You can use the MCI_TMSF* macros to help you out here...

void __fastcall TForm1::Timer1Timer(TObject *Sender)
{
LONG CurrentInfo = MediaPlayer1->Position;
int CurrentTrack = MCI_TMSF_TRACK(CurrentInfo);
int CurrentMins = MCI_TMSF_MINUTE(CurrentInfo);
int CurrentSecs = MCI_TMSF_SECOND(CurrentInfo);

LONG TrackInfo = MediaPlayer1->TrackLength[CurrentTrack];
int TrackMins = LOBYTE(LOWORD(TrackInfo));
int TrackSecs = HIBYTE(LOWORD(TrackInfo));

int NumTracks = MediaPlayer1->Tracks;

CurrentTrackLabel->Caption = IntToStr(CurrentTrack) + " of " +
IntToStr(NumTracks);
CurrentTimeLabel->Caption = IntToStr(CurrentMins) + ":" +
IntToStr(CurrentSecs);
TrackLengthLabel->Caption = IntToStr(TrackMins) + ":" +
IntToStr(TrackSecs);
}

I hope, it helps. Alex
