'For to long I searched for a simple bac
'     kground music tag line. Or, for a way to

'     do "Play" and "Stop" functions, that I c
    '     ould use on Form_Load.
    'This is not award winning, it's just he
    '     re to help those in need. Simple and dir
    '     ectly to the point. I hope this helps, f
    '     eel free to e-mail me if needed.
    'To make your music (midi file) begin at
    '     startup, simple add this to Form_Load.

Private Sub Form_Load()

Temp = mciSendString("play " & "NameOfMidiHere.mid", 0&, 0, 0) End Sub
'Note: You must use an "Unload". Otherwi ' se, the music continues when the applica ' tion is closed. Which could be used to t ' he benefit of a prank or annoyance. lol. ' .. To do that just add this line: Private Sub Form_Unload(Cancel As Integer)
Temp = mciSendString("stop " & "NameOfMidiHere.mid", 0&, 0, 0) End Sub
'To make a "Play" button (I used a label ' , use what you wish): Private Sub lblMusicOn_Click()
Temp = mciSendString("play " & "NameOfMidiHere.Mid", 0&, 0, 0) End Sub
'Now for the "Stop" button. Private Sub lblMusicOff_Click()
Temp = mciSendString("close " & "NameOfMidiHere.Mid", 0&, 0, 0) End Sub
'I understand there are probably better ' and more sufficient ways to do this. I'm ' sure the critics will point that out. Th ' is is just one method, and it works. For ' a beginner, that's what matters most of ' the time. I hope this helps someone...

Sorry about the commenting structure.  
I submitted this three times, and 
called it quits.  I'm afraid I don't 
understand how the commenting syntax 
works. lol
