AxWindowsMediaPlayer.newPlaylist method

The newPlaylist method returns an IWMPPlaylist interface for a new playlist.


public IWMPPlaylist newPlaylist(
  System.String bstrName,
  System.String bstrURL

Public Function newPlaylist( _
  ByVal bstrName As System.String, _
  ByVal bstrURL As System.String _
) As IWMPPlaylist



The System.String that is the name of the new playlist.


The System.String that is the URL of the Windows Media metafile playlist that is used to initialize the new playlist.

Return value

A WMPLib.IWMPPlaylist interface that represents the newly created playlist.


If the bstrURL parameter is a null or zero-length string (""), this method creates an empty playlist. If the bstrName parameter is a zero-length string (""), this method applies the current metafile name.

The new playlist created with this method is not added to the library. To add a new playlist to the library, use IWMPPlaylistCollection.importPlaylist or IWMPPlaylistCollection.newPlaylist. Any leading or trailing spaces in the playlist name are automatically removed when it is added to the library.

Because the library allows multiple playlists with the same name, you may want to check for the presence of a playlist with a given name before adding a new one.
