Return Values

Returns a Double value specifying the presentation time of a given marker. This method returns a zero if the specified marker does not exist.


Some media clips do not contain markers. Use the MarkerCount property to find out how many markers are in the current clip. Marker numbers start at 1. If a clip has no markers, the value of MarkerCount is zero. The following example tests MarkerCount before displaying a message box with the marker time.

If (MediaPlayer1.MarkerCount > 0) Then
  MsgBox "Marker 1 is at" + Str$(MediaPlayer1.GetMarkerTime(1)) _
  + " seconds."
End If
