BufferUpdateTime property

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page


[Visual Basic]

Public Property BufferUpdateTime As Int16



public Int16 BufferUpdateTime {get; set;}



public: __property Int16 get_BufferUpdateTime();

public: __property void set_BufferUpdateTime(Int16);




The update time, expressed in milliseconds, of the DirectSound buffer used for song playback.


The supported range for this property, whose default value is 100, is between 5 and 100: higher or lower values will be automatically cut to the nearest supported value.


Decreasing the update time allows using a smaller DirectSound buffer set through the BufferLength property and also allows a better granularity in managing MIDI events but, obviously, will require a bit more CPU.
