This method retrieves a value indicating the presentation time of a given marker.

Syntax

MediaPlayer.GetMarkerTime(lMarkerNum)

Parameters

*  lMarkerNum*

Long value indicating the number of the marker to return. 

Return Value

Returns a Double value indicating the presentation time of a given marker. This method returns a null string if the specified marker does not exist.

Remarks

Some media clips do not contain markers. Use the MarkerCount property to find out how many markers are in the current clip. Marker numbers start at 1. If a clip has no markers, the value of MarkerCount is zero. The following example tests MarkerCount before displaying a message box with the marker time:

If (MediaPlayer1.MarkerCount > 0) Then
  MsgBox "Marker 1 is at" + Str$(MediaPlayer1.GetMarkerTime(1)) _
     + " seconds."
End If

Requirements

Version: Windows Media Player version 6.4.

Library: Use msdxm.ocx.

Platform: Windows 98 Second Edition or higher.
