Balance Property

The Balance property sets or retrieves the speaker balance for the audio stream output.


[ iBalance = ] MSWebDVD.Balance

Return Values

Returns and nteger value representing the balance levels. The allowable input range is -10,000 to 10,000. A value of 0 sets a neutral balance, that is both left and right speakers are given the same amplitude audio signal.


This property is read/write with a default value of 0, meaning that both speakers receive equivalent audio signals. As with the Volume property, units correspond to .01 decibels (multiplied by -1 when iBalance is a positive value). For example, a value of 1000 indicates 10 dB on the right channel and 90 dB on the left channel.
