Problem with DDMODAPI_SET_RECFILENAME

Postby wazzzup » Fri Nov 28, 2014 9:31 am

Hi, I'm building a plugin that will start a recording.

I need to set the record file name. My code looks like this

Code: Select all

char *name = "hello.mpg";
LRESULT res = SendMessage (AppWnd, WM_MODULE_MSG, DDMODAPI_SET_RECFILENAME, (LPARAM) name);

The return value is 0, but nothing happens with the file name.
But starting a recording is working fine with this code.

Code: Select all

SendMessage (AppWnd, WM_MODULE_MSG, DDMODAPI_START_RECORD, 0);

What am I missing?

That API function has been broken for a long time, maybe one of the next versions will fix soon.

PS.:

is it possible that DDMODAPI_ADD_LOG is broken as well?


Also, is there a way to display something on the status bar and/or in the system tray balloon tip?

That function has been removed , need to update header filers. You can try Windows API to find status bar and change text etc. since you know the main window handle , you just need to search under that for status bar. There is no way in DD API.

I'll try that, thanks...


while you are at it, could you update the API list and add the type of parameter each function needs?

Thanks again.
