Launch sound file with 'log on' button

Launch sound file with 'log on' button

Launch sound file with 'log on' button


I have a default ASP page which is where users type in a username to login to a chat. But at the moment, the Webmaster is unaware that a site visitor wishes to chat, so I was hoping to create a sound alert to notify the Webmaster (the sound should not be heard by the site visitor).

I imagine that the sound would need to load when the user presses the log-in button, and that I would need to use <embed>sound.mp3</embed>, but I am unsure where to put it in my stripped down code below:

CODE -->

Dim mode, errorMessage mode = Request("mode") If (mode = "userLogin") Then Dim userName userName = Server.HTMLEncode(Request("username")) If (countUsers() >= USERS) Then errorMessage = getMsg("error.maximum_users_reached") ElseIf (Len(userName) = 0) Then errorMessage = getMsg("error.missing_username") ElseIf (Len(userName) > MAX_USERNAME_LENGTH) Then errorMessage = getMsg("error.username_length_exceeded", MAX_USERNAME_LENGTH) ElseIf (userExists(userName)) Then errorMessage = getMsg("error.username_in_use") ElseIf (NOT isValidUsername(userName)) Then errorMessage = getMsg("error.invalid_username") ElseIf (isUserNameBlocked(userName)) Then errorMessage = getMsg("error.username_blocked") Else Dim p Set p = New Person p.id = -1 p.name = userName p.roomId = 0 p.ipAddress = Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR") ' new chat user so create new id Set p = addUser(p) ' tell all other users about this new user Call addMessage( _ p.id, _ "-1", _ "<span class=LoggedIn><img src='images/new.gif' height=9 width=9> " & getMsg("user.logged_on", p.name, Now()) & "</span><br>" _ ) Session("user") = p.data ' redirect to new frame and create new user login Response.Redirect("frames.asp") Response.End End If ...... <%= getMsg("login.join_chat", getMsg("application.name") & " " & getMsg("application.version")) %></td> ....... <input type=text name=username value="<%= Server.HTMLEncode(userName) %>" ....... <input type=submit class=btn name=login value="<%= getMsg("button.login") %>" border=0 tabindex=2 title="<%= getMsg("button.login.title") %>"></td>

Thanks for any advice/help.


RE: Launch sound file with 'log on' button

Does the "webmaster" sit in the same room as the webserver?
