    Playsound

    I am trying to play a sound in a custom indicator and the sound doesn't play. No errors show in the log and I put a print statement in the same location as the playsound. The print statement works just as it should but the ding or sound doesn't play. sound is working on my computer. I checked that again to be sure. Also i realize that playsound doesn't work on historic data. I am testing on live data. I created the sounds folder in C:\Documents and Settings\Mike\My Documents\NinjaTrader 6 and copied the ding.wav to that folder.

    Here's the code:
    if (Bars.Period.Id == PeriodType.Volume)
    {
    remainingVol = (
    int)(Bars.Period.Value - Volume[0]);
    if (remainingVol <= amountLeft)
    {
    PlaySound(
    "ding.wav");
    Print(
    "ding " + remainingVol + " " + amountLeft);
    }
    }

    Again, the output window show the "ding" being printed but I don't hear the sound and sound is working on my computer.

    thanks,
    Mike

    As documented here http://www.ninjatrader-support.com/H...PlaySound.html sound files needed to be located in C:\Program Files\NinjaTrader 6\sounds.

    Also: The logs will indicate that error.

      PlaySound

      well duh...i put it in the nt6\sounds folder in mydocuments instead of the one in program files. even though i had it in the wrong place, the log did not show any error. anyway, it works now.

      thanks
