interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, ComCtrls, ExtCtrls, XAPlayer, StdCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Button1: TButton;
    XAPlayer1: TXAPlayer;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
    procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}


procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
//Var
//Player: XAPlayer.TXAPlayer;
Begin
//Player:= Nil;

   XAPlayer1.LoadXAudio;
   XAPlayer1.InputOpen ('C:\charlie rich - the most beautiful girl.mp3');
   XAPlayer1.play;
end;


procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin

Perhaps you have to create it first using its Create method.

Hi geo
Do you mean create the Component?
the component is called XAPlayer, if so
can you show me what the create code should look like
Thanks

Hi,
It depends on what parameters Create method needs. For visual controls the usual syntax is:

Var
  Player: TXAPlayer;
....
Begin
 Player := TXAPlayer.Create(Form1);
 // or Player := TXAPlayer.Create(nil);
 try
  Player.Parent := Form1; // important for visualization
  ....//use it here
 finally
  Player.Free; // free the object at last
 end;
end;

--------
hi meikl :-)

Regards, Geo
