Accepted Solution

Playbook <audio> not playing.

Hello Experts,


I am trying to play a click sound  when the button is clicked in my application , I am unable to get the solution. 

Currently I am using the following code :


var audio = document.createElement('audio');
audio.controls = true;


Please help me to play the sound when the button is clicked.

Re: Playbook <audio> not playing.

Something like
button.addEventListener("click", function() {audio.play();}, 0);
should do it? Of course, you'll have to have created the button before this code. If that doesn't work: - Make sure the "audio" object you created is in scope at the point you execute the above code (or give it an id and get it) - Make sure the wav file is not some format unsupported on the device - Make sure you have the full and correct path to the sound file
