CurrentPosition Property

Summary

Gets or sets the current position, relative to the total duration of the media, in seconds.

Syntax

C#
VB
C++
public virtual double CurrentPosition { get; set; } 
Public Overridable Property CurrentPosition As Double 
public: 
virtual property double CurrentPosition { 
   double get(); 
   void set (    double ); 
} 

Property Value

A value representing the current playback position.

Remarks

This property is the current position that playback has reached. The value ignores the playback rate and start time. For example, if the rate is set to 2.0 and the start time to 5 seconds, playing the media for 4 seconds yields a current position of 9.0 seconds (5 + 4 x 2.0). If the media is paused or stopped, the current position is the point at which playback will resume. Call CheckSeekingCapabilities to determine whether PlaySeeking.Forward and PlaySeeking.Backward are enabled. For more information, refer to the PlaySeeking enumeration.
