x uses a class name 'Winamp v1.x'

Any ideas why it is not detecting WinAmp?

Using AutoIt v3.2.0.1

;There must be a problem with your VB code (I don't know enough to help you there).

;Here's how the program is written in AutoIt:

Const $WM_USER = 0x400

Opt ("WinTitleMatchMode", 4);Sets the mode to 'classname=*' titlematch

$WAhandle = ControlGetHandle("classname=Winamp v1.x", "", 0);Gets the Winamp Handle
If @error = 1 Then
MsgBox(16, "Fatal Error:", "Winamp not found.")
Exit
EndIf

$input = InputBox("Enter Volume:", "Please enter the volume you wish to set" &@CRLF&"(0 - 100%):")
If $input >= 0 AND $input <= 100 Then
DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $WAhandle, "int", $WM_USER, "int", ($input*255/100), "int", 122) 
;Set the Volume to $input * 255 / 100
Else
MsgBox(16, "Fatal Error:", "Value entered is not valid.")
Exit
EndIf

Check the classname with au3info.exe located in the same folder as autoit3.exe

Also don't winamp have shortcut keys to adjust the volume? alt+arrow or something. You could use those and send the keyboard command directly to the top window. Guess that one would be easier to detect than the volume control.

DISCLAIMER: I'm not using winamp ;)

Checked it with au3info.exe, the class name is correct (Winamp v1.x)

The reason for this is beacuse it is part of an automated start up, and I want to make sure the volume is set to 50%.

(Part of an LPFM radio station set up, so the level must be correct)

Works fine for me Winamp 5.31 using autoit beta v3.2.1.12.

My winamp classname is:

Class: Winamp v1.x
