LoadSoundSync method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page



Loads a song from the specified file through a secondary thread: as you may know, the only way to know the exact song's duration for MP3 files is scanning the file completely and, for very long files, the use of the LoadSound method could be quite lengthy and could temporarily freeze the user interface of the container application. This method avoids any user interface blocking and, once completed, a SoundSyncLoaded event will be fired.


Accepted audio formats are the same as seen inside the LoadSound method.
