Stopping, Pausing, and Resuming a Device
) command suspends the playing or recording of a device. Many devices also
support the pause
) command. The difference between stop
depends on the device. Usually pause
suspends operation but leaves the device ready to resume playing or recording
Using the play
) or record
) command to restart a device resets the locations specified with the "to"
(MCI_TO) and "from" (MCI_FROM) flags before the device was paused or stopped.
Without the "from" flag, these commands reset the starting location to the current
position. Without the "to" flag, they reset the ending location to the end of
the media. To continue playing or recording without resetting a previously
specified stop position, use the play
command's "to" flag to specify an ending position.
Some devices support the resume
) command to restart a paused device. This command does not change the "to"
and "from" locations specified with the play
command that preceded the pause
