Disable double click on quicktime control

Disable double click on quicktime control

Need some help from the gurus on these forums.

My question is : How can I disable click/doubleclick on the quicktime control. I would like movie to be controlled exclusively from my own buttons.

I am trying to create a simple vb.net media player using quicktime.

After installing quicktime, I have added a quicktime qtocontrol.dll to my vb.net toolbox, dragged it onto my form.

I've included in my code


Imports QTOControlLib
Imports QTOLibrary

I then get it to open a movie in the form load event


AxQTControl1.URL = "c:\videos\movie.mpg"
AxQTControl1.AutoPlay = True

Clicking/Double clicking on the quicktime control stops and starts the movie. This is undesirable as I need to control the movie from my own player buttons.

Thanks for any help.

RE: Disable double click on quicktime control

I solved this (in C++) by setting the Disabled property to true - select the control in your form and check out the properties if you have something similar in VB.net - have never used it myself.
