ITIMEMediaElement::abstract Property

This topic documents a feature of HTML+TIME 2.0, which is obsolete as of Windows Internet Explorer 9.

Gets a description of the media file.


HRESULT ITIMEMediaElement::get_abstract(BSTR *abs);


Pointer to a variable of type BSTR that receives a description of the media file.

Return Value

Returns S_OK if successful, or an error value otherwise.


If the description of the media is not available, an empty string ("") is returned.

When the ITIMEMediaElement::abstract property is used with an Advanced Stream Redirector (ASX) file, it gets the ITIMEMediaElement::abstract of the current active entry—not the abstract of the ASX file itself.
