Hello, rajender123.... I kept my word... after some programming:

http://www.danieltrommel.com/download/SetPlaybackVolume.zip

I hope this is what you want. I've included a sample project because the Slider (like in sndvol32.exe) isn't VERY difficult to make in VB6 but easy in VB.NET. I also changed the OCX so you can call a sub "SetVolumeMain()" and "SetVolumeMic" ...

Succes!!

Hello;

>> First of all:
 
   Did you try to build the FULL ORIGINAL project (without changing!) from the website above? Did it work?

>> The problem you asked about in your last post;

   Is it about the original project OR did you tried to make your own by copying the OCX to your own directory?

To use the SetVolumePlayback2.ocx in a new (your own) project; you have to do this:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1) Start your VB.NET 2003,...

2) Create a new project

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

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

5) choose Add/Remove Items

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

7) Press the button "Browse" and open the OCX file  "SetVolumePlayback2.ocx"

8) Now you should see a new icon appear on you Toolbox > My User Control > "Volume" (could be named different!)

9) Add this component to your Form

Now have I implemented nothing graphical on the OCX thing.... you just have to name it:

10) Select the added component and name it "MyVolume" (or so)

11) Now in your code you will be able to call these functions:

            MyVolume.SetVolumMain( value )

      and
           
            MyVolume.SetVolumMic( value )

     where 'value' is supposed to be a value between 0 and 65536
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Get it? You just have to name (!) the added OCX component, and than you can set both volumes via that name!

First off all; I feel a little disappointed it had to come to a forced points accept!!


I think I understand what you mean...

The 'problem' is that the Volume slide is ONLY made to SET the volume. If you had ASK for it, I had included a GETVOLUME method wich would retrieve the current volume and set the Volumebar so...

So it is set to zero because it doesn't retrieve (would be the GETVOLUME method...) the current Volume, it is set to the initial value of the bar itself; zero.

You could solve the problem by storing the last volume settings of your application in a configuration file (on exit?), and when you open the program again, you would read the config-file again and set the volume.

ONE BIG advantage of this is: when the Volume is changed by another application, you would restore always the last (correct) volume setting!
