PlaySound method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page



Plays a sound that has been previously loaded through one of the many methods having the "Load" prefix like LoadSound or LoadSoundFromMemory.


By default playback continues till the end of the sound stream until the final position is not moved through the PlaySoundMoveFinalPos method.


In case the given player should have been loaded with a video clip, the call to this method would have the same effect of the VideoPlayer.Play method.


A successful call to this method will fire the SoundPlaying event. Once the sound has been performed completely, the control will fire the SoundDone event.
