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():

TASShdAlarm iAlarm;
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.
