set the Microphone Recording control volume

my question is in this URL, but i still haven't reach a solution, please help me


I want simply to set the volume of the microphone recording control in DirectSound VB.NET
1 Solution

all of the code pasted above is useable, the idea of compiling in Visual basic (the old version ;-) ) and using in VB.NET is the most simple solution...
Here is the original VB6(!!) source (I downloaded somewhere form MSDN):  http://www.danieltrommel.com/download/volume.zip

This source have I altered to be usable within a Scrollbar in VB6... and next I did make a compilation (not .exe) in VB6 for you in the form of an ActiveX Dll wich you can IMPORT in VB.NET !!!

This is the way you can do this (VERY VERY simple!!) ::

step 1) download my "home-for-you-made" file:  http://www.danieltrommel.com/download/Mic_scroller.ocx

step 2) Start your VB.NET 2003,...

step 3) Select on the TOOLBOX (left on you .net 2003 interface) the section "My User Controls..."

step 4) Press now with your Right-mouse-button on the empty gray area on the toolbox and...

step 5) choose Add/Remove Items

step 6) In the new opened window choose the SECOND tabsheet "COM Components"

step 7) Press the button "Browse" and open your downloaded file (http://www.danieltrommel.com/download/Mic_scroller.ocx)

step 8) Now you should see a new icon appear on you Toolbox > My User Control

step 9) Add this component to your Form(s) like you would do with e.g. Labels, textboxes...

Final ) Run your program to find out that your now able to control your MIC!!!
