Media Player Options BCB6


This is question about MediaPlayer component from System tab in BorlandBuilder 6.0 for C++.

I am curious is there any member function of MediaPlayer that allows us to check is MediaPlayer playing something or not? For example by returning a bool variable as true for playing, and false for not playing.

Thank you!

Hi 2ffat, thanks for asking!

I couldn't find the answer so I used another component - WindowsMediaPlayer, ActiveX component.

Nevertheless, there ain't such function for that component too, but there is an alternative!

You have "playState" member variable, and here you got list of its possible values: Link

Then you can use PlayStateChange event ( I'm not sure if name is 100% correct) to put switch which will check if playState has reached value of 8 ( just ended playing media), afterwards you can decide what will you do with WMPlayer.

( 2ffat, by the way, I have successfully solved my problem with iterating through audio files too!)

Greets! I hope someone finds my answer useful!
