Soundplay()

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I made a gui and a button, when I click the button it has you select the file that you want to soundplay()

I need it to wait until the soundplay() is over before it continues,

Ive tried soundplay("whatever", 1) but it does soundplay() and pauses the whole script so I can't click anything else on the Gui while its playing that song

$song = FileOpenDialog("Title","","(*.*)")
iniwrite(@ScriptDIr & "\myini.ini", "Section", "CurrentSong",$song)
soundplay($song)
iniwrite(@ScriptDIr & "\myini.ini", "Section", "CurrentSong",""); clears current song(because its not playing)
iniwrite(@ScriptDIr & "\myini.ini", "Section", "PreviousSong",$song);makes it the previous song

reason I need it to wait in that part is because if the 'previous song' button is clicked it will always be the current song that it will play. So it won't work to go back a song if I click the button.

anyone have an idea of what I can do to make this work?

If I remember right, there's a sound udf that would allow you to get the length of a sound file...then you could set a timer, and once enough time passed that the song is now over, activate the "previous song" button...is that what you mean?

Good morning,

The UDF is Sound.au3 and is to be found in the "Include" folder of the AutoIt installation. It lets you control the sound files much more comprehensively than SoundPlay. Look in the Helpfile just under SoundPlay for the "_Sound....." commands. I have a background mp3 player running on my machine at the moment which uses this UDF to do practically everything you could ever want.

And if you want to be really up-to-date, RazerM has just released a new beta version, which you can find here:

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...45&start=45

This new version was developed (with a little help from me) to give the correct duration of VBR mp3s and more testing is always welcome.

Your 'play the previous track rather than replay the current' command is something I was thinking about adding to my player. I was looking at the same logic as you, but I intended to keep the current/previous track names as internal variables - only using a single IniWrite function when the player closes. I already IniWrite the name and position of the current file (among other things) on exit so that the player can resume the track on opening - adding another key for the previous track is just a question of adding a line.

Good luck, and please ask again if you need any assistance with Sound.au3.
