        HIGMULT hMult,
        LPAT_UINT lpNumFrames,
        LPAT_UINT lpDuration


Name Type Description

Copy Code
AT_ERRCOUNT nErrcount;  /* Number of errors on stack */
HIGMULT hMult;          /* Multimedia instance handle */
AT_UINT numFrames;      /* Total number of frames in file */
AT_UINT msDuration;     /* Duration of file in milliseconds */
nErrcount = IG_mult_duration_get(hMult, &numFrames, &msDuration);


You can pass NULL for one of these arguments if you only need the other one. You can use this function to determine how many frames are in a multimedia instance and how long it would play for if played at normal speed.
