Winamp script help

Recommended Posts

1Munkey

Hey guys, I'm relatively new to AutoIt. I've been writing several small scripts for use in my carpc for use at mp3car.com . I'm now trying to write a script that will pull details from a winamp window which contains details about streaming audio. My problem is that I have is that I have to send the main winamp window !3 in order to open the info window to pull the details. I have to close this window and reopen it each time in case I have switched to the next stream in my playlist.

WinActivate("classname=Winamp v1.x")

controlsend("classname=Winamp v1.x","","","!3")

WinSetState("MP3 Stream Info Box","",@SW_MINIMIZE)

The problem is every time I send the !3 to the main window the info box flashes for a brief second before it minimizes.....very annoying. Is there a way to send !3 to winamp and have the subsequent popup autmatically minimized in order to avoid this "blink"?

Thanks a bunch

There's a com object that can be downloaded and installed for easy automation, you can find it, and it's documentation on this link: http://www.pretentiousname.com/gen_scripting/index.html

I hope it helps :whistle:

Edit:

There's also some other automation library on this forum, search it :)
