Can I launch "cast to device" from VBA eg using the shell function? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In windows 10 explorer, the context menu offers the   "cast to device" option to send media to eg a TV connected to the same network.

    It would be very useful if I could launch this option from VBA eg using the shell function?

    Can you tell me whether this is possible please, and how to do it.

  • Ecurd,

    this is the forum for VB in visual studio Net. 

    Altough there is a VBA forum do I give yourself a low chance in that because this is more about the connection than about the code. 

    Try the Microsoft forums which are more for this kind of questions.

  • It isn't clear what type of VBA application you are working with, but your question should probably be moved to the VBA forum:

  • I haven't done this you may be able to write a C# program that uses the ProjectionManager class and call that from VBA.  You can Google/Bing C# and ProjectionManager.  I am not aware of any Win32 commands to do it.  If you do it manually does it work.  I have 2 Samsung SmartTVs (2013 and 2014 models) and only my 2014 model works even though both show up as options.
