Thanks,

Playing Beep :

public void playBeep()
{
    SystemSounds.Exclamation.Play();
}

Playing custom sound:

private void playCustomSound()
{
    SoundPlayer simpleSound = new SoundPlayer(@"c:\Windows\Media\chimes.wav");
    simpleSound.Play();
}

You may need to add name spaces like System.Media.

You can utilize the namespace and its SystemSound and SystemSounds classes (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.media.systemsound.aspx)

The SystemSounds class contains five static properties that you can use to retrieve instances of the SystemSound class. This class in turn contains the Play() method, which you can use to play the wave file associated with the sound in Windows Control Panel. Note that the user can also disable all sounds altogether, which would mean that no sound can be heard through the computer speakers.

To play for example the classical beep sound, you could use the following code:

System.Media.SystemSounds.Beep.Play();
Similarly, you could play the “Question” sound with this code:

System.Media.SystemSounds.Question.Play();
The System.Media namespace is defined in System.dll, so there are no new DLLs you would need to add to your project’s references to use the above code.

You're going to have to spawn a separate thread. You might want to take a look at BackgroundWorker (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.componentmodel.backgroundworker.aspx) or ThreadPool (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.threading.threadpool.aspx).

I'd use wav player (see reference above), use PlayLooping mode, detect when dowloading completes (it depends, I don't know how you download - just handle events, I believe), then call player.stop:

Hi ,

Since I have a background thread handling download file, and I prefer the playing sound thread
not interferering with the background process. So which approach is the best way.

Thanks for your input.

Hi,

Sorry I still don't know how to stop the sound even at the end of uploading file, I stop the
background task where I play sound in the loop. But the sound keeps playing. Please help.

Thanks,
JT
