InitEditor method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page



Initializes the control: the call to this method is mandatory and must be performed before calling any other method that will use an editing related functionality, possibly in the container form initialization function: calling this method inside the constructor function of the container form will not work and could cause unpredictable results.


In case you should not need playback support, you may replace this call with the call to the InitEditorNoPlayback method.


In case the component should be instanced in conjunction with the Active DJ Studio component and/or the Active Sound Recorder component, this method should be always called after calling the initialization methods of the other components (InitDJSystem for the DJ studio component and InitRecordingSystem for the recorder component).


If the multimedia engine shouldn't find any enabled or valid output device, the container application would be notified through the WarnNoOutputDevice event.
