SourceObject Property

Summary

Gets or sets the media source object.

Syntax
C#
VB
C++
public virtual object SourceObject { get; set; } 
Public Overridable Property SourceObject As Object 
public: 
virtual property Object^ SourceObject { 
   Object^ get(); 
   void set (    Object^ ); 
} 

Property Value

A System.Object value representing the media source object.

Remarks

Use this property to assign a COM object as the media source for the conversion process. The object may be a SampleSource object or any other DirectShow source filter. The SourceType will be set to SourceObjectType.Object. Assignment can raise an error exception. For more information, refer to the Error Codes. Note: When setting this property, the Play control must be in the stopped state.
