    Hello all.
    how do I attach a sound track to an object?

    I looked at BaseSound and I should be able to load it, but have no idea on how to do the attachment.

    thanks

    You'll need to create a sound track for the object for starters:

    BaseObject* obj; // object to receive track
    BaseDocument* doc; // document that contains obj

         // Check for Sound track, create if none  
         DescID               descID =     DescLevel(ID_ANIM_SOUND,ID_ANIM_SOUND,0);  
         CTrack*               track =          obj->FindCTrack(descID);  
         if (!track)  
         {  
              track =          CTrack::Alloc(obj, descID);  
              if (!track)     return FALSE; // Alloc Error  
              obj->InsertTrackSorted(track);  
              doc->AddUndo(UNDO_NEW, track);  
         }
    

    Then you'll have to look at the resource:modules:newman:res:description:ctsound.res file for information to set the start time and sound file on the track. These will probably require SetParameter().

    This method has not been tested, so there are no guarantees that it will work.

    Thanks Robert most of the code worked create track, and SetParameter().

    trackRef->SetParameter ( DescID(CID_SOUND_NAME), GeData(fname.GetString()), 0);

    CID_SOUND_NAME takes a string as parameter, but does not get evaluated after been set.

    there should be a function to set the filename or make it evaluate the sound path.

    Maxon engeneers HELP please!!!
