Windows Media Player 10 Mobile: Attributes for a media item are available only during playback unless they are retrieved from the item through the media collection.

Examples

The following JScript example uses Media.attributeCount to determine the number of attributes available in the current media item. The code uses that value to print a list of attribute names and values in an HTML text area, named myText. The Player object was created with ID = "Player".

// Store the current media object.
var cm = Player.currentMedia;

// Create arrays to hold each attribute name and value.
var atNames = new Array();
var atValues = new Array();

// Loop through the attribute list.   
for(var i = 0; i < cm.attributeCount; i++){

   // Fill the arrays with the attribute info.
   atNames[i] = cm.getAttributeName(i);
   atValues[i] = cm.getItemInfo(atNames[i]);

   // Print the attribute information to the text area.
   myText.value += atNames[i] + ": " + atValues[i];
   myText.value += "\n";
}
