SystemSounds in F#

Posted by Rey Dacoco in

To play a system sound in Visual F#, use the SystemSounds object. For a simple example on using the SystemSounds object, try the following:


// Learn more about F# at http://fsharp.net
//use the f# standard library
open System
//use media classes
open System.Media
//specify the memory location of the classes used in drawing objects
//required to draw the listbox item text
open System.Drawing
//specify the location of the form class
open System.Windows.Forms
//creates a form and assign a "Play System Sounds" caption to it
let soundform=new Form(Text="Play System Sounds",StartPosition=FormStartPosition.CenterScreen,AutoScaleMode=AutoScaleMode.Font)
//creates a label and set its Text to “Count”
let lbl=new Label(Text="System sounds:", Location=new System.Drawing.Point(20,10),AutoSize=true)
//makes a listbox
let soundlistbox=new ListBox(Sorted=true,Location=new System.Drawing.Point(20,30),FormattingEnabled=true)
//adds an item to the listbox when the form is loaded
soundform.Load.Add(fun items->
     //adds the items and ignore the passed index position values
                    soundlistbox.Items.Add("Asterisk")|>ignore
                    soundlistbox.Items.Add("Beep")|>ignore
                    soundlistbox.Items.Add("Exclaimation")|>ignore
                    soundlistbox.Items.Add("Hand")|>ignore
                    soundlistbox.Items.Add("Question")|>ignore)
soundlistbox.Click.Add(fun playsound->
                    if soundlistbox.SelectedIndex=0 then
                        SystemSounds.Asterisk.Play()
                        MessageBox.Show("Asterisk", "System Sounds", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Asterisk)|>ignore
                    if soundlistbox.SelectedIndex=1 then
                        SystemSounds.Beep.Play()
                        MessageBox.Show("Beep", "System Sounds", MessageBoxButtons.OK)|>ignore
                    if soundlistbox.SelectedIndex=2 then
                        SystemSounds.Exclamation.Play()
                        MessageBox.Show("Exclaimation", "System Sounds", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Exclamation)|>ignore
                    if soundlistbox.SelectedIndex=3 then
                        SystemSounds.Hand.Play()
                        MessageBox.Show("Hand", "System Sounds", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Hand)|>ignore
                    if soundlistbox.SelectedIndex=4 then
                       SystemSounds.Question.Play()
                        MessageBox.Show("Question", "System Sounds", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Question)|>ignore) 
                                           
//displays the label to our form
soundform.Controls.Add(lbl)      
//adds the listbox to our form    
soundform.Controls.Add(soundlistbox)           
soundform.Show()
Application.Run(soundform)
