    Question Can play audio, but can't stop it

    For the program I am currently working on, I need to be able to simply press my "Play" button to make audio play and my "Stop" button to make the audio stop playing. The play button works, but for whatever reason the stop button does not. I'm not really sure what's wrong.

    Here's the code for the play and stop buttons:

    Java Code:
       private void audBtnPlayActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {
           toggleAudio("test.wav", true);
        private void audBtnStopActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {
          toggleAudio("test.wav", false);
    And the code for toggleAudio:

    Java Code:
     public void toggleAudio(String filename, boolean play) {
            InputStream in;
            AudioStream as;
            try {
                in = new FileInputStream(filename);
                as = new AudioStream(in);
                if (play == true) {
                } else {
    System.out.println("Why won't it stop????!");
            } catch (IOException ex) {
                Logger.getLogger(Auditory.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
    I'll admit, I don't entirely know what I'm doing here - but It still seems like this should work. Help is much appreciated!

    Default Re: Can play audio, but can't stop it

    Hi Lucien,

    The problem you have is both in and as are redeclared when the method is called. This means that the object to which the variables are pointing to is actually a new instance and not the same object as before.

    To correct this declare in and as as global variables and instanciate these upon initial execution.
