so i've been looking for a Module to set the windows system volume. i believe i found what i was looking for in tVol 0.2, but it lacks bangs for volume up and down. what it DOES have is volumeget and volumeset, now i could utilize this for my multimedia keyboard if only i knew how to use math operators in hotkeys.rc
something along the lines of
*hotkey .none vk_volup !tvolset(tvolget+blah)
anybody know of the proper syntax?
I'd just do something lame in mzscript probably:
*script bang volup
*script exec !varset volume tvolget
*script exec !tvolset %#volume + 5%#
Certainly not the best way to do it though.
*hotkey .none vk_volup !execute [!tvolget][!parseevars !tvolset %#tVolVolume +- blah%#]
Should work, but i don't have tested it.
@xcal: i did look into v_bang lite, and it didn't seem to be dealing w/ the system volume (at least not the one you get to from the Windows Play Control)
@ls-universe: could you possibly explain the code or find a readme for xlabel for me? i just looked around for a half hour and found a lot of people lack the readme anyways, but the one reference i found in the help cfg for "!execute" only shows half the code and doesn't really explain what is going on anyway. basically, i have no clue what your code means, and would LOVE an explanation so i could get this running.
@xcal: i'm sorry, i'm a fool. in the v_bang readme, it specifies that a channel needs to be named. i specified 0... which DIDN'T affect the system volume. apparently blank does affect the system volume. thanks for your help guys. v_bang-lite solves my problem after all.
In case you're still interested in xLabel, ...!
1. Check http://www.ls-universe.info
2. Check out http://www.xdocs.ls-universe.info
3. The Docs are in the Docs folder (or always in the Module Archives (.zip) in yoour Litestep/Modules/Archive).
If they (xLabel.chm) aren't in the Litestep/Modules/Docs folder, then see 4.
4. Update NetloadModule2 to version 2.5.0 (maybe even the LSBuild) -> there's a link at http://www.ls-universe.info
It would be great if you shared what you ended up doing to adjust your volume with !bang commands. Just copy and paste in a new forum message in the "code" section...
@DewAzureToad: like i said, i ended up using v_bang. it was just that simple. the bang commands offered by v_bang do control the WINDOWS volume, unlike so many of the other volume controls out there.
