closing a avi

I have no problem loading and playing an avi using mcisendstring but I cannot get the black window to close automatically when the video is finished...  I can close it with an command button with   i = mciSendString("close movie", RS, 128, cb)

How would you determine that the file has played and it is time to "close movie"   Thanks.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What about the time that the clip takes to play? would that help to tell if the video has played?
