SoundGetWaveVolume, OutputVar , DeviceNumber



The name of the variable in which to store the retrieved volume level, which is a floating point number between 0 and 100 inclusive. The variable will be made blank if there was a problem retrieving the volume. The format of the floating point number, such as its decimal places, is determined by SetFormat.
