    Mediaplayer

    Hello everybody,

    I'm making an application wich uses the windows multimedia component (OCX).
    When I'm showing a movie, somewhere on my form, when I'm moving my mouse, I
    see the tooltiptext from the buttons, like skip, play etc. But I don't want
    to show them, I've already hide all options from the player
    Does anyone know how I can solve this problem?

    Thanks in advance,

    Sander

    I don't use the mm ocx myself, but I have heard it is buggy.

    I found that the MCISendString API was very easy to use when I started
    programming multimedia apps years ago. Then I moved to the MCIWnd control
    which is the one built into Win32 for C/C++ programmers to use. I
    eventually made a freeware ocx that wraps that API for VB. You can replace
    the mm ocx with either of the 2 APIs above - or you can give my control
    (ezAVI.ocx) a look-see. It may be exactly what you need.
