    PlaySound()

    Please show me where I'm being stupid. I've played sounds before from code and now i can't make it work. The sound I'm trying to play is in the nt sounds folder. I insert this line of code into my indicator without any conditions just to test it and no sound is played nor is there an error in the log.

    PlaySound(@"Alert4"); No sound is played, no error and my computer make other sounds without any problem. So it isn't the computer.

    Hello Mike,

    Are you receiving any errors on the Log tab of the Control Center when the alert should be triggering?

    Is this the default Alert4.wav, or did you replace it with a custom .wav file?

        Hello Mike,

        If you're using PlaySound() with a default sound file, you do not need to specify a path with the @ symbol. This should only be used if you are directing the sound outside of the default directory:

        Please try using PlaySound("Alert4.wav");

        If using CalulateOnBarClose = True, this alert will not trigger until the next bar forms.

          cobc is set to false and removed the @ symbol


          What I sent you was PlaySound(@"Alert4");
          Very dumb I changed to this...PlaySound("Alert4.wav"); I forgot to include the file extension.
