Return Values

Returns an HRESULT value. Possible values include the following.

Value Description
S_OK Success.
E_NOTIMPL Not implemented.
E_POINTER NULL pointer argument.


This method returns the current position that playback has reached. The value ignores the playback rate and start time. For example, if you set the rate to 2.0 and the start time to five seconds, running the graph for four seconds yields a current position of 9.0 seconds (5 + 4 x 2.0).

If the graph is paused or stopped, the current position is the point at which playback will resume.
