MCIWndGetTimeFormat macro

The MCIWndGetTimeFormat macro retrieves the current time format of an MCI device in two forms: as a numerical value and as a string. You can use this macro or explicitly send the MCIWNDM_GETTIMEFORMAT message.

Syntax

void MCIWndGetTimeFormat(
   hwnd,
   lp,
   len
);

Parameters

hwnd

Handle of the MCIWnd window.

lp

Pointer to a buffer to contain the null-terminated string form of the time format.

len

Size, in bytes, of the buffer.

Return Value

None

Remarks

If the time format string is longer than the return buffer, MCIWnd truncates the string.

An MCI device can support one or more of the following time formats:

Time format MCI constant
Bytes MCI_FORMAT_BYTES
Frames MCI_FORMAT_FRAMES
Hours, minutes, seconds MCI_FORMAT_HMS
