Gets a value indicating whether the user prefers that an application present information in visual form in situations when it would present the information in audible form.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public:
static property bool ShowSounds {
	bool get ();
}

Property Value

Type: System::Boolean
true if the application should visually show information about audible output; false if the application does not need to provide extra visual cues for audio events.

The ShowSounds property indicates whether a user preference has been set that indicates the user prefers visual information displays for audio events.

You can use this property to provide accessibility mode features to an application.

The following code example lists all properties of the SystemInformation class in a ListBox and displays the current value of the property in a TextBox when a list item selected.
