It depends on the range you have set for the scrollbar. Assuming you set the scroll range to "0 <$insong.length>", use "did -c Dialog ID $insong.pos".

Well you should use
.timernamedtimersareeasiertoidentify 0 1 did -c mp3 45 $!insong.pos

and turn it off by .timernamedtimersareeasiertoidentify off


The $inmp3 and $mp3() are deprecated, you should use the new $insong and $sound() identifiers, because sooner or later the old $*mp3* identifiers will be removed.

$sound(filename|type)
Returns information about the specified file if a filename
was specified, or the associated folder for a filename or
file type, where type can be wave, midi, mp3, wma, ogg.

When used with an mp3 files it supports the same properties
as $mp3().

Note: this replaces $wavedir, $mididir, $mp3dir, and $mp3().
These are still supported for now but no longer documented.

$insong
Returns information about the mp3, wma, or ogg file that
is being played, same properties as $inmp3.

Note: this replaces $inmp3, which is still supported for
now
but no longer documented.

}
.timerpos 0 1 did -c mp3 42 $inmp3.pos

use:
.timerpos 0 1 did -c mp3 42 $!inmp3.pos
that will update the identifier in the timer

this time i managed to get it to scroll using range 1000
but because the mp3 pos is 100000 + is goes stright to the end
so does anyone know how to set the range of the scrollbar to either an alias or a variable of the mp3's length?
thanx for the help so far smile

From mirc.hlp
scroll "text", id, x y w h, style (top left bottom right horizontal range N N)

Note the N N, it is a range, e.g 0 65535

Iin your 'splay' event/alias/action/whatever, put /did -z mp3 42 0 $insong.length

-z does work, for me anyway.

Type /did -z mp3 42 0 2 and then try scrolling with the arrow buttons.
