Pause in Code for two audio files to run

Hello,

I've got some indicators that sound alerts when signalled. I'd like to run two audio .wav files simaltaneously. The purpose would allow me to have alerts on two separate timeframes with a similar message but could have a separate file that picks up the chart period.

 
Code
1. alert with "5RangeChart.wav"
<pause>
2. alert with "ema_cross_long_entry".wav
Hope that's understood.

Appreciate your help.

Best thing is probably to make a new wav file for each conditional, so you can just use one PlaySound().

The problem is PlaySound() will execute simultaneously (as you probably figured out) so if you issue them back-to-back it's no good.

If you put in a C# delay, then literally the entire chart will halt, and especially for backtesting this is a huge no-no.

The other option would just to keep track of when you played the first sound, then play the second one later. You could use the Timer() code to do this if you are really wanting perfection, otherwise you could just check on each new tick and look at the Time stamp.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Thanks, Mike, didn't think about the chart actually halting.

That would be NO GOOD!

thanks,

You could also build a sound file with a pause in it, then you still only issue a single playSound()

You can have the sounds play in another thread, and only launch the threads on non-historical bars, right? Then the delay won't affect anything else ninja is trying to do.

Using system timer is the best way, if perfection is needed, buy if the indicator can be run on cobc=false then just tracking the ticks/timestamp should be good enough and a lot simpler to implement for the average ninja programmer.
