JavaFX: Play a sound when ever something is clicked

May 31, 2017, at 1:55 PM

I currently have my EventHandler here:

            new EventHandler<MouseEvent>() {
                public void handle(MouseEvent e) {
                    if (targetData.containsPoint(e.getX(), e.getY())) {
                        double x = 50 + 400 * Math.random();
                        double y = 50 + 400 * Math.random();
                        targetData.setCenter(x, y);
              ; //play hitsound
                        points.value++; //add points
                    } else {
                        points.value = 0; //miss

I also have my audio setup like so:

    String hitNormal = ("hit.mp3");
    Media sound = new Media(new File(hitNormal).toURI().toString());
    MediaPlayer mediaPlayer = new MediaPlayer(sound);

When I run my program, only the first click on the circle plays the hitsound, but all the following circles do not play the sound. I think what I have above should work since every time I click additional circles it always adds score. Since I have my; in the exact same if statement as the line that adds score, I expected the sound to play as well. How do I get my hitsound to play every time I click the circle?

EDIT: I added mediaPlayer.stop(); under points.value++ and it seems to occasionally play the hitsound but not always.

You properly need to check the status of media player, this method may helps mediaPlayer.getStatus().

when it's playing, another play() method seem to do nothing because it change status to playing but it already does. see MediaPlayer and MediaPlayer.Status

try use below method in your code.

mediaPlayer.stop() it will stop the media and reset current time to zero.

add this method when media is end. you can try as below code

mediaPlayer.setOnEndOfMedia(new Runnable() 
    public void run() 

or use seek current time.

when previous media isn't yet to reach end, you need to pause it and seek current time to zero before next play().
