This example plays a sound at a given path at run time.
Compiling the Code
This example requires:
That you replace the file name "c:\Windows\Media\chimes.wav" with a valid file name.
(C#) A reference to thenamespace.
File operations should be enclosed within appropriate structured exception handling blocks.
The following conditions may cause an exception:
The path name is malformed. For example, it contains illegal characters or is only white space (class).
The path is read-only (class).
The path name is null (class).
The path name is too long (class).
The path is invalid (class).
The path is only a colon, ":" (class).
Do not make decisions about the contents of the file based on the name of the file. For example, the file Form1.vb may not be a Visual Basic source file. Verify all inputs before using the data in your application.
