Multimedia Controls

There is more than one way we can use these different forms of media. One way is to use ActiveX controls to control them. There is one main control in VB which does this, called the (you guessed it!) Multimedia Control. Here is a list of all the multimedia controls, and what they can do:
Code:
+----------------------+-----------------------------------------------+-----------------------------------+
| Name 		       |Belongs to 				       |Description			   |
+----------------------+-----------------------------------------------+-----------------------------------+
|Multimedia Control 	Microsoft Multimedia Control 			Plays CD's and audio files	   |
+----------------------+-----------------------------------------------+-----------------------------------+
|Image Control 		Standard Toolbox 				Displays a specified image	   |
+----------------------+-----------------------------------------------+-----------------------------------+
|Picture Box 		Standard Toolbox 				Allows you to resize an image etc. |
|									More advanced than Image Control   |
+----------------------+-----------------------------------------------+-----------------------------------+
|Animation Control 	Microsoft Common Controls-2 Version 5.0/6.0 	Plays animations (*.avi)           |
+----------------------+-----------------------------------------------+-----------------------------------+
You will probably find that some of these controls are not on your standard components toolbar. To add it, select the Project menu, and click Components. This is located near the bottom of the menu. Scroll down the list of available components, and check the box next to the item in the Belongs To column. For example, if you want to use the Animation Control, check the box next to Microsoft Common Controls. Then click OK. You will now see a new icon in your toolbox.
