Hello ALL
I am writing A DLL
and have problem with the procedure below
It wont play the song...


///////////////////////// CODE  ////
Procedure CREATE;
         Var
         CHAN : HSTREAM;
       
Begin
Chan:=0;
 BASS_StreamFree(chan);
    chan := BASS_StreamCreateFile(FALSE, 'C:\charlie rich - the most beautiful girl', 0,0,0);
    BASS_StreamPlay(chan, FALSE, BASS_SAMPLE_LOOP);
     end;

//////
AS you can see the song is in C:\
the error message i get for this is

uncompatible type String and Pointer.

But this same code works in a normal delphi app
but not from My DLL
Thanks in advance Dinkleburger

I am completely unfamiliar with the BASS_StreamCreateFile routine, but given the error message that you are getting, I am going to guess that the song title parameter should be PChar. Try this:


chan := BASS_StreamCreateFile(FALSE,PChar('C:\charlie rich - the most beautiful girl'), 0,0,0);



Good luck!!
