B3001 - How do I stop a Sound icon when it is playing?

by - Joseph Ganci

Is there a way to stop playing a sound icon?  If the user hits a STOP button I want the audio to stop playing and then there are menu buttons on the screen so based on the next mouse click that is where the user goes but the previous audio needs to just stop playing when the STOP button is  pressed.  Is there a command that does this - I can't find it?  Any suggestions?

There are a couple of ways to do this. One way is to use a variable in the Play Until TRUE field. The simpler way is to simply place a Sound icon under the Stop button that contains a quarter second of silence. That will effectively stop the previous sound immediately.
