How to play sounds (.wav. And using Visual Basic)

Posted by AndiProg [send private reply] at September 15, 2002, 01:59:07 PM

This is simple code for playing sounds (.wav) using visual Basic. first create a module and paste or type the following code:

Private Declare Function sndPlaySound Lib "winmm" Alias "sndPlaySoundA" (ByVal lpszSoundName As String, ByVal uFlags As Long) As Long
Public Enum SND_Settings
End Enum

Public Sub Play(fname As String, Optional Settings As SND_Settings = SND_ASYNC)
Dim retval As Long
retval = sndPlaySound(fname, Settings)
End Sub

Then, to play the sound you want, use the play command on a control (Command Buttons are exellent.):

Play "c:\song.wav"

NOTE: The filename "song" can be changed to any .wav file you saved on your disk

and why should one not simply type sndPlaySound( "name", 1 ); ?

isn't there a PlaySound in some other library which is the same, but includes a sound application handle?
