MCI_MARK command

The MCI_MARK command records or erases marks that can be used with the MCI_SEEK command for high-speed searches. VCR devices recognize this command.

To send this command, call the mciSendCommand function with the following parameters.



MCIERROR mciSendCommand(
  MCIDEVICEID wDeviceID, 
  MCI_MARK, 
  DWORD dwFlags, 
  (DWORD) (LPMCI_GENERIC_PARMS) lpMark
);

dwFlags

MCI_NOTIFY, MCI_WAIT, or MCI_TEST. For information about these flags, see The Wait, Notify, and Test Flags.
