Adjust Sound & Audio Device Properties

Recommended Posts


I want to make a script that can, with a hotkey, adjust sound & audio device properties.

For example, if I right click the speaker icon and choose Adjust Audio Properties

(I'm on WinXP btw), I get that window "Sound and Audio Device Properties" with these







Now I want the script to go to Audio tab and change the Sound playback to "xxxxxx"

(doesn't matter the text, but it's the second value in the drop down list).

I also want the script to go back to the previous value in the same drop down list

with a different hotkey.

Is that possible? I assume it needs to go to registry but I just don't know anything

about registry or how to access and/or manipulate the windows registry.

Thanks a lot for any hints/help!

I looked but your script does volume set and get. Am I wrong?

I need to change the device not just the volume...

I have a old(dusty) script I made a long time ago, to lock the wave volume to the main volume, it might have something you can use in it:

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)

DllCall("kernel32.dll", "int", "Wow64DisableWow64FsRedirection", "int", 1)

Global Const $pID = Run(@SystemDir & "\sndvol32.exe", @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)

WinWait("classname=Volume Control")

Global $Muted = False
Global Const $TBM_GETPOS = 0x400
Global Const $TBM_SETPOS = 0x405
Global Const $WM_VSCROLL = 0x115
Global Const $SB_LINEDOWN = 0x1
Global Const $SB_LINEUP = 0x0
Global Const $WindowHandle = WinGetHandle("classname=Volume Control")
Global Const $ControlHandle1 = ControlGetHandle($WindowHandle, "", 1001)
Global Const $ControlHandle2 = ControlGetHandle($WindowHandle, "", 2001)

$g_szVersion = "Volume Control Fixer v1"
If WinExists($g_szVersion) Then Exit

While 1
    If Not WinExists($WindowHandle) Then
        MsgBox(0, "Error!", "sndvol32.exe is not running, exiting")
        $data1 = DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $ControlHandle1, "int", $TBM_GETPOS, "int", 0, "int", 0)
        $data2 = DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $ControlHandle2, "int", $TBM_GETPOS, "int", 0, "int", 0)
        If $data1[0] <> $data2[0] Then
;~          If $data1[0] > $data2[0] Then
;~              TrayTip("", "Volume @ " & Int(100-($data1[0]/5)) & "%", 0)
;~              DllCall("user32.dll", "ptr", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $ControlHandle2, "int", $TBM_SETPOS, "int", 1, "int", $data1[0])
;~              DllCall("user32.dll", "ptr", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $WindowHandle, "int", $WM_VSCROLL, "int", $SB_LINEDOWN, "int", $ControlHandle2)
;~          ElseIf $data1[0] < $data2[0] Then
;~              TrayTip("", "Volume @ " & Int(100-($data1[0]/5)) & "%", 0); works, but buggs out sometimes... annoying, therefore removed
;~              DllCall("user32.dll", "ptr", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $ControlHandle2, "int", $TBM_SETPOS, "int", 1, "int", $data1[0])
;~              DllCall("user32.dll", "ptr", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $WindowHandle, "int", $WM_VSCROLL, "int", $SB_LINEUP, "int", $ControlHandle2)
;~          EndIf
            DllCall("user32.dll", "ptr", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $ControlHandle2, "int", $TBM_SETPOS, "int", 1, "int", $data1[0])
            DllCall("user32.dll", "ptr", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $WindowHandle, "int", $WM_VSCROLL, "int", $SB_LINEDOWN, "int", $ControlHandle2)
            If ControlCommand($WindowHandle, "", "Button2", "IsChecked") And Not $muted Then
                ControlCommand($WindowHandle, "", "Button4", "Check")
                TrayTip("Muted!", "Sound Muted!", 0)
                $muted = True
            ElseIf Not ControlCommand($WindowHandle, "", "Button2", "IsChecked") And $muted Then
                ControlCommand($WindowHandle, "", "Button4", "UnCheck")
                TrayTip("Unmuted!", "Sound Unmuted!", 0)
                $muted = False

Func OnAutoItExit()
;~  If WinExists($WindowHandle) Then
;~      WinClose($WindowHandle)
;~  EndIf
    If ProcessExists($pID) Then
EndFunc   ;==>OnAutoItExit

Lots of commented out code, etc. But as I said, it's old. :)
