author property

Gets the name of the media file author.

Syntax

JScript
auth = object.author

Property values

Type: String

the name of the media file author.

Remarks

If the author's name is not available, an empty string ("") is returned.

When the author property is used with an Advanced Stream Redirector (ASX) file, it gets the author of the current active entry—not the author of the ASX file itself.

Examples

This example uses the author property to retrieve the name of the media file author.
