The MakeNoise Function


The MakeNoise Function

Sometimes, particularly when debugging a complicated template, you might want to be notified in some way that the execution has reached a particular place in the template. «MakeNoise()» will do this, by making a sound when it is executed.

In fact, the function takes one parameter, which is the name of the Windows system sound that will be produced.  This can take the following values:

«MakeNoise('Asterisk')»
«MakeNoise('Beep')»
(which is the equivalent of «MakeNoise()»)
«MakeNoise('Exclamation')»
«MakeNoise('Hand')»
«MakeNoise('Question')»

The actual sounds emitted will differ from one Windows operating system to another, so try them out to see which will fit your purposes.
