MessageDropTime Property


set the messageDropTime of <movie |
path | sound | timer> to <integer> Applies to movies, paths, sounds, timers


The messageDropTime property only takes effect if the dropMessages property is true.


For sounds, be careful about setting the messageDropTime property to unexpected values. If there is not a sound file associated with your sound object, you can still modify messageDropTime if the units property is set to milliseconds, ticks, or seconds. If the units property is set to samples, however, then you should not attempt to get or set the messageDropTime property. If you try to get or set messageDropTime in this situation while working in the authoring environment of Oracle Media Objects, then you will get an error message. If you attempt to modify messageDropTime under these circumstances while working in the runtime player, the default rate of 22KHz will be used to calculate the value of messageDropTime.
