author Property

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

Gets the name of the media file author.

Syntax

HTML N/A
Scripting [ sName = ] object.author

Possible Values

sName String that receives the name of the media file author.

The property is read-only. The property has no default value.

Remarks

If the author's name is not available, an empty string ("") is returned.

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

Example

This example uses the author property to retrieve the name of the media file author.
