Hi,

In my background task I play sound continuosly:

      private void bgw_DoWork(object sender, DoWorkEventArgs e)
        {

            myaudio = new Audio();
            while (true)
            {
                myaudio.Play(@"C:\windows\media\ding.wav");
            }
        }

When I click cancel button, in the completed task:

       private void bgw_RunWorkerCompleted(object sender, RunWorkerCompletedEventArgs e)
        {
            myaudio.Stop();          
        }

But the sound is not stopped. do you know the reason?

Thanks,
JT

Hi,

Here is working code for your reference:

 
private void btnAudio_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            SoundPlayer wavPlayer = new SoundPlayer();
            wavPlayer.SoundLocation = @"C:\WINDOWS\system32\LoopyMusic.wav";
            wavPlayer.Play();

            wavPlayer.LoadCompleted += new AsyncCompletedEventHandler(wavPlayer_LoadCompleted);
            wavPlayer.LoadAsync();

        }

        private void wavPlayer_LoadCompleted(object sender, AsyncCompletedEventArgs e)
        {
            ((System.Media.SoundPlayer)sender).Stop();
        }

Open in new window


I hope this helps. Let me know if you need more help.

Hi,

Make sure sound file exists on this path i.e. "C:\WINDOWS\system32\LoopyMusic.wav"

Hi,

I checked c:\windows\media folder in my notebook, I found. ding.wav file. And go this folder (c:\windows\media),
and select ding.wav, and click play. It plays fine.

Do you know why it does not produce sound on the notebook?

Thanks,
JT

Hi,

If you play ding.wav, it's simply a beep. Try referencing some other file.
Also, this way of playing sound is standard and is not specific to any machine. May be you can check some machine configurations...

Thanks.

Hi asim,

Thansk.Your solution does not play sound continuously. Since during uploading file, I'd like
sound playing on until the end of file upload.
Do I miss something here?

Hi,

To play sound continuously, you need to use PlayLooping() method instead of Play();
So code will become:

private void btnAudio_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            SoundPlayer wavPlayer = new SoundPlayer();
            wavPlayer.SoundLocation = @"C:\WINDOWS\system32\LoopyMusic.wav";
            //wavPlayer.Play();
            wavPlayer.PlayLooping();

            wavPlayer.LoadCompleted += new AsyncCompletedEventHandler(wavPlayer_LoadCompleted);
            wavPlayer.LoadAsync();

        }

        private void wavPlayer_LoadCompleted(object sender, AsyncCompletedEventArgs e)
        {
            ((System.Media.SoundPlayer)sender).Stop();
        }

Open in new window

It's working on my machine and also on your desktop machine. So, this has to be configuration issue - as I wrote previously!
