How to: Play a Sound Embedded in a Resource from a Windows Form
You can use the SoundPlayer class to play a sound from an embedded resource.
private void playSoundFromResource(object sender, EventArgs e)
System.Reflection.Assembly a = System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();
System.IO.Stream s = a.GetManifestResourceStream("<AssemblyName>.chimes.wav");
SoundPlayer player = new SoundPlayer(s);
This example requires:
Importing the System.Media namespace.
Including the sound file as an embedded resource in your project.
Replacing "<AssemblyName>" with the name of the assembly in which the sound file is embedded. Do not include the ".dll" suffix.
