how to use VB Script control goldwave?

Post by roberts » Sun Mar 25, 2007 11:32 am

hi,

I want to use vbscript (.vbs) to control GoldWave,
like (example is for FlashGet)

Code: Select all

set JetCarCatch=CreateObject("JetCar.Netscape")
call JetCarCatch.AddUrl("");
how to do like this?

Thanks in advance.

That would only be possible if GoldWave exported COM objects, which I don't think it does.

It depends what you want to do. Batch Processing can be done from the command line (see the manual for details). You'd have to create processing/conversion presets in advance, then specify those on the command line when running GoldWave within a VB Script.

I'm not familiar with VB Script, but searching on Google for "run program VB Script" should give some more information.

vbscript information

I just wanted to add for clarity:

VBscript is typically used to allow someone to manipulate actual objects and run commands in the binary executables of the program. This is much more powerful than batches and dos scripting.

Someone writing a VBscript to control Goldwave would be able to instantiate an actual running instance of Goldwave and pick and choose from menu commands, filters, etc. by calling the same functions that Chris assigned to those menu options.

I do believe that Chris would have had to expose those functions through a COM (or .NET) interface and register them with the operating system in the installation for this to happen.

That level of control is not possible. GoldWave does not expose any functionality through COM or .NET.

REZ!

Any update on this? I was hoping to be able to manipulate GoldWave via .NET so that I can record audio using a global hotkey or upon a certain event. Is this still not possible?

If there's some work arounds, let me know!

Thanks,

Your .NET app doesn't need to manipulate GoldWave to record audio. Look here:
