How to play two or more audio files one after another without freezing the form?

91 New Member
I have written a small program in which playing two or more files one after another is needed.

This is the Declaration in my BAS Module:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Declare Function sndPlaySound32 Lib "winmm.dll" Alias "sndPlaySoundA" _
  2. (ByVal lpszSoundName As String, ByVal uFlags As Long) As Long

And this is the code I use to play the Audio Files:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. sndPlaySound32 FileName, 0
It can play files one after another, but the problem is that it causes the form to hang or freeze while the file is being played.

How can I let the program to play files in order, but I can stop playing the Audio Files anytime I wish?

Thank you in advance.

What version of VB or VBA is this? VB6 does not have an Application object.

I like to create some audio files for my web site. These are all language files to help the visitor learn a foreign language. There is no music.
