The previous method sets the current item to the previous item in the playlist.
This method has no parameters.
This method does not return a value.
If the playlist is on the first entry when previous is invoked, the last entry in the playlist will become the current one.
The following example creates an HTML BUTTON element that uses previous to move to the preceding item in the current playlist. The Player object was created with ID = "Player".
<INPUT TYPE = "BUTTON" ID = "PREV" NAME = "PREV" VALUE = "|<<" onClick = " /* Check first to be sure the operation is valid. */ if (Player.controls.isAvailable('Previous')) /* Move to the preceding item in the playlist. */ Player.controls.previous(); ">
