Need some media controls

P: n/a
I am building an application and I require some media player buttons (play,
record, fast forward etc). They won't be controlling standard audio though.
There doesn't seem to be a set with VB.Net so I pinched the VB6 ones.
However they don't work too well as you have to load it with a media file
before you can enable some of the buttons, and I don't have a media file to
play.

I've been trying to make up some graphics but the result looks awful. Any
suggestions as to what I could use? There must be loads of them around.

Thanks

I've got a user control that I created which inheirits from the panel class
and has media controls which resize to fit the panel size. They look pretty
good but nothing fancy. You can set all colors thru properties. It includes
a sliding play position control, sliding volume control, play, pause, stop,
previous, next, and Mute. Events are triggered when the controls are
clicked. It's in VB.Net and is pretty self explanatory. Not much
documentation with it but source code is pretty simple and easy to figure out.

Let me know if you want it (e-mail me at dh*****@houston.rr.com - use
subject line MEDIA Control) only requirement is for you to let me know what
you think of it.

I tried to reply to your e-mail to send the control as a zip file but got a
message that it was illegal attachment. It was only the source code (not the
dll) as a .zip file. I sent it to my son also and he got it ok. Maybe your
e-mail provider won't allow or accept .zip attachments.
