Pause (MediaElement)

Silverlight

Pauses media at the current position.

object.Pause()

This method pauses the media if the media is currently running. The Play method can be used to resume the media.

CanPause returns false if the MediaElement has loaded live streaming media. Calling Pause on a MediaElement that has opened and is playing streaming content does not raise an error. Instead, the method call is ignored.

The following example shows how to use the Play, Pause, and Stop methods to control the playback of a MediaElement.
