Using MS Agent
Posted on 2006-04-26
I am trying to make an agent appear and speak on a form. I have downloaded the following:
1. microsoft speech recognition engine
2. microsoft text to speech engine
3. microsoft speech API
I have the following code:
Private character As AgentObjects.IAgentCtlCharacter
Dim agent_location As String = "c:\windows\msagent\chars\"
AxAgent1.Characters.Load("Peedy", agent_location & "Peedy.acs") 'problem here
'Set current character to Peedy and show it
agentID = "Peedy"
character = AxAgent1.Characters(agentID) 'problem here
once the agent character has been created, i want to make it appear and speak on different button clicks
button1 - character.Show(0)
button2 - character.Speak(TextBox1.Text)
The problem: AxAgent1 is a control object, which i dont know how to get onto the form. It is of type AxAgentObjects.AxAgent. I have tried 'Project' 'Add reference' and cant find this.
How do i get this control on the form??
