Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

How do I add sound to my app?

I have searched high and low and cannot seem to find a code example of how to add sound (attach a WAV file) to the opening of my application.

You can use the following code:

Declare the following API calls:

Function boolean sndPlaySoundA( &
 string SoundName, uint Flags ) Library "WINMM"
Function uint waveOutGetNumDevs() Library "WINMM"
You can play a sound with the following code:

uint lui_NumDe vs

lui_NumDevs = WaveOutGetNumDevs()
IF lui_NewDevs > 0 THEN
  sndPlaySound( "filename.wav", modeofplay(INT) )

where: modeofplay
0 - play synchronously
1 - play asynchronously
2 - don't use default sound if u can't find file
3 - 1&2
8 - loop the sound until next sndPlaysound
10- don't stop any correctly playing sound
