AxWindowsMediaPlayer & File String

Hi Guys,

I have a form which has about 35 buttons on it. Each button plays a music file. At present the string I use to determine which file to play is like this....

        Dim playlist As WMPLib.IWMPPlaylist
        playlist = Me.AxWindowsMediaPlayer1.newPlaylist("Playlist B1", "")
        Dim item As WMPLib.IWMPMedia = AxWindowsMediaPlayer1.newMedia(Form2.TextBox1.Text)
        playlist.appendItem(item)
        AxWindowsMediaPlayer1.currentPlaylist = playlist

As you can see it finds the file location from the text box on form2. Is there a way of getting it to read directly from the database rather than from the text box on form2?

The database itself has 1 table called Locations and it has 35 fields (1 for each button) labeled Cue 1, Cue 2, etc. etc.

if you have fetched the datarow  from database
then it would be something like
 Dim playlist As WMPLib.IWMPPlaylist
        playlist = Me.AxWindowsMediaPlayer1.newPlaylist("Playlist B1", "")
Dim item As WMPLib.IWMPMedia
for each col as DataColumn in ds.Tables(0).Columns
item=  AxWindowsMediaPlayer1.newMedia(ds.Tables(0).Rows(0).Item(col.ColName))
 playlist.appendItem(item)
  AxWindowsMediaPlayer1.currentPlaylist = playlist
end for
