GetPlaybackStatus method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Remarks

 

Obtains the current playback status.

 

This method should be used when the control has been set to work with sound pre-loading through a call to the EnableSoundPreloadForPlayback method: in order to optimize system resources, when pre-loading is disabled (default situation), the stream to play is only loaded when specifically requested through a call to the PlaySound or PlaySoundRange methods and automatically discarded from memory after a call to the StopSound method or when the end of the song is reached.
