public TimeSpan BufferingTime { get; set; }
<MediaElement BufferingTime="[days.]hours:minutes:seconds[fractionalSeconds]"/>

XAML Values


Optional. An integer value greater than or equal to 0 that specifies the number of days.


Required, even if 0. An integer value between 0 and 23 that specifies the number of hours.


Optional if only hours are desired, but needs to be at least set to 0 if you intend to set a seconds value. A value between 0 and 59 that specifies the number of minutes.


Optional if only hours/minutes are desired. An integer value between 0 and 59 that specifies the number of seconds.


Optional. A floating point value between 0 and 1 consisting of 1 to 7 digits that specifies fractional seconds.

  • In the grammar, [] indicates optional values, the [] are not literals. The : (colon) character is a literal, and delimits the h:m:s string form of a common timespan, or the optional days and fractionalSeconds values.

  • The required and optional aspects of these parts of a timespan reflect the consideration that without at least 0 values, the string conversion cannot know what part of the h:m:s portion of the timespan you intend to set.
