    The Discussion

      Will it be possible for developers to make use of the internal sounds.  For example, the MessageBox makes a sound when it appears, but If I need to make my own message box style dialog, with a progress bar, will I be able to play the internal sound, or will I have to bundle a copy of it with my app, and play it myself in code?

      Hi mdtauk,

      Out of the box right now, it is not possible for you to reuse the sounds.  There is no way for a SL or XNA app to get to those sounds.

      I do like the idea of packaging the sounds and letting developers use them, similar to what we did for icons.   Can't promise (so don't hold me against it, but will send emails to the right people and see what they share.  Thanks for the suggestion.
