acoustic signals - adding own events
Posted on 1998-08-21
in the control panel for acoustic signals there are several entries defining which sound to play on which event. this does not only include windows-intern events but also those of installed software.
in the registry-key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents... the schemes and labels can be found.
now my question: what do i have to do
a) to programmatically manipulate the "properties of the acoustic signals" (i.e. in the control panel for acoustic signals my own events shall be defined among the others)?
b) in my application to fire an event which causes a predefined sound to be played ?
i know this question is not *easy* but i ain't got no more points at the moment. you know how this comes, i guess...
i'm willing to ask a dummy question for the one who answers this one complete when i've got more points to give the one an adequate amount of points.
any answer solving this problem will be accepted:
url, source fragments, common explanation etc.
i need the answer relatively quick. please - help.
