    I am looking into using a Topaz Systems T-L462-HSB signature pad to control windows media player using their LCD ouput OCX file. http://topazsystems.com/Software/sigpluslcd.htm

    What i want to know is, what is the best language to use when creating this program? I want it to run in the tray and have no options other than to exit the program. I haven't coded since college and even then that was visual basic. I know i can find all the info i need to get this working, so if anyone could point me in the right direction that would be great.

    Info I need to pull from WMP:
    Current track name, time remaining & Total length

    Controlling WMP:
    Play, Pause, Next Track, Previous Track

    Basically i will be sending the track $ time info to the screen, and waiting for one of the 4 (play pause next prev.) buttons to be pressed and sending those to WMP. Thanks in advance
