I have read plenty of posts about people trying to stop the windows beep that occurs when you hit the enter key in a textbox that does not accept multiple lines, but I am trying to duplicate that tone.  Can anyone tell me how to duplicate the tone you get in a textbox when hitting the enter key????

I am not doing this within another method.  I have tried console.beep and it appears to use the internals of the pc to generate a tone as opposed to the windows tone generated through the speakers within the textbox.  I am wanting to duplicate the same sound.  What I have is a datagrid cell I am restricting text length.  If the text has reached maximum size, I want to generate that tone.

[DllImport("winmm.dll", SetLastError = true, CallingConvention = CallingConvention.Winapi)]
static extern bool PlaySound(string pszSound, IntPtr hMod, SoundFlags sf);
 
[Flags]
public enum SoundFlags : int
{
    SND_SYNC = 0x0000,  // play synchronously (default)
    SND_ASYNC = 0x0001,  // play asynchronously
    SND_NODEFAULT = 0x0002,  // silence (!default) if sound not found
    SND_MEMORY = 0x0004,  // pszSound points to a memory file
    SND_LOOP = 0x0008,  // loop the sound until next sndPlaySound
    SND_NOSTOP = 0x0010,  // don't stop any currently playing sound
    SND_NOWAIT = 0x00002000, // don't wait if the driver is busy
