Object Description currTimeState
Contains information about an HTML+TIME timeline.
Although different media-based elements exist, there is no functional difference in their current implementation. However, you are encouraged to use elements such as t:ANIMATION, t:AUDIO, t:IMG, t:MEDIA, t:REF, and t:VIDEO for improved document readability and enhanced support.
t:is used to associate this element with an XML namespace. You must declare the XML namespace in the html tag of your document when using this element.<HTML XMLNS:t ="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:time"><?IMPORT namespace="t" implementation="#default#time2">
The members listed in the following table might not be accessible through scripting until the window. onload event fires. Waiting for this event to fire ensures that the document is completely loaded, that all behaviors have been applied to corresponding elements on the document , and that all the behavior's properties, methods, and events are available for scripting. Using any of the behavior-defined members before the window. onload event fires could result in a scripting error, indicating that the object does not support that particular member.
Media elements with timed children should have their TIMECONTAINER attribute set to
parfor Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) 2.0 compatibility. Currently, media elements such as t:ANIMATION, t:AUDIO, t:IMG, t:MEDIA, t:REF, and t:VIDEO do not treat their child elements as parallel but the SMIL 2.0 specification says that media elements with timed children should be parallel. Setting this value now may prevent incompatibilities.
This element is not rendered.
This element requires a closing tag.
