Ringing the Bell in IIS

P: n/a
Hi:

I have a vb.net web application running on an IIS server that has a
sound card and VERY cheap speakers.

I would like to know if there is a way to cause the speakers to make
noice in the event that an event occurs that I want to be notified of.
I don't care if they beep or play music.

Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks,

Fred

Hi Ken:

Thanks for your reply!

The beep function works just fine in a VB.NET program - I can't seem to
get it to work on my IIS server's speakers or bell.

There is a discussion that it needs the "UIPermission" class to operate.
Would this make it work or is this just for vb.net windows apps.

Thanks again for your help.

It works - I noticed I had a "response.redirect" before I rang the bell!

Thanks for your help!
