Property Value

MediaAttributeCollection

The collection of MediaAttribute objects.

This property is read-only. The default value is an empty collection.

Remarks

Attributes are generally populated on a per-source basis, and will not be valid until a source is loaded. For details, see Media Overview.

Examples

The following JavaScript example shows how to retrieve the Attributes property of a MediaElement that has a Source property set to an ASX playlist file. The retrieved MediaAttributeCollection is iterated through and the Name and Value properties of each MediaAttribute is displayed.

JavaScript
function onMediaOpened(sender, args) {
    // Variable to hold the MediaAttribute.
    var attribute;
   
    // Get the MediaAttribute named Title
    try
    {
        var attributesCollection = sender.Attributes;
        attribute = attributesCollection.getItemByName("Title");
    }
    catch(errorObj)
    {
        alert(errorObj.message);
    }
    
    // Display the Value of the MediaAttribute
    if(attribute != null)
    {
      alert("The title of the track is: " + attribute.value);
    }
}
