[ACCEPTED]-Binding a progressbar to a mediaelement in wpf-mediaelement

That is because Media is not opened and 6 hence the progress bar is not aware of the 5 maximum value. Try this...

Use the following 4 events for MediaOpened, and MouseLeftButtonUp 3 for your progress bar or slider. I tried 2 it, and it works just fine.

public partial class AudioPage : Page
{
    TimeSpan _position;
    DispatcherTimer _timer = new DispatcherTimer();

    public AudioPage()
    {
        InitializeComponent();
        _timer.Interval = TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(1000);
        _timer.Tick += new EventHandler(ticktock);
        _timer.Start();
    }

    void ticktock(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        sliderSeek.Value = media.Position.TotalSeconds;
    }

    // Executes when the user navigates to this page.
    protected override void OnNavigatedTo(NavigationEventArgs e)
    {
    }

    private void Play_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    {
        media.Play();
    }

    private void Pause_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    {
        media.Pause();
    }

    private void Stop_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    {
        media.Stop();
    }

    private void media_MediaOpened(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    {
        _position = media.NaturalDuration.TimeSpan;
        sliderSeek.Minimum = 0;
        sliderSeek.Maximum = _position.TotalSeconds;
    }

    private void sliderSeek_MouseLeftButtonUp(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
    {
        int pos = Convert.ToInt32(sliderSeek.Value);
        media.Position = new TimeSpan(0, 0, 0, pos, 0);
    }
}

The associate 1 XAMl is as follows...

<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="#FFFFE8E8">
    <Grid.RowDefinitions>
        <RowDefinition Height="220*" />
        <RowDefinition Height="75*" />
    </Grid.RowDefinitions>
    <MediaElement Height="189" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="12,12,0,0" Name="media" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="399" Source="anyfile.mp3" AutoPlay="True" MediaOpened="media_MediaOpened" />
    <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" Grid.Row="1" Height="30" Margin="12,8,163,37">
        <TextBlock Text="Volume" VerticalAlignment="Center"></TextBlock>
        <Slider Margin="2" Maximum="1" Minimum="0" Width="102" Value="{Binding Path=Volume, Mode=TwoWay, ElementName=media}"></Slider>
        <TextBlock Text="{Binding ElementName=media, Path=Volume, Mode=OneWay, StringFormat=0.00}" VerticalAlignment="Center" />
    </StackPanel>
    <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" Grid.Row="1" Height="30" Margin="26,47,163,-2">

        <Slider Margin="2" Width="104" Name="sliderSeek" MouseLeftButtonUp="sliderSeek_MouseLeftButtonUp"></Slider>
        <TextBlock Text="{Binding ElementName=sliderSeek, Path=Value, StringFormat=0}" VerticalAlignment="Center"></TextBlock>
    </StackPanel>
    <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" Grid.Row="1" Height="30" Margin="266,8,12,37">

        <Button Name="Pause" Content="Pause" Margin="2" Click="Pause_Click" />
        <Button Name="Stop" Content="Stop" Margin="2" Click="Stop_Click" />
    </StackPanel>

I tried to bind the values and came to this, but 3 without success:

<ProgressBar 
    x:Name="testProgressBar" Minimum="0" 
    Maximum="{Binding NaturalDuration.TimeSpan.TotalSeconds, ElementName=mediaPlayer}" 
    Value="{Binding Position.TotalSeconds, ElementName=mediaPlayer, Mode=OneWay}" />

Too bad it doesn't work.
I 2 am afraid that you will need a timer set 1 up.
Something like:

*.xaml

<ProgressBar x:Name="testProgressBar" />

*.cs

    public MainWindow()
    {
        InitializeComponent();
        DispatcherTimer timer = new DispatcherTimer();
        timer.Interval = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1);
        timer.Tick += timer_Tick;
        timer.Start();
    }
    private void timer_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (mediaPlayer.Source != null && mediaPlayer.NaturalDuration.HasTimeSpan)
        {
            testProgressBar.Minimum = 0;
            testProgressBar.Maximum = mediaPlayer.NaturalDuration.TimeSpan.TotalSeconds;
            testProgressBar.Value = mediaPlayer.Position.TotalSeconds;
        }
    }

Kind regards,
Thimo.

A WPF version of Rahul's sample with added 2 real-time change of media position while 1 sliding the bar.

public partial class MainWindow : Window
{
    public MainWindow()
    {
        InitializeComponent();

        _timer.Interval = TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(1000);
        _timer.Tick += new EventHandler(ticktock);
        _timer.Start();

        Open(@"filename.mp3");
    }
    public void Open(string fileName)
    {
        var uriPath = "file:///" + fileName.Replace("\\", "/");
        media.Source=new Uri(uriPath);
    }

    TimeSpan _position;
    DispatcherTimer _timer = new DispatcherTimer();

    void ticktock(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (!sliderSeek.IsMouseCaptureWithin)
            sliderSeek.Value = media.Position.TotalSeconds;
    }

    private void Play_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    {
        media.Play();
    }

    private void Pause_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    {
        media.Pause();
    }

    private void Stop_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    {
        media.Stop();
    }

    private void media_MediaOpened(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    {
        _position = media.NaturalDuration.TimeSpan;
        sliderSeek.Minimum = 0;
        sliderSeek.Maximum = _position.TotalSeconds;
    }

    private void sliderSeek_PreviewMouseLeftButtonUp(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
    {           
        int pos = Convert.ToInt32(sliderSeek.Value);
        media.Position = new TimeSpan(0, 0, 0, pos, 0);
    }

    private void sliderSeek_ValueChanged(object sender, RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs<double> e)
    {
        if (sliderSeek.IsMouseCaptureWithin)
        {
            int pos = Convert.ToInt32(sliderSeek.Value);
            media.Position = new TimeSpan(0, 0, 0, pos, 0);
        }
    }

There is a wrapper library called Gu.Wpf.Media in GitHub 4 that handles all the problems of the MediaElement and 3 brings more.

It supports binding to Position property 2 via TwoWay binding out of the box. No need to 1 hassle with timers.
