I want to create a form on which are placed several command buttons. When the command button is pressed I want to be able to play a series of short wave files. Does anyone know how the coding for this is done. Appreciate any help offered.

' Name: Easily Play a WAV File
' Description:This source code will easi
' ly allow you to play a WAV file from wit
' hin your Visual Basic application WITHOU
' T using an ActiveX Control. The two most
' amazing facts about this source code tha
' t amazed me were:
• The value For the "flag." I had absolutely no idea what to Do for the flag. But I took a good guess at it, and I got it!
• It will actually play the WAV file from the Visual Basic environment (you don't need to compile it to hear the sound).

Am I confused or can someone explain to me how you can put any kind of a copyright on a simple API call?

You can have copyright for a single word as long as you pay for it at the Law.
MeanWhile, people can get free source code here billion times larger than your copyrights-protected project.
If you doubt, search for the keyword in this web site.

Don't worry about the copyright.
It is just one way for people to make themselves feel good.
And I absolutely agree with what you are saying.
How else are you suppose to do it other than the above code?
Besides, that copyright is automatically added to every code that is submitted to planet-source-code.com, it is only there to protect those who have a legitimate reason to copyright something.
