I'll try to keep my questions organised here regarding opening and playing a midi file.
First, and this is likely due to my misunderstanding, but why won't this work?
in my header file...
File fileInput; //the file object used to create the midifile MidiFile midiFileInput; //the midifile to manipulate in code
Then in my constructor...
fileInput = File::getCurrentWorkingDirectory().getChildFile("../../../../Resources/testmidi.mid"); midiFileInput.readFrom(fileInput.createInputStream());
This gives me the error
Non-const lvalue reference to type 'juce::InputStream' cannot bind to a temporary of type 'juce::FileInputStream *'
I'm not sure exactly what this means, but would appreciate a little heads up or point in the right direction.
I have found a similar thread I thought I could pull some info out of, but it is very old, and uses the 'new' and 'T' paradigms I have been told to stay away form in Juce....so I am wary to try to learn from that example (http://www.juce.com/forum/topic/playing-midi-file).
If anyone could help me clear up my misunderstanding, I would appreciate it.
