canSeek Property

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

Gets a value that indicates whether the media file is capable of locating a specific time in the media's duration.

Syntax

HTML N/A
Scripting [ bSeek = ] object.canSeek

Possible Values

bSeek Boolean that receives one of the following values.
false
Default. Media file cannot locate a specific time in its duration.
true
Media can file locate a specific time in its duration.

The property is read-only. The property has a default value of false.

Remarks

Some streaming formats do not support seeking. The canSeek property should indicate whether a media type supports seeking. Some formats, such as streaming media, do not report the correct information regarding their ability to seek.

Media must be seekable ( canSeek = true), for the clipBegin property or the clipEnd property to work on that media.
