but I'm not seeing where I have that sort of thing to switch over. Does anyone have any ideas how to switch over to tiled from tabbed? I'm fine with the contents of my controls[i] containing the correct information. The tabbed forms look fine. We decided to change the look because we think it will work better with this application. Thanks!
Instead of calling their startup form the default name of Form1, they changed the name to MDIParent1. Whether of a not a form supports MDI is just a property setting on the form. Just look in the Properties box of your form for "IsMdiContainer".
By the way, everyone is moving AWAY from MDI, not towards it.
After that, I guess you'll have a bunch of code to rewrite as you apparently won't being TabControl anymore. The only person who can tell you what you have to do is yourself since you're the one who designed the app in its current form.
But it's filling up my entire area. Do you know how to scale the control's contents down to 1/4 the size? I think once I do that, it won't be tough to figure out how to position it (tiled) in the right location in my form with the other 4 controls I'm adding. It didn't let me say newForm.size = controls[i].size/4. (operator / can't be applied to system.drawing.size and int)
The only way you can override the sound setting is to change the volume yourself, do the beep, then put the volume back where you found it. There is no little magic "override" method you can call.
The big problem with the is that you're changing a setting the user has set for a reason. THe other one is that if you turn the volume up to some arbitrary level, you have no idea how loud the sound really is. It still might not be audible or you might blast the user right out of their chair!
Along with what the others say, the user may have the speakers physically turned down or off.
Or headphones could be plugged in but the user not wearing them.
There is also the possibility that the user is remoted into a system halfway 'round the world.
Perhaps you could allow the user to set a configuration setting to specify the volume to use.
For one application I wrote for a former employer I allowed the user to specify what sound to make (if any) as an alert.
