[The feature associated with this page, Windows Media Player SDK, is a legacy feature. It has been superseded by MediaPlayer. MediaPlayer has been optimized for Windows 10 and Windows 11. Microsoft strongly recommends that new code use MediaPlayer instead of Windows Media Player SDK, when possible. Microsoft suggests that existing code that uses the legacy APIs be rewritten to use the new APIs if possible.]

The foregroundColor attribute specifies or retrieves the foreground color of the slider control.


Possible Values

This attribute is a read/write String containing any Microsoft Internet Explorer color value. The default value is "white".


A basic slider control can be constructed by specifying one of two pairs of attributes: the backgroundColor and foregroundColor, or the backgroundImage and foregroundImage.

When you construct a slider control using the color attributes, the dimensions of the slider control define the area filled by the background color. The foreground color covers the background color as the slider position increases.

To make a gradient fill in the area occupied by the background or foreground color, specify the backgroundEndColor or foregroundEndColor attributes.

See the CUSTOMSLIDER.positionImage attribute for a sample illustrating how the attributes of the SLIDER element are used.
