  • vb <> flash

    Hi all,

    Is there a way of communication from vb to flash? I've made my interface, but I would like to give feedback to the interface (spectrum analyzer, or more simple just the current volume setting, or for howlong a track has been playing etc....) ?

    I searched the internet but had no luck, seems to me (please please correct me) that the only thing possible is to write to a textfile (in vb) and let flash read it every second or so?
    If at first you don't succeed.........
    destroy all evidence you tried

            Gutter, how would you go about changing the height of a spectrum analyser in flash?? I am ok about passing the data to flash as a variable, but don't know what to do with it in flash - my actionscript e.t.c. is very poor!

            Cheers

                I do believe it works with all soundcards, too.

                I'm too lazy to upload my code right now, but let me know if you want examples. The included samples should make it easy as pie, though.

                Oh - it's FREE! I looked for YEARS for something like this. Cherish it. SoftwareCave ROCKS.

                  I'm not sure. I ran into this guy's page a few months ago and bookmarked it. I've only glanced at it.

                  I remember it only listens on Line in or Microphone. It would have to be mondified to analyze mp3s.

                  As for the variables, what are you trying to pass to it?

                  The only thing I pass to my flash frontend is the song artist, title, and time. It captures all of the keystrokes and then sends them to VB. What exactly are you trying to do?

                    That's pretty swank. Better than Deeth's stuff. Good find.

                        Damn... I knew you were going to ask that....
                        Okay, well I zipped up the latest version of my (currently operating) winamp control software that I use in my car. Keep in mind, it's customized for my systems (Winamp, MO LCD on com1, VB Link installed - but might work without it???).
                        Anyway, compiled w/install and source are available in the zip file. I'll eventually update my website with more details, but for now, revel in the majesty of the source code.

                        For VB Link stuff, look in:
                        modVbVis.bas (included with their software)
                        frmVis.frm - handles initialization of VB Link values (only displays to LCD, will eventually display to the form, too)

                        Party on,
                        -Pat

                          Why on earth would you want to use wmp when VB Link and Winamp will allow you access to so much more?

                              Well, Winamp sucks at playing videos, I'll give you that.
                              The only other advice I can give you is to get a soundcard that supports the waveout meter. (play a song, open the Play Control app, see if a meter displays the volume level)
                              Go to http://www.planetsourcecode.com, select your programming languange, and search for "visualization". That should help you out.
