C#/VB.NET Play System Sound

In order to play one of the system sounds from your C#/VB .NET you can use the ready to use system sounds the Windows uses for common tasks. Basically, there are 5 sounds that Windows presents:

  1. Asterisk
  2. Beep
  3. Exclamation
  4. Hand
  5. Question

Here is a snap example of filling the system sounds to a combo box and play one of them when an item is selected:


        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {

            comboBox1.DisplayMember = "Text";
            comboBox1.ValueMember = "Value";

            var systemSounds = new[]
            {
                new { Text = "Asterisk", Value = System.Media.SystemSounds.Asterisk },
                new { Text = "Beep", Value = System.Media.SystemSounds.Beep },
                new { Text = "Exclamation", Value = System.Media.SystemSounds.Exclamation },
                new { Text = "Hand", Value = System.Media.SystemSounds.Hand },
                new { Text = "Question", Value = System.Media.SystemSounds.Question }
            };

            comboBox1.DataSource = systemSounds;
        }

        private void comboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            ((System.Media.SystemSound)comboBox1.SelectedValue).Play();
        }

That’s it 🙂

Please note, by default most of the sounds are the same, and you can change them in the System Sounds Properties in the Control Panel.

VS/C#/VB “The type exists in both versions” Error

Some .NET libraries or components may use the same type / enum name which can make the Visual Studio compiler generate an error with the message:

“the type exists in both versions”

Visual Studio compiler error

In order to fix that issue, you can do as follow:

  1. Goto References and select one of the libraries that generated this error.
  2. In the Properties change the Alias property to ‘MyAlias’.
  3. Add to the top of the class that used the library:
//Declear the alias name of the library
extern alias MyAlias;

//------------------------------
//The rest of your code...
using System;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Windows.Forms;

That’s it 🙂

From now on you can create a reference to the library like:

MyAlias.TheLibrary.ClassName xyz;

Microsoft GIF Animator for Windows 7/8/10

The Microsoft GIF Animator is another great software from the nineties, this small and useful tool allows you to make animation GIF files from frames (images), easily.

Just add the images to the frames work, set the options, width, height, repeat count the loop and much more, then save the results to a GIF animation file.

Here’s what Wikipedia says about this software:

Microsoft GIF Animator is a historical computer software program for Microsoft Windows to create simple animated GIF files based on the GIF89a file format. It was freely downloadable from the Microsoft Download Center but is now only available through MSDN and on third party download sites. It was also bundled with Microsoft Image Composer and Microsoft FrontPage.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_GIF_Animator

This software was an add-on of the Microsoft Image Composer which is not available anymore, if you still need it you can download it from here.

Image Composer 1.5 for Windows 7/8/10

Microsoft Image Composer 1.5 was released in the nineties and it was my favorite image editor for a long time. Well, today i’m using GIMP in order to edit large and complex images, but for small editing tasks i’m still using this fast and easy to use image editor.

This desktop image editor software is very easy to use, you can add images to the workspace, set filters and designs, save the results to images (png / jpg / gif etc ..) and much more, with a few mouse clicks only.

Microsoft stopped supporting and offering this software a long time ago, it’s understandable, today we are in 2020 and there are plenty of Image Editing solutions around. But still, if anyone still needs to use this great software, I’ve uploaded it here. You can download and install it on Windows 7/8/10, just download the zip file, extract it and hit the setup.exe file.

Display the post excerpt in WP Twenty Fifteen theme

WP post excerpt not working on the WordPress Twenty Fifteen theme?

The post excerpt of wordpress is very useful to display the highlight or the summary of a post, this can help us to turn our WP blogs and our websites to be more readable and convenient to the end users.

Unfortunately I’ve found that the post excerpt is not working on my Twenty Fifteen theme of my WordPress websites, searching around about this issue shows me this might be a bug with the Twenty Sixteen, Twenty Seventeen, Twenty Nineteen and all other versions of the great Twenty X themes.

In order to solve this and to add the excerpt section of your WP posts in the home page, categories, tags etc .. I had to get into the source code of the theme. Basically I don’t like to change the source code of my theme, but if i have to do so I usually change the functions.php by adding a filter.

If the excerpt section of the post is empty, the code above can also display a number of chars from the original post, in order to do so just set the num_of_chars variant to the number of chars you want to display (default is 100).

Here are the stages to add the post excerpt section to your WP Twenty X themes:

1) Go to Appearance->Theme Editor.

Appearance->Theme Editor.
Appearance->Theme Editor.

2) Open the function.php file by clicking on the ‘Theme Functions (functions.php)’.

Theme Functions (functions.php).
Theme Functions (functions.php).

3) Add this code to the end of the functions.php file:

Now the functions.php should look like:

excerpt-filter-code
Show the excerpts of posts in the home page, caegories, tags etc..

That’s it 🙂
That’s it, from now on the excerpts of your posts will be displayed in the home page, categories and in the tags of your wordpress website / blog.

The correct way to display Favicon on Edge browser

I found that it was a problem to display the Favicon of my website in the MS Edge while in Chrome and FireFox there was not any problem.

After playing around it a while I’ve found that the MS Edge does not love relative paths but only absolute global http(s) addresses.

So this is the correct way to display the Favicon in the MS Edge:

<html>
  <head>

    <!-- IE -->
    <link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="favicon.ico" />

    <!-- Edge -->
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="https://www.yourdomain.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

    <!-- other browsers -->
    <link rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" href="favicon.ico" />

  </head>
  ... rest of your page...
</html>
