Alert Sound Problem

I tried using "sc.PlaySound(1);" in a study if my conditions are met... And it plays the sound over and over like 10 times even though the conditions are not met.

Adding this didn't change anything...
"sc.AlertOnlyOncePerBar = 1;"

As soon as I turn the alert on it plays the sound over and over. I know the problem isn't in the study because the study is drawing the signals properly where the alerts should sound.

sc.PlaySound() is unrestricted. If you are hearing an alert sound over and over again, the issue is in your code. This is definite. Or you may not have set 1 for the number of times to play the sound file in Global Settings >> General Settings.

"sc.AlertOnlyOncePerBar = 1;" does not apply to sc.PlaySound().
