Hello All - a newbie question, how do you add sound to an alert box. Ex. an alert box pops up and goes,"ding".

thanks in advance

you cannot put a sound to an alert. The alert sound - is what the user specifies on there computer. You can though make a function that plays a sound when the user hits okay on an alert.

Thanks AC!

Is there a way to write a whole new function that includes sound and some popup window for the alert?

Sure no problem here it is.

FOR IT TO WORK YOU NEED a SOUND IN THE EMBED!!!

----------


<script langauge="javascript">

var popup="http://www.yahoo.com"
var alertMessage="This is an alert hehehe"

function userAlert(){

alert(alertMessage)
document.jukebox.play()
window.open(popup,"def")

}
</script>


<a href="javascript:userAlert();">Click Here</a>

<embed src='SoundURLHere' autostart='true' hidden='true' loop='true' name="jukebox">

------------

The popurl=The page you want to popup
The alertMessage=What you want the alert to say
The SoundURLHere=The Directory to the sound

Hope this works for ya:D:D:D

there is also the possibility of using vbscript to pop up different types of alert boxes but i dont know if you can then interact with javascript.
