Playing With Sound - TestSnd example

This is a very simple program that I had put together to test out what sounds the watch can make.  The program doesn't really do a lot except poke the hardware a little.  It does use the update routine without the blinking.  Unlike programs which play a tune, this goes straight to the hardware to test out the capabilities and is completely independent of any sound scheme that you might have loaded.

;Name: Test Sound

;Version: TESTSND

;Description: This routine tests the various sound capabilities of the datalink.

;TIP:  Download your watch faster:  Download a WristApp once, then do not send it again.  It stays in the watch!

This code has a few notable sections.

  1. Program specific constants - Nothing special here 
  2. System entry point vectors - Nothing new here either.
  3. Program strings - Of course we changed the strings once again.
  4. State Table(s) - We have two state tables.  Both of these are pretty simple.  StateTable0 has a lot of values instead of using the EVT_DNANY event just for a little variety.  StateTable1 is used just for the increment/decrement mode.  See The State Table for a more complete explaination of this.
  5. State Table Handler0 - For state0, we only really need to handle the initial enter where we put up the banner.  It times out and puts up the sound banner.  When you press the set button, it will play the sound.
  6. Sound playing code - This code simply pokes the current value to the hardware at $28.  When we let go of the button, we make the hardware silent by poking a $0f to that same location.
  7. Main Initialization routine - Nothing really significant here. This is called once when the wristapp is first loaded.  We need to make sure that we set the appropriate bits in WRISTAPP_FLAGS.
  8. State Table Handler1 - Nothing really significant here, it uses the same update routines that most of the other examples use.
