Detect when SoundPlay complete it's task

This code represents the problem that I am facing now:

SetSetting(SETTING_TYPE_AUDIO, AUDIO_SETTING_BACKGROUND_AUDIO, 1)
PlaySound(SOUNDS.EMPEROR_CORONATED_DAGGERFALL)
SetSetting(SETTING_TYPE_AUDIO, AUDIO_SETTING_BACKGROUND_AUDIO, 0)

The sound will be played, but I won't be able to hear it as the 3rd line executes instantly

Any solution for this?

Edit: I am looking now at

I can't seem to find a function for sound length or a sound complete event, so what you can do is first test how long the sound takes to play, and then use zo_callLater(function() changeSetting end, delayInMilliseconds)

I have found a solution

function onSoundFinishedTurnOffBackgroundAudio()
SetSetting(SETTING_TYPE_AUDIO, AUDIO_SETTING_BACKGROUND_AUDIO, 0)
end

local alertSound = ZO_QueuedSoundPlayer:New()
alertSound:SetFinishedAllSoundsCallback(onSoundFinishedTurnOffBackgroundAudio)
alertSound:PlaySound(SOUNDS.EMPEROR_CORONATED_DAGGERFALL, 3000)
