Running a Sound File in Pocket IE, in Response to a asp.net event
Posted on 2009-05-13
I have an asp.net website where a person enters an item, and the website basically says, "yes", "no" or "not found." They are running the website on handheld devices, using Pocket IE (the device has an onboard scanner, to input much of the data via bar code.)
Now they want it to make a different sound depending on whether the result was "yes" "no" or "not found". The application is C#/SQL. Although I have found a few solutions that work in Internet Explorer, none of them work in Pocket IE. It is important that I trigger the sound from C# (as the rules governing the yes/no/not found are there), and the sound must play automatically (without the user having to download it or otherwise interact with the screen.) It would be OK to force them to download the sound files to their local device once, but I don't want it to prompt them every time!
