Hi all,

I am not sure where to create this topic, so I thought the GENERAL Forum would be the right place.

Although I am planning to get this Functionality with MS SQL Trigger but I believe it also Applies to ORACLE DB Triggers.

How can I generate a SOUND "BEEP" when a Trigger Fires on the DB? Our Objective is to Notify the User that there is something Major to act on.

The Trigger is Inserting a Record in a table when it Fires. So the BEEP will have to sound up when the record is inserted. When the User Updates a FLAG on the record, then the Sound should disappear.


Suggestions and Comments are much appreciated.

Thanks

Trigger executes on SERVER, so no beep on CLIENT.
In addition, trigger is in PL/SQL and purpose of PL/SQL is not to interact with user.
Do this in the application side.

Thanks Michel,

I was under this impression that the Logic should be done in the Application and on the Client Side.

I will check the code in the application.

Regards,
Baz

Send an email. The email handler can 'beep'.
