Archived:Custom alarm sounds and categories are ignored on S60 2nd and 3rd Editions (Known Issue)
Custom alarm sounds set using TASShdAlarm::SoundName() are ignored. Also, it is not possible to set custom alarm categories, for example alarms associated with a particular application or application engine.
S60 alarm implementation ignores the custom alarm sounds set using TASShdAlarm::SoundName():
iAlarm.SoundName().Copy("SoundFile"); // ignored
The alarm server is only capable of playing the default clock or calendar alarm sounds.
Also, custom categories, set using TASShdAlarm::Category(), are ignored. Only two categories are supported (KASCliCategoryClock for clock alarms, rest of the category values are interpreted as calendar alarms).
No known solution.
