Code to play embedded WAV file

  • Add the following namespace to the MainPage.xaml.cs file

  • Code to play the .wav file
    void Play_wavFile(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
    StreamResourceInfo _stream = Application.GetResourceStream(new Uri("/AgeCalculator;component/Sound/BirthdayTune.wav", UriKind.Relative));
    SoundEffect _soundeffect = SoundEffect.FromStream(_stream.Stream);
    SoundEffectInstance soundInstance = _soundeffect.CreateInstance();
    soundInstance.Play();
    }
  • To play the wav file on a button press
    Private void button1_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    {
