segmentTime Property

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

Gets the current point in time along a segment of time.


[ iTime = ] currTimeState.segmentTime

Possible Values

iTime Integer that receives the current point in time along a segment of time, in seconds. The value of this property ranges from zero to segmentDur.

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


The segmentTime property contains the time elapsed since the beginning of the current iteration through an object timeline. This includes time spent in reverse mode. The following example shows how segmentTime accumulates as the timeline goes forward and backward, and then starts over when the repeatCount increments.


This example also shows how activeTime, segmentTime, and simpleTime relate to each other.
