"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

DeviceType Property (Multimedia MCI Control)

Specifies the type of MCI device to open.

Syntax

[form.]MMControl.DeviceType[ = device$]

Remarks

The argument device$ is the type of MCI device to open: AVIVideo, CDAudio, DAT, DigitalVideo, MMMovie, Other, Overlay, Scanner, Sequencer, VCR, Videodisc, or WaveAudio.

The value of this property must be set when opening simple devices (such as an audio CD that does not use files). It must also be set when opening compound MCI devices when the file-name extension does not specify the device to use.

Data Type

String


Cheers!
