AutoScrub Property

Summary

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the object will automatically force a frame to the renderer while stopped.

Syntax
C#
VB
C++
public virtual bool AutoScrub { get; set; } 
Public Overridable Property AutoScrub As Boolean 
public: 
virtual property bool AutoScrub { 
   bool get(); 
   void set (    bool ); 
} 

Property Value

true if the object will automatically force a frame to the renderer while stopped; otherwise, false. The default value is true.

Remarks

Setting this property to false guarantees that no data will be processed when the source is assigned. This makes it possible to install callbacks without missing any data. Call Scrub when you are ready to acquire a poster frame.
