Using BEEP sound in PowerShell Scripts.


Hi,

After watching the valentine post of “Jeffery Hicks” I started playing with $([char]) characters. And while working with these characters I found a great character that is character 7.

So what is interesting in character number 7?, it is a Beep Sound. For example if  in your script you are rebooting the server or laptop we can provide 3 beeps for rebooting. Or  we can  set a beep after every task or command finished his task.
Cool isn’t..

try this script.

#### save it as beep.ps1 or so....
Write-Host "I am going to reboot the Laptop after 3 Beep" -ForegroundColor Red
$([char]7)
write-Host "Beep 1 " -ForegroundColor Green
sleep 1
$([char]7)
write-Host "Beep 2 " -ForegroundColor Green
sleep 1
$([char]7)
write-Host "Beep 3 " -ForegroundColor Green
sleep 1
Write-Host "`n"
Restart-Computer -Force -WhatIf
#################################

and the output is like below. Our computer is going to reboot after 3 beeps...
