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)]
