Fader.StartManualFading method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page



Manually starts the cross-fading procedure on the Automatic Fader without waiting to reach the trigger set through the Fader.FadeStartFromEnd property. A started cross-fading procedure can be stopped through the Fader.Stop method.


This method requires a previous call to the Fader.Init method and that the two involved players have a loaded song.


When the embedded fader is executing a playlist predisposed to work with volume automation, calling this method during the volume sliding, automatically started by the volume automation procedure, will fail reporting back the ERR_PLAYER_BUSY error: you can know if a volume sliding is still occurring on one of the involved players by querying the StreamVolumeIsSliding method on both players.


For details about using the Automatic Fader refer to the How to use the Automatic Fader section.
