I want to rewind a wav file and play it three or four times. How do I do that ?

The following plays only once :

MMControl1.DeviceType = WaveAudio
MMControl1.Notify = False
MMControl1.Wait = False
MMControl1.Shareable = False

MMControl1.FileName = "C:\1.WAV"
MMControl1.Command = "Open" 'app.Path & 
MMControl1.Command = "PlaY"
'WaitForEventsToFinish 100
MMControl1.Command = "Rewind"
MMControl1.Command = "PlaY"
MMControl1.Command = "Back"
MMControl1.Command = "PlaY"

Rewind is "Prev". The below will play "c:\test.wav" and repeat it 4 times afterwards (total of 5 times).


Private iRepeat As Integer, bExecuting As Boolean
Private Sub Form_Load()
    iRepeat = 4
    MMControl1.DeviceType = WaveAudio
    MMControl1.FileName = "c:\test.wav"
    MMControl1.Command = "Open"
    MMControl1.Command = "Play"
End Sub
Private Sub MMControl1_Done(NotifyCode As Integer)
    If NotifyCode = mciNotifySuperseded Then Exit Sub
    iRepeat = iRepeat - 1
    If iRepeat > -1 Then
        MMControl1.Command = "Prev"
        MMControl1.Command = "Play"
        Debug.Print Timer
        MMControl1.Command = "Close"
    End If
End Sub

Oops, remove the additional ", bExecuting As Boolean". Forget to remove some portions when testing. :]
