I think a variable would be more appropriate in this situation.

Take a look at the NSSound docs -- pause and resume each return a Boolean value depending upon their current state.

Below is a little example of how you can test them.

In this code we load and start the sound but immediately pause it, and test the state of pause. Then we let the system sleep three seconds, resume play and test its state.

I used a system sound, but a longer sound file would make the results more impressive.


include "NSLog.incl"

BOOL isPaused, isResumed;
NSSound *snd = [NSSound soundNamed:@"Submarine"];
[snd play];
isPaused = [snd pause];
NSLog(@"isPaused = %@", (isPaused ? @"YES" : @"NO"));
isResumed = [snd resume];
NSLog(@"isResumed = %@", (isResumed ? @"YES" : @"NO"));
NSLog(@"Playing now.");
[snd play];
