Well , this is something simple which can be done in 1 line of code if you are using PhoneGap for Windows Phone .

If you are using Windows Phone SDK and developing App in Silverlight or XNA , you might end up using the SoundEffect class to load the sound from the stram and play it for a beep sound .

The PhoneGap provides the method navigator.notification.beep that plays the beep sound .

The methods navigator.notification.beep takes 1 parameter i.e the number of times the beep sound should be made

navigator.notification.beep(3) which makes 3 beep sound .

function Button1_onclick()

How is this done in PhoneGap where in one needs to load the file in silverlight or XNA ?

Well , looks like a file to load the Beep sound is loaded internally in PhoneGp library to achieve this …
