Property value

The current state of this MediaElement. The state can be one of the following (as defined in the MediaElementState enumeration): Buffering, Closed, Opening, Paused, Playing, or Stopped. The default value is Closed.

Examples

The following example demonstrates one way to display the CurrentState of a MediaElement. It creates a MediaElement and several buttons for controlling media playback. To display the current state of the MediaElement, the example registers for the CurrentStateChanged event and uses an event handler to update a TextBlock.


<Grid>
    <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
        <ColumnDefinition Width="*" />
        <ColumnDefinition Width="*" />
        <ColumnDefinition Width="*"/>
    </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
    <Grid.RowDefinitions>
        <RowDefinition Height="*" />
        <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
        <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
    </Grid.RowDefinitions>

    <MediaElement CurrentStateChanged="Media_State_Changed"
        x:Name="media" Source="xbox.wmv" Width="300" Height="300" 
                  Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="0" Grid.ColumnSpan="3" />

    <!-- Stops media playback.-->
    <Button Click="StopMedia" 
     Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="1" Content="Stop" />

    <!-- Pauses media playback. -->
    <Button Click="PauseMedia" 
     Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="1" Content="Pause" />

    <!-- Begins media playback. -->
    <Button Click="PlayMedia" 
     Grid.Column="2" Grid.Row="1" Content="Play" />

    <TextBlock
Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="2" Margin="10" 
FontSize="12">CurrentState:</TextBlock>

    <TextBlock 
x:Name="mediaStateTextBlock"
Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="2" Margin="0,10,0,0"
FontSize="12"></TextBlock>

</Grid>
