WMPlayer on form

P: n/a
Hi,

I put the WindowsMediaPlayer on a form but van't get it working properly.
When I use the properties of the WMP I find "URL" where I can refer to a
file.

When I place a commandbutton on my form and enter
WindowsMediaplayer1. I get a list of possibilities but there is nothing that
looks loke URL.

How can I use a commandbutton to start WMP with an URL?

Thanks,

Susan

There's a sample created by Helen Feddema :

Playing Audio and Video Files Using the Windows Media Player Control

You can find it in the archon no 138
