Unfortunately I am not using one of the common languages used here, so don’t bite my head off at the start.
I am using dBASE Plus. At the moment I am still trying to find my way around using the com object, as there is obviously no documentation for dbase plus. Suffice to say that I can get a lot of info from the com object. But as I am plundering along, I have hit a snag in that I cannot seem to get the cdinfo function to return anything. I suspect that I should get back a object reference.
Here is the code that I am using, it should be pretty simple to understand
n = new oleautoclient(“nero.nero”) … initiate the nero object, returns a valid object which I can inspect
d = n.getdrives(0) … get a reference to the drives, a valid object which I can inspect
d0 = d.item(0) … get a reference to the dvdr/rw drive, a valid object which I can inspect
x = d0.cdinfo(0) … get a reference to the cdinfo object, return nothing
I understand that calling cdinfo causes the ondoncdinfo event to fire. My problem is that for some reason dbase is not surfacing any of the nero events. ie I cannot see any of the events in the inspector
things like d0.ejectcd(), and d0.loadcd() works fine
I can retrieve the device name, get the variaous read and write speeds and available speeds.
So far I havent gone much further than that.
Could somebody explain in simple terms so that I could translate that into something that dbase could understand
