Tracks -property in MediaPlayer -object ?

Hi !

D2 help shows this exampel code to skips to the beginning of the last track on a CD audio device.


with MediaPlayer1 do
if DeviceType = dtCDAudio then
  for I := 1 to Tracks-1 do

>gives types don't fit -message?

1. How do you perform a simple task (by RadioGroupBox) to
go to the beginning of certain track and to the beginning of
certain track position (say at 2 min. 30 sec. on same track)

Many thanks for bothering you!

With the following you can seek to any (Trac, Minute, Second)
But besure to add the MMSystem to you USES clause:

procedure SeekToTrack(M : TMediaPlayer; Trac, Minute, Second: Byte);
 with M do
 if DeviceType = dtCDAudio then
   // we set the time to Track Minute Second Frame Format
   TimeFormat := tfTMSF;
   // This macro makes up a position from vars Frame is 0
   // for CDs
   Position := mci_Make_TMSF(Trac, Minute, Second,0);
